The Wonderfully “Strange Worlds” of Matthew Albanese

Matthew Albanese had me fooled. Mind you it I’m easily aroused duped.

The 26-year old artist creates the most spectacular realistic-looking landscapes through the use of clever photography and everyday objects. The miniature models contain an astonishing amount of detail. Consider my jaw dropped. Check out some of his “Strange Worlds” series after the jump.


Sugarland

This miniature landscape is made out of 20 pounds of sugar, jello, and corn syrup.

Fields, After the Storm

In this model the fields are recreated with faux fur, the clouds are made of cotton, and sifted tile grout forms the mountains.

Paprika Mars

This is made using 12 pounds paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, chili powder, and charcoal.

Breaking Point

The fiery volcano is made out of tile grout, cotton, phosphorous ink. It was then illuminated from within by light bulbs.

Burning Room

This model is made of wood, nylon, plexiglass, and dollhouse furniture.
