From Rosemary Schweitzer and Rory Larson’s article for The Ranger News:
“The City” by Lori Nix is an eerily inspiring and thought-provoking art exhibition using models of abandoned and derelict locations. Nix’s art depicts many everyday locations from shopping malls, laundromats, and salons to more unique ones such as a space center and a control room in an unknown context.
Each model is meticulously crafted and seems so lifelike that at a glance one might not even know it is a model. It is the details that make each scene so intriguing and yet so haunting. The photos depict only the manufactured and natural environment with no living subjects anywhere to be found which leaves the viewer wondering, “where did the people go?”
