Two Artists Create Miniature World Where Snails Are The Main Actors

Creative duo Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland hold onto an essential aspect of childhood — play. The miniatures the duo creates are so intricate in detail that if it wasn't for the mammoth snails that occupy them, you'd believe they were real. There is something intensely satisfying about watching a creature trail slime over the roof of a miniature car, or sit, tentacle eyes swaying, on the top of a skateboard. "I like to think of snails as tiny puppies with shells", Aleia comments. "I love seeing how they will interact with a set. We put cucumber juice on certain objects, but we cannot wield a snail to do something. We make a scene and hope they are interested in what is around them."
