It’s like a scene from every ‘weird things happen to main characters on conveniently deserted suburban neighborhoods’ movie I’ve ever seen. Only this is not a movie set, it’s a diorama where miniature street lamps illuminate incredibly real looking, eerie streets that lead to nowhere other than the edge of the box they’re trapped in.
Glitched is a series of tiny worlds of imperfection, where everything is not as it seems. Artist, Mathieu Schmitt prints his models using 3D files that have been corrupted. In Glitched #1 – Surburban House, “The house is a 3D print of a 3D file having been corrupted. The original file of a classic suburban house has been forced to go through several stages of interpretation of the data, passing through various voluntarily inappropriate software, causing data corruption.”
Check out the scenes for yourself and see what you can uncover.
