Tiny Refuges

One way to explore refuges is to create tiny ones. These can be made in any number of ways using shadow boxes, a bookcase, miniature rooms, and “fairy houses” made of natural materials out in the woods. I created a number of tiny environments to my specific tastes over the years including a project that captured light using a transparent plastic cube. Below you will see an antique shop, a fall kitchen, a room at an inn, a Chinese restaurant, a Japanese tea ceremony with a badger guest, a weaver’s workshop, and a cube in my garden.
