Institute of Intimate Museums/Viewer Outside: Dioramas by Kenji Sugiyama
A series of intricate dioramas created in 2005 that replicates the museum experience.
Viewers create their own museums from my work by remembering the museums that they have visited before and reconstructing that memory in their minds. What viewers see depends on their attention area, their eyesight, and their past experiences in similar spaces. In other words, each museum looks different to each viewer.
