For the first time since September I've actually added a few images to my "Old World" project that I was so busy with before having them on display at this year's Culture Fest in Staffanstorp in September. There were a few "leftover" shots from the visit to the Katrinetorp Christmas Market and the park next door that I covered in last week's blog post, that I figured I'd give the Old World treatment in Analog Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro.
Another thing that I've taken a picture or two of is of course the tiny little tourist attraction in Malmö that so many media outlets around the world have covered already. The mouse store and restaurant that seemed to have popped out of nowhere, without anyone knowing who the artists are.
What I like about this (other than that it's still there and not destroyed by some idiot) is the way it makes people react when they see it. When I was there there was a small group of people looking at it, smiling and taking pictures. There was a shared experience of this art piece in a way that I haven't seen before, and I definitely enjoyed that...other than of course the amazing detail work on the piece, down to miniature signs on the store door what credit cards it accepts!
Since it "opened" or rather appeared, a lot of extra pieces have been added to it, like tiny posters as well as the group of toys holding up protest signs next door in a demonstration for a fossil free world etc, and the cargo pallet (also mouse sized) full of cheese that was just delivered to the restaurant.
A few hours after I took the photos below someone had added a tiny bus stop sign, declaring it to be a stop on the 146 bus line...so now the mice have a nice and easy way to get to the store and restaurant! ;-)
