Lori Nix - Accidentally Kansas

"In Accidentally Kansas I offer viewers the terror of the terrain—found not in the image itself, but in their own imaginations. Through the mind's own processes of massification my Dixie Cup sized pieces of wood and miniatures become large and looming, such as a nuclear reactor meltdown, even if it's just for a couple of seconds."
A wonderful collection of work by Lori Nix mixing photography and model making. Pictured is an extract from the series ‘Accidentally Kansas’, which explores Nix’s memories of growing up in the state combined with her love of 1970’s disaster movies.
