Martin, Walter & Munoz, Paloma

A unique collaboration exists between Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz. Together, they have paired sculpture and photography to create fictional worlds that attest to the oft bewildering experience of being human.

Martin and Munoz sculpt miniature landscapes, complete with people in the midst of a variety of situations – some pleasant, some horrifying, some shocking, others just plain mysterious. They then set these pieces in water and glass – snow globes, to be precise – and allow viewers to make connections between the perilous journeys of the characters in the globe and the paths that we all have to travel in real life. A panoramic camera is then enlisted to capture these fictional landscapes in photographs that accompany each globe.
