Imagine shrinking one-eighth of the world down to just 800 square meters. A group of designers have done just that, turning the vast expanses of the Russian Federation into a 3-D, interactive ‘SimRussia’ model of the world’s largest state.
Welcome to Russia’s mini-version of the Truman Show
When day becomes night…
...with the flip of a switch
Compressing nearly 53,000 miles of railroads takes a delicate
As does planting 20,000 miniature sunflowers by hand
Because it’s the utmost attention paid to the little things
Which make the big landmarks really shine
And you gotta wonder, do they have dashcams in miniature Russia?
Yeah, they’ve definitely got dashcams
What with all the the bandits...
And bears running about
But miniature Russia really does have it all!
From remote reindeer herders in the north
To beach goers in the south
And everyone else in between
They’ve even got their own ‘5’0 foot’ woman
And really, Allison Hayes has nothing on her!
