Floating world only exist in anime and sci-fi fantasy movies, but that doesn’t mean we cannot live the dream, well, at least in miniature proportions. You can’t actually fly up to these tiny gravity-defying worlds cos’ they are obviously not of real world size, but Micro Matter by Dutch artist Rose de Jong aka Byrosa will mesmerize you and probably fuel your imagination, and it really is as surreal as it can gets. Rosa whipped up these magical worlds, each housed in a test tube, using materials like sticks, rocks and sand to create scenes like camping in the woods, house over a rocky cliff, and skyscraper on clouds. Basically, Rose’s Micro Matter looks something straight out of the James Cameron’s sci-fi flick Avatar – minus the infinite waterfall, of course.
Micro Matter is an art worthy of any contemporary homes. Heck, I’d say it will look good even in the shabbiest looking abode. Admiring these miniature arts will transport you to another world – a world which you’d wish you will stay on forever and not come back. But wait, I do hope these worlds have Internet and UPS could reach there. Anyways, good news is, soon you will be able own a piece of Rose de Jong’s work of art. She is working to set up an online store where you can acquire Micro Matter. Though it is not clear when the store will be ready. Meanwhile, may we suggest you sniff out her website to learn more about these tiny masterpieces.
