A scale model landscape of a village with a text on the wall with adhesive vinyl. The landscape is made of styrofoam with german scale models (size H0). Three small houses (standard scale model) and one high-rise made of the same parts as the small houses. A text describing how the former ‘beautiful’ view is now obstructed by the high-rise.
