The Institute of Intimate Museums series revolves around stunningly detailed dioramas. Unlike similar creations that exist on a specially crafted platform in one form or another, these mini museums were created inside existing pasta boxes. The unique art collection is currently being showcased at Scope Basel 2012.

Put together by Japanese artist Kenji Sugiyama, the Institute of Intimate Museums series is very life-like, except for the fact that they are only a fraction of the size of real-life settings. The rooms that house figurines observing gallery paintings come complete with wooden floors and dated wallpaper. The artist writes, "My creation comes from this gap between what you watch and what you recognize. For example, people watch same objects and how many people will have same impression?"
