Weekly updates from BLDG 25

all the small things

These incredible works of art are real, and so so tiny! Willard Wigan of the UK carves grains of rice or sugar into his miniature-sized sculptures, and then uses a hair from the back of a housefly to paint them! When they are on display in a gallery, each of his works has a microscope so you can see them – but when Willard works on them, he does so with the naked eye! I can’t even imagine, since most of his work is on the head of a pin or the eye of needle! I found a really cool video interview with him on Metacafe that you should have a look at; I posted it below!
