Patrick Jacobs Creates Lush Miniature Scenes with Infinite Depth

 - Mar 4, 2013

Patrick Jacobs gives people a unique glimpse of the natural world through tiny portholes. As though part of an elaborate magic spell worthy of the 'Harry Potter' franchise, a pristine white art gallery has been periodically punctured with these portholes that show off nature-inspired dioramas of secret gardens, lush forests and more.

Born in California and based in Brooklyn, New York, Patrick Jacobs' miniature scenes look incredibly realistic. To enhance the eye-height view of the little settings, Patrick Jacobs uses small glass lens window with a negative focal length. As though peering through a common apartment door peep-hole, the foreshortened perspective gives the impression that his worlds have an infinite depth, thus encouraging the viewer to exercise his or her equally vast imagination whilst looking through.
