MYSTERIOUS TINY ROOMS BY MARC GIAI-MINIET
French artist Marc Giai-Miniet (Born in 1946 in Trappes) makes some of the most incredibly detailed (and disturbing!) dollhouses that we’ve ever seen. Marc started creating these disturbing shadowbox dioramas rather late in his career, recurring themes include libraries, furnaces, laboratories, submarines and intestine-like tubing in lonely, decaying spaces.

Have you been there, Ross? I’m glad they’ve not altered it too much inside but they seem to be a little confused on their recent revamp – there are lava lamps on each table and the back room and toilet have been questionably wallpapered to look ‘groovy’… The woman that served us last time we went was really friendly and chatty and we had ice cream sundaes and knickerbocker glories. They still serve cups of Bovril. Bloody great! It’s still a family business, as far as I’m aware.
The Battersea one was running as an Italian restaurant, with 60s frontage, up until at least ten years ago but has since changed hands. The Sunderland branch was demolished, along with the rest of that block of shops. The one in Seaburn has long since gone too.
"Every really good creative person…whom I have ever known has always had two noticeable characteristics. First, there was no subject under the sun in which he could not easily get interested — from, say, Egyptian burial customs to modern art. Every facet of life had fascination for him. Second, he was an extensive browser in all sorts of fields of information. For it is with the advertising man as with the cow: no browsing, no milk."
