You've seen how abandoned buildings are taken over by vines and spiderwebs and can look really creepy? Daniele Del Nero recreates that feeling in miniature with his buildings covered in natural mold.
Grown over several days, the mould used to create these stunning models then dies after two weeks leaving a layer of dust akin to a spider’s web which gives the miniature houses their creepy and mesmerising look. “I’ve always been fascinated by old ruined buildings,” says Del Nero, in an interview. “We are used to imagining our cities as permanent and definitive, but it’s amazing how little time it takes for nature to reclaim its spaces.”
