From the article by Newsworks:

This weekend, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University will open an exhibition of dioramas, revealing how dioramas are made. In effect, putting natural history museums under glass.

Lori Nix, part of the team behind them, is known for making highly detailed dioramas of post-apocalyptic urban scenes. When she wants to take a break from that, she makes these miniature dioramas about dioramas.

She prefers not to leave her Brooklyn apartment. The artist makes creates narrative scenes featuring animals from all over the world, but she and her partner Kathleen Gerber make them without leaving home.
