Hornet Director Andrew Myers is known for his sharp eye for detail. With this personal project involving Etsy miniatures, he proves it's due in no small part to his immaculate vision to begin with. In other words, what he's done here is taken infinitesimally intricate miniature objects found online and played with their scale in all sorts of utterly satisfying ways.
"It's basically just a project where I'm taking a simple idea, in this case miniatures found online, and I'm trying to depict them in all kinds of different styles. It's taking a subject that's relatively simple and expanding it in as many ways as possible, as a creative exercise."
Andrew Myers is a NYC-based artist and filmmaker whose work often explores the processing and output of mass information in the digital era, looking to make controlled sense of a chaotic system of images. His sensibility is delicate, and often plays with juxtaposition and humor.
Growing up in a small town in Ontario, Canada and later obtaining a BFA at Ryerson University in Toronto, he moved to the United States in 2014 and has been working in studios on set building, animation, photography, and filmmaking ever since.
His work has been published in the New Yorker, Time, Le Monde, and Wired, among others, and he has worked for a wide range of clients including Google, IBM, Hermes, Puma, Verizon, and Airbnb. He can be found most days playing around with ideas in his Brooklyn studio.
