Infinite Autumn by MirachRavaia Infinite Autumn by MirachRavaia
For the Favourite Fall Memory diorama contest.

About the memory: My favourite memories of fall are more feelings then memories. They are from early childhood, there is my great-granmother in them, her cat, the smell of freshly baked cake inside and the smell of smoke, dead leaves, and brisk wind outside. I tried to make a diorama from all these ingredients.

About the diorama: I though about thinking outside the box... in a box. This is the result :) I wanted to create a diorama where the ouside of the box, where you are looking from, is actually inside, and you are looking out - into the box, which contains infinite space. The street is really infinite because of the mirrors I used, so the actual space inside the box appears much bigger than it really is - like a wizard's hat :)

About the title: the title is obvious because of the mirrors, but it also has a metaphorical meaning, as a wish for a happy memory to last forever, though it never does...

Materials: cardboard, paper, modurit, plaster, felt, ribbon, aquarium gravel, mirror (replaceable for mirror foil)

I always would like to make a maket home.

besides using mirrors in garden make the scene bigger!

I'm not quite sure what to do with it now, and where to put it, but I enjoyed making it :D

It's better to give it to a maket lover or a child and watch the home demolish... :aww:

Heartwarming.
My grandmother grew up close to the Slovakian border, there are hills and forests and she knew well the birds and plants. She walked with me in the vine-hill, the trees were colourful, and we watched the birds and everything was so calm. Long time I didn't think on that autumn memory. Thank you for reminding me. :hug:
Good luck for the contest!
