Today I am sharing the work of another Australian artist I discovered on my recent roadtrip, and that is the work of Naomi Ullman. When I first saw her quirky snow dome creations, I wasn't sure what to make of them. But then I looked a little closer and realised that the little building within each snow dome was constructed from old credit and store cards!
Reading through the exhibit explanation, I was fascinated to learn that these snow domes were created as a poignant, if not offbeat, commentary on the Australian "home owners' dream". Not being the kind of person who makes social commentary via art, I was quite taken by this "think outside the box" method of doing so. Who would have thought to combine the iconic snow dome with old credit cards to make a statement about social excess and ecological conservation!
