From Kaitlyn Schaeffer’s article for Complex:

When construction is finished, Nix sets up a complex lighting apparatus for the photography session that ensues. Her dioramas often depict familiar locations, such as libraries and restaurants, but with a humorous dark twist. “I am interested in depicting danger and disaster” the artist writes on her website. Her photos capture post-apocalyptic scenes from a world eerily like our own, presenting the viewer with a scenario where “something either natural or as the result of mankind has emptied the city of its human inhabitants.”
