MINIATURIZATION: Making elements of the artwork smaller, as in size, weight, amount or volume. When this reduction occurs in an artwork, the work undergoes a change of character that usually intrigues the viewer and pulls them into a diminutive world.

“In these works, I examine our relationship with technology, referring to the differences between habit and ritual. Habit, I see as an activity or device used to reduce one’s consciousness of an event or thing, whereas ritual is one that increases awareness and allows a non-verbal perception of them.” – Doug Buis
