Behind these glass peep holes are Patrick Jacobs’s meticulously constructed 3D dioramas from “vellum, acrylic, gel medium, polyurethane, extruded styrene, hair, ash…” — portals to near-real rolling fields and mushroom clusters. Seriously, good thing these holes aren’t large enough for visitors to try to climb through, away from the cold and into the grass forever […]
