The Diorama Perfection



Remember when you were in middle school and you made that sweet shoebox diorama of The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler or To Kill a Mockingbird? Imagine making that project as an adult, with the benefits of fine motor skills and life experience. Well, that project dream has been put into practice. The results are charming, and we have a library and its creative community to thank.


Rochambeau Library in Providence, R.I. hosted the first "Dear Diorama" competition this month, an outreach contest in which adults submitted dioramas of their favorite books. PolicyMic spoke with Matthew Lawrence, an organizer of the event who describes the library as, "an independent non-profit, unlike city-run libraries in most of the country, so on a very basic level we rely pretty heavily on community support."


Most of us fall in love with New York through the movies, books, music and other cultural touchstones that make it real for us. This beautiful diorama of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn feels both loved and lovely. Check out the details of all those people in their windows.


The diorama for The Great Gatsby looks like a punky, precious collage you might have made as a teenager. With the florals, the magazine cutouts and handwritten notes, it feels both familiar and fresh.


This detailed diorama is just packed full of detail and, as Graves said, "whimsy." The story follows members of a circus troupe, touching on themes of love, age, intimacy, trust and secrecy. As viewers, it's lovely to see such meticulousness. It almost looks like a scene from one of those I Spy books we loved as children.


Alice in Wonderland is one of those marvelous books that reminds us why we first loved reading. Marketed at children but written to engage an older audience, it's a joy to rediscover in adulthood. This diorama is one of the more technically developed and depicts Absolem talking with Alice.


"In terms of technical wizardry, I have to say Morgan's execution of Watership Down was flawless with the use of the ukelele to construct a subterranean tableau," Graves said of this diorama. We have to agree.


Doing projects in the classroom is not a new concept. In fact, many of our fondest memories from school include the diorama we glued and glittered to perfection, based on a book we read or depicting a time from history. Project oriented learning focuses on the final product versus the process. This is indeed fun and has a place in the classroom, but do we remember much from that assignment?


I would like to focus on what makes PBL different from the dioramas of our past. The project is teacher-guided and this effort from the teacher occurs before the project starts with background lessons providing excitement and interest. With PBL, students are given the topic and they decide the direction and the focus of their research. They develop a driving question and how it will be answered. PBL offers an opportunity for varied assessment along the way and empowers students to show and explain their motivation for their project and how well they know and can speak about their topic. In comparison, a typical project oriented lesson of the past would use the project as the culminating activity, often done at home, following a set of directions that have been used for years. There is not much room for students to make choices or guide the direction of this type of project, which can leave students feeling like it is just more work.


The new work is increasingly personal while still plugging into the idea of archetypes. This go-round, the artist focuses on floral landscapes with implicit references to biblical gardens and beauty. The idea of beauty and perfection is willfully cancelled between each of the layers of landscapes which comprise each painting as he covers over each colorful layer with gray or black and begins anew. Painting topics include species that bloom at night, species that are toxic or poisonous, and flowers that bloom in the morning. It is a meditation on coming and going, aspiring to belong after life's many trials, and casting aside unattainable and confining ideas of perfection.

Today we learned that these figures will also include pieces of a rooftop diorama you can build when purchased at comic shops and specialty stores (not at Toys "R" Us). In the photos that follow, we see some in-progress shots of the diorama. Note that the colors here are not final and you will need to collect all fifteen figures from the five series of Ghostbusters Select action figures to build the full rooftop!


Hitman GO eschews the free movement typically found in its source material, instead having players move the Agent 47 game piece (aww, wookit how cyute he wooks) with the directional pad. Each level looks like a diorama, and you are tasked with either reaching the other side of the board while avoiding obstacles or hitting mans killing a target.
