Life Inside a Glass Dome
Artist Dominic Wilcox has launched a collection of adapted watches with miniature figures inside of them. Each art piece tells a different story from the “Seated Man” to the “Adventures of a Young Vegetarian.”
Notes by Wilcox (from his blog):
I’ve put tiny figures onto watch hands in order to create mini animated scenes. I had the idea last year during my Speed creating project, but decided it was too good to rush. 8 month later I showed a prototype to Dezeen and they commissioned me to make a collection. The watches use customised model figures and I also made objects, like a miniature looted LCD tv. The glass domes were specially made to fit by Wearside Glass Sculptures in my home town of Sunderland at the National Glass Centre.
“Adventures of a Young Vegetarian; a small girl attempts to stop a butcher [from] chopping up a pig…”
