The flat, erronous perspective of the buildings at the bottom of this piece bugs me a lot, but this is an amazing work of art regardless.

This is amazing, but...
Am I the only one who noticed that all the people are naked or am I the only one who's kinda surprised... o.o

This is really awesome! I have a lot of respect for the painstaking dedication, what with all the details and how much stuff is going on. Fantastic work!

This is truly brilliant and took unimaginable discipline and focus. It makes me sad that it hasn't got the attention that it deserves. No one has done this before, you may be ahead of your time. I love that standing back from it, it appears to be a kind of desolate landscape, but looking closely you see that everyone is naked, and that really adds to the surreal factor that starts with the never-ending void of houses and the fading off into nothingness. Your work is showing a lot of maturity and is growing into something completely different than what it was. I am excited to see where it will go next.

every house and yard different. I feel slightly voyeuristic. Such a feeling of desolation, how we choose to live is a wonder. The piece reminds me of a photo I saw years ago of an apartment building that had been hit by a tornado. It tore off one wall and left all the rest intact. In the photo you could look inside and see how each apartment was set up. Why do we choose little boxes to box ourselves in?
