These beautiful images of disastrous scenes are from Lori Nix's collection. Entitled 'The City,' these photos take a look at a post-apocalypse cityscape. The artist creates these miniature models of landscapes herself prior to the taking of these photographs.

The entire series of photos is pretty stunning, and to think it was all derived from miniature models! I think that's the part that gets me the most!

Implications - As consumers continue their recovery from the economic recession, there is still much public demand for products to distract them from their current financial predicaments. Surrealistic artwork satiates consumers' need for escapism rather effectively as it stimulates viewers in abstract ways. Corporations looking to increase the popularity of their wares may consider incorporating surrealistic and fantastic elements into their product designs.
