This is one of three 3D printed architectural and cultural models from scans of actual structures combined with a bunch of artifical flowers by Brit Bunkley in this exhibition.

“The Happiest place on earth” is based the Sleeping Beauty Castle at the centre of Disneyland in California, which in turn is based on the late-19th century Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany.

Cast in a dark grey plastic as a facade with ragged edges and stuffed with a bunch of black flowers it comes across as an errie romantic ruin in miniature.

Bunkley’s series of abject sculptures are works about nature vs culture, nature out of culture and reminders of the darker side of the transcience of culture. More >>
