Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz, Snow Globes, mixed media



Caitlin showed me this exhibition the other day and its amazing. Martin and Munoz have been making snow globes with these touching and yet unsettling scenes. They seem to use the confines of the globe as a diorama for images of human interaction, sometimes familiar, and sometimes supernatural. The images below are from the Travelers series, but you can also see their Islands series as well as the rest of the collection here. Their current exhibition is in Spain, but have another opening March 1 in Sheboygan Wisconsin. Look here for exhibition information

These are neat. I want one of me walking my dogs in the snow.

This isn't related to the post, but I got the Domino magazine with Zooey Deschanel (sp?) on the front. You can have it after I read it if you want.
