Wow.
With nearly a decade of experience working as a maze illustrator for Japanese fashion magazine POPYE followed by another decade working in architecture, artist Takanori Aiba combines the two disciplines in spectacular fashion with these labyrinthine Bonsai Tree Houses. Each one has their own unique character, but they all share the same sprawling architecture, intricate details, and whimsical tone when greeted by the eye. Made from craft paper, plastic, plaster, acrylic resin, paint, and other materials, Aiba molds each delicate feature around the natural curves of the Bonsai Tree that serves as the foundation. I almost wish I could shrink and explore these miniature havens more closely, but I'll settle for the next best thing and watch some Miyazaki movies ;)

I just saw Steven Johnson give the keynote at Blackboard World 2011, and was impressed.
