The message about the size of buildings in Washington DC that expresses
power----and "borrows" power by using Greek and Roman style suggested the
following question to me: Is there any way to express power by using
smallness as the "messenger?" Marcia

Audio speakers, camera, computers, telephones,

Superrealistic or intricate works: tiny sculptures and carvings, miniature
paintings, Tintoretto landscapes
Someone out there must be an expert on minatures. We marvel at the beautiful
examples under the microscope at the National High Magnetic Field Labratory.
Mike Davidsons has found that creators of the first microchips created
signature arts on them without knowing that we would one day be able to look
at these tiny digital artworks. He has found amazing things on the
motherboards and microchips. Check out the National High Magenetic Field
Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida.(NHMFL) Mike Davidson also is the creator
of microscapes, artworks make from microscopic images. Some look like
landscapes and other are simply beautiful patterns that have been used on
calendars, ties, fabrics, etc.
What other tiny wonders have people found.
