People Make Places
We are inviting 1000s of global citizens to consider their own sense of place by creating a small matchbox size diorama expressing what they wish to share with the world about where they live. To date we have collected over 3000 individual’s dioramas from Melbourne, Sydney, Shanghai, Deniliquin, Mosman, Venice, London, Berlin, Edinburgh, Dubai, Adelaide, Cannes, Amsterdam, Paris, Lane Cove and Brisbane. We have personally collected each matchbox at rendezvous, pop-ups and meet ups we have had across the globe. Locals have shared with us and fellow residents what they have created before we have added each matchbox to our portrait of their region. The outcome is a series of mixed media portraits interpreting and celebrating these places through the diverse perspectives of local residents.

We aspire to include diverse rural and urban regions across all continents in this project.
