Tanaka Tatsuya Transforms The Mundane Into The Magical

Tanaka Tatsuya approaches each day with a challenge in mind: to see mundane items in a new way. Maybe that broccoli is actually a mystical forest, or that discarded water bottle a submarine. This ever-evolving view of everyday objects has become a daily labor of love for over three years.

Since then, Tanaka Tatsuya has created miniature dioramas out of food, trinkets, and other everyday items and posted them to his ‘Miniature Calendar’ online project. When asked about the inspiration for such a project, Tatsuya responded; “Everyone must have had similar thoughts at least once.”

Tanaka Tatsuya has maintained the level of imagination and love of play that most of us lose as we venture into adulthood. His miniature dioramas let us steal a glimpse at what we have left behind:

Tanaka Tatsuya Aquarium

A day at the aquarium seems much more peaceful for these little people. No crowds to be fought here!

Tanaka Tatsuya Attack On Titan

The Japanese anime hit plays out here on a whole new level. Do the Titans become more or less menacing as adorable gigantic babies?

Beer Surfer

Catching a wave would have completely different connotations if this was how we really surfed.

Coke Surfer

Here is the less adult version of the surfing diorama shown above. Here, you are more likely to suffer from caffeine withdrawals than a hangover.

Tanaka Tatsuya Gravestone

The Grim Reaper waits to take you to your miniature final resting place.

Tanaka Tatsuya Machu Picchu

These Incas at Machu Picchu could always stop for a quick bite to eat if they get too tired working on their impressive monument.

Tanaka Tatsuya Mountain Fold

Precariously teetering at the top of a folded mountain … one false move and the paper cut received from the slide down will be excruciating.

Tanaka Tatsuya Seven

Not sure if this one is named for the shape of the straw or for the day of the week it fell on, but ‘Seven’ brings together a couple of lovers under the cover of night.

Tanaka Tatsuya Suspension Bridge

Even in this tiny world, people will fish off of any bridge they can find. Hope none of the traffic gets too close; that looks like a significant drop.

Tanaka Tatsuya Tape Cutter

Engineering is an important part of any sized society. When you’re this small, tape can make for the perfect window material.

Tanaka Tatsuya UFO

These three will have stories to tell if they ever make it back from this alien abduction. Someone call Mulder and Scully … this seems like an X-File.

Tanaka Tatsuya Apollo

A fun depiction of the Apollo moon landing. “One small step for man…”

Tanaka Tatsuya Bottomless Swamp

There are probably few things that would be harder to escape than a bottomless swamp of peanut butter! That SUV never stood a chance.

Tanaka Tatsuya Dangerous Toilet

When you have to go, you have to go, even if you find yourself in the hot seat.

Tanaka Tatsuya Apartment

Virtual housing now available! It usually costs more to be so trendy.

Tanaka Tatsuya Lighthouse

Shady dealings happen at night, under the candle’s glowing light!

Tanaka Tatsuya Piano

Electric keyboard, or something more sinister? Mom’s about to start the lesson, but Jr. seems unsure.

Tanaka Tatsuya Pistachio

Pistachio egg pods on the surface of the moon? Maybe there is more truth to the movie “Alien” than we had originally thought.

Tanaka Tatsuya Submarine

Is this reminiscent of Sean Connery and crew on top of the Red October? Or maybe it’s Kelsey Grammar in Down Periscope? We’ll let you be the judge.

Tanaka Tatsuya Sumo

In thousands of years the regal sport of Sumo wrestling has not had a uniform change. Maybe the time has come.

Tanaka Tatsuya Sunflower

Eliza Doolittle doesn’t need to worry about the rain in Spain on this lovely sunflower-filled day.

Tanaka Tatsuya Swan Lake

The elegance of "Swan Lake" without anyone worrying about getting wet; not even the swans who are probably hoping for some real water.

Tanaka Tatsuya Tornado

This tornado looks as if it has appeared in a region that would be much more known for hurricanes. We’re really not in Kansas anymore!

Tanaka Tatsuya Waterfall

Danger abounds with unexpected clinginess in this super absorbent waterfall.

Tanaka Tatsuya Weightlifting

Keep on working, little guy, it’s going to take a lot of blood, sweat, and tears if you are ever going to look like your buff buddy over there.

The World’s Weirdest Natural Places

As humans, we often let our imagination run wild and can come back with some pretty surreal stuff that can surprise even the most well-seasoned of acid trippers. However, we can’t really compete with nature. Every now and then, we discover a new place that comes by its “could be from a Salvador Dalí painting” vibe completely naturally.

Weirdest Natural Places: Mendenhall Ice Cave

Few people actually get to see a glacier in person. Even fewer get to see a cave inside the glacier, which is typically formed by a stream of water or volcanic vents. That is what made the Mendenhall Ice Cave special. Well…that and the fact that it looked like the inside of the Fortress of Solitude.

First There Was Banksy, Then There Was Bricksy

Bricksy Mouse Banksy

Whimsical, captivating, hilarious—these are the words that have been used to describe Bricksy, the Banksy artwork recreations made entirely out of LEGO bricks. While small plastic toys aren’t the most obvious medium for re-creating street art, photographer Jeff Friesen uses Banksy’s urban artwork to inspire a more humorous, tongue-in-cheek project.
