We in The Middle Room tend to avoid the subject, as discussing works of art seldom adds to the experience. Even so, there are times we feel it necessary to take a moment and reflect on certain images and sculptures out there.

Recently, while exploring the digital realm, we came across such a work. Finding ourselves moved, we decided to share. Too few artists, in our opinion, draw inspiration from the forces of madness dwelling beyond the world we know. Fortunately, io9 has located an exception.

First and foremost, it is the scale the catches our attention. Rather than offering tentacular horrors in miniature, the artist has utilized buildings in his work, providing the observer the rare opportunity to experience the fragility of the world we've created and the lives we lead.

Indeed, it is our sincere hope that such work will inspire other artists to work at larger scales, perhaps even offering competition for Japan.
