This was a little thing I put together as part of the Art House Co-Op's Jar project. For those unfamiliar, the Co-op comes up with art projects that everyday folks can sign up for over the internet. In the case of the Jar Project, participants received a small mason jar from the Co-op which they were instructed to "fill with stories" and mail back.
I knew from the get-go that I wanted to make a weird diorama. I've always been fascinated by model building, particularly overly elaborate HO-scale train sets, so I decided to try my hand at it. Unfortunately, I put the project on the back burner for too long and ended up having to put the entire project together in just a few hours.
All those last-minute late nights in college finally paid off.
The end result is a little more half-assed and a little less creepy than what I had wanted to put together, but I was limited in the materials I could procure and the time I could invest. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the outcome and will definitely be doing more of these in the future. In fact, I've already signed up to do the Co-op's Mystery Project.
