You may have had a thought like this once: ‘that broccoli looks like a forest from up close’. And then you would cut it up and eat it without thinking about it anymore. That’s not the case with Tatsuya Tanaka, who has created pocket-sized scenes of everyday life from all kinds of everyday objects.

Pocket-sized scenes of daily life
Tatsuya Tanaka didn’t just think the broccoli looked like a forest, he actually made it into a forest by combining it with his miniature people. Initially he wanted to make it a two-year long project, but he’s been doing it since 2011 and is still going on. A potato turns into a bicycle track, a toothbrush becomes a shower and a simple toilet roll changes into Antartica. Tanaka lets you see ordinairy objects in a whole new perspective. Like he says himself:
Everyday occurrences seen from a pygmy’s perspective can bring us lots of fun thoughts. It would be great if you could use it to add a little enjoyment to your everyday life.
