Like broken people, broken houses tell more interesting stories. Just look at these miniature houses by Savona and Milan based artist Daniele Del Nero from the “Brockenhaus” series. Using black paper, Del Nero constructs architectural scale models of deserted towns. To create the effect of neglect and abandonment, the artist covers the black paper with construction paste and flour.
In his artist statement, Del Nero writes, “My purpose is to talk about the sense of time and destiny of the planet after the human species, through the sense of restlessness which abandoned buildings are able to communicate.”
For the work of another artist who builds paper architectural models of city spaces, see “Cut paper sculptures of urban architecturcut-paper-sculptures-urban-archie by Stephanie Beck.
