From the article by Sarah Motter for WIBW:
Nix and Gerber are Brooklyn-based artists that create elaborate dioramas and miniatures captured in photographs that depict a future in which man-made environments have been emptied of human inhabitants and reclaimed by nature. Nix grew up in western Kansas and channels a fascination with natural disasters she experienced as a child. [The artists’] collaborative work is included in collections like the Smithsonian Art Museum in Washington, D.C.; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence. The pair has also illustrated stories for magazines like The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Time Magazine, O Magazine, Wired, and New York Magazine.
