Miniature Calendar

Miniature Calendar is an online exhibition in calendar form, created by artist Tatsuya Tanaka, whose work Miniature Life continually asks questions such as: what if this stalk of broccoli were a tree? These leaves floating on the surface of water, boats? Presented online as a daily calendar, Tanaka's photographs show mostly figures arranged diorama-style surrounded by everyday objects. As an example, the Aug. 1, 2021 photo creates a restaurant scene from dominos, whose black dots represent burners on which tiny figures cook food. To see the evolution of Tanaka's style, visitors can explore the Archive, which dates back to April 2011. A two-minute video embedded in the "About" section provides a look into Tanaka's studio, including the drawers of cataloged objects the artist employs and the 3D printing used to create new ones. There are also links to physical exhibitions of Tanaka's Miniature Life (click "Exhibition") and merchandise such as books, puzzles, T-shirts, and of course, printed calendars (click "Product").
