Y’all know I love me some rainbows, but I also have a quiet obsession with tiny things. Like doll house accessories and newborns. Does anyone else remember those little toy cars you could pull backward and send whizzing out of the room (or off the coffee table or back of the couch, depending on where your imaginary racetrack began)? Those were my favorite.
David T. Waller’s Toy Atlas Rainbow, a painstaking installation made from over 2,500 toy cars, won the People’s Award at the UK’s Arts Open Depot in 2010. I assume this is because the exhibit makes every spectator want to crawl around it and drool.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to eat a jar of sprinkles.
