The Matchbox Theatre

I had the idea to deconstruct and object, and reconstruct it in a completely┬ádifferent way. I went on to create a series of miniature theatre shows inside matchboxes, made using┬áthe original materials provided by the matchbox. The three pictured below are ‘An Evening at the Ballet’, ‘An Evening at the Circus’, and ‘An Evening of Magic.’ By winding the matchbox, using the matches, the theatre presents it’s show.

Mixed materials, hand painted.
