The work of Nicole Gustafsson, an artist based in the Pacific Northwest and also known by the name Nimasprout, is both whimsical and detailed. Yet there is more than what first meets the eye when it comes to these artworks. The terrariums depict pop culture worlds from everything including Twin Peaks and Dune to Super Mario Bros. 2 and Street Fighter.

With a focus on the late '80s and early '90s, Nicole Gustafsson gives nostalgia a different face. She comments on what draws her to that particular era, "There was kind of a sense of discovery when you found a movie or game you really liked." As for today's audience, Nicole Gustafsson elaborates, "Now when a new game or movie is announced I know in a matter of minutes and have access to trailers immediately."
