Sculpturally Animated Miniature Catastrophes

Jose Luis Rojas, an artist we came across on Behance, stages catastrophic scenarios in miniature, using toys and small-scale models as stand-ins for militant groups at battle, car crashes, and more. The Mexico-based artist constructs these devastating scenes using basic materials like cardboard and even painted cauliflower to represent the plumes of smoke and fire billowing from wreckage sites. The same process — which sometimes feels almost uncanny — extends to a photo of legendary cartoon characters caught in a scuffle amid an sculpturally animated dust cloud, created from … more cauliflower. Take a closer look at Rojas’ mini catastrophes in our gallery past the break.
