‘1:12 Scale’ explores our need to feel a sense of control and escapism through a typological study of miniature chairs, alluding to the vastness and popularity that is the world of miniatures. Measuring at one twelfth of a regular size, the chairs represent an escape from reality. Miniatures offer a retreat from the surrounding world and allow you to immerse yourself in a constructed reality that belongs solely to you. The creation of these small worlds generates an illusion of control and allows one to escape the chaos of the real world. This control is mirrored through the typological approach taken to this work, presenting each miniature exactly the same I allowed myself to experience a similar sense of escapism.
