From Tomo Taka’s article regarding Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber’s miniature dioramas for CNN Style:
Traveling is overrated. Just ask New York creatives Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber, who explore otherworldly places from the comfort of their apartment, making dioramas of settings devoid of humans.
Their ongoing series — titled “The City” — imagines a parallel universe where humankind is extinct and nature has already started to reclaim the concrete jungle. Think of it as a journey through apocalyptic architecture.
“I’m really not much of a traveler, except in my head. I am by nature a homebody,” says Nix. “Rather than go out into the world in search of these scenes, I choose to stay in my apartment and build my own worlds.”
