Broken Houses

— by

The Broken Houses project by Tel Aviv-based artist Ofra Lapid is an impressive series of small, precise scale models of destroyed houses. Lapid says to base her “mock-ups of destruction” on photographs of abandoned structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather.

“I find these photos on the web while pursuing an amateur photographer from North Dakota who obsessively documents the decaying process of these houses. His photographs are used to create small scale models. Afterward, in the studio, the models are photographed again, omitted from their background and placed in gray.”
