Dioramas of North

Dioramas of North series, 2007

This two miniature dioramas are inset with pinhole photographs of plastic toys in the Alaskan landscape. Tiny people stand outside the glass, looking in. The pieces tell stories of institutions telling stories about the north. They depict a romanticized, national, often plastic idea of North, where the land and racist ideas about indigeneity are intertwined.
