Artists Create Elaborately Detailed Miniature Worlds For Their Snails

Artists, filmmakers photographers Aleia Murawski and Samuel Copeland create elaborately detailed miniature worlds for their pet snails. The dioramic designs include the high life, with limousines and champagne coupe beds, the lowbrow with paper-dragging bathrooms, the mundane with office work, the playful with a skateboard ride to the extraterrestrial with a visitation.

“We made a terrarium for them…and around the same time, we started making miniature scenes together. At first, we were keeping them as pets and just loved looking at them every day. Then we realized, the sets we were making were roughly snail-sized and we loved the idea of animating these rooms,” they said.

Hey, This is Another Note to Myself, to Stop Getting In My Head and Worrying About What Something Looks Like, And Give Into the Process of Making Something. It Has Always Been Something That Made You Feel Good, Sad, Confused, So This is Really No Different. Stop Trying To Control These Steps. You Have Made Things In The Past That You're Proud of, And You Will Continue to Surprise Yourself. Every Time You Stop Yourself From Making Something Because You Think It Is Not Good Enough, You Become More of a Stranger to Yourself. Get To That Place Where You Make Something Small, And Then the Next. Keep Following Your Little Creative Gut Out Of Things. Open It Up When You Want To And When You Don't, Savor This Secret Ugly Mess Because There is Something Beautiful Brewing In Here Just Waiting To Come Out 🐌🍇
