mar cerdà


Tiny paper houses, clearly made with love, by Barcelona based artist Mar Cerdà.

Oh, and those final three are housed inside tuna cans from Portugal. So good.

    […] There’s a good reason that these dioramas remind me of movies—Mar’s training is in cinema with a specialization in art direction. This background encouraged a fascination with the treatment of space. “I firmly believe that a character can be defined by a space,” she writes, “even if is not present at all.” I agree!
