“There is nothing small in the world, it depends on the point of view” – this quote is attributed to the German pharmacist and company founder August Oetker. The Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka sees it very similarly. On his website he writes: “Broccoli and parsley sometimes look like trees – and leaves floating on the surface of the water look like small boats. Everyday occurrences, viewed from a miniature perspective, can give us many entertaining moments. “
Since April 2011 Tanaka has actually been designing a remarkable diorama every day, in which he artfully stages, illuminates and professionally photographs objects, food, plants and many other things. On his website https://miniature-calendar.com/ All of these works of art can be viewed – and there are wonderful things to see: for example an airplane made of a radish and apple slices, including tiny passengers and baggage vehicles, or a hairdresser who uses a pipe as a dryer hood. In Tanaka’s miniature world, an ice cream stick becomes a springboard and a matchbox becomes a concert grand piano. The most pleasant thing about the gallery: a new picture is added every day. More beautiful – and lower in calories – than many Advent calendars. By the way, you can have an analog version of the calendar shipped to Germany for a certain amount of postage.
