In his The Little People Project, artist Slinkachu creates incredible street side installations. This project, which started in 2006, features a series of miniature train set figurines and props which are left on the street as a form of social commentary. This commentary is made clearer in the titled photographs the artist produces.
“The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works”.
