Mold-covered Miniatures of abandoned Houses

Daniele Del Nero bastelt Miniaturen verlassener Häuser und lässt sie dann wortwörtlich verschimmeln. Der Pilz stirbt ab und hinterlässt eine Spinnenwebartige Struktur auf den Modellen. Die Dinger sehen aus, wie die Häuser aus der grandiosen King-Verfilmung „Der Nebel“.

Grown over several days, the mould used to create these stunning models then dies after two weeks leaving a layer of dust akin to a spider’s web which gives the miniature houses their creepy and mesmerising look. “I’ve always been fascinated by old ruined buildings,” says Del Nero, in an interview. “We are used to imagining our cities as permanent and definitive, but it’s amazing how little time it takes for nature to reclaim its spaces.”
