In Miniature

How Small Things Illuminate the World

Simon Garfield

Whether an architect’s 1:1000 site model envisioning a mile-wide build site, a toy spaceship inspiring a career in astrophysics or a general’s relief map enabling measured tactical calculations, small-scale objects serve as a powerful tool to conceptualize their full-sized counterparts. This study explores how hobbyists and professionals use the miniature to celebrate and render comprehensible things that would otherwise be overwhelming.
