Artist and photographer Lori Nix from Kansas, where tornadoes constantly sweep by, has been drawing inspiration from the inevitable end of the world for a long time. Will it be a flood? Maybe a meteorite? Or a nuclear attack? And what will it look like?
Now Nicks lives in Brooklyn and uses his talent in needlework and photography to offer his answer to these questions. In these amazingly detailed scenes — a flooded power plant, a crumbling laundry, an abandoned library with trees growing through the floor. Each miniature is the size of a dollhouse: 50 × 61 × 183 cm. The artist shoots them on film, and it seems that in fact they are full-size scenes.
It looks like a tornado has passed through this library or it's the consequences of a meteorite fall. The roof collapsed, and debris scattered all over the floor.
The bar was abandoned by people in a hurry.
An abandoned casino.
Nuclear power plant after the flood. All the control panels are rusty.
No one else does laundry in this laundry room.
In the library, trees sprouted through the floor.
A hall with dinosaurs in an abandoned museum. It feels like the dinosaurs came to life and caused this chaos themselves.
An abandoned beauty salon. The artist stuck her hand through the door to give a visual representation of the scale of her miniatures.
This is how metro trains will look like, which will remain on the surface after the end of the world.
Office. Amazingly accurate and realistic elaboration of details, which makes it even a little creepy.
Theater after the end of the last season on earth.
Nature is gradually taking over an abandoned shopping mall.
The hall with the cards is slowly being destroyed.
The observatory, a place from where people looked at the sky to better understand this world, turned out to be deserted and is gradually surrendering to flora.
The church after the end of the world.
Chinese fast food. All that's left is a dusty moped and debris on the floor.
