The project started in 2011 in response to a comment on Instagram, in which a follower wrote, ‘I want to see the miniature calendar everyday‘. Tatsuya answered by posting something daily, and realized that the project was too good for him to quit.
Posting works every single day, in itself is a challenge. And creating one that exceeds the expectation of his followers who have seen all his work brings additional challenge to the task. Eventually, Tanaka Tatsuya hopes to create an original miniature diorama doll himself. So far, he has been using ready-made dolls and rearranging them on miniature scenes.
Since starting this project, Tatsuya has developed a habit of collecting all sorts of household articles that might seem useless, such as clips for closing bread packaging, clothes tags, toilet paper rolls, ice lolly sticks and so on, because he doesn’t always know right away when or how they might be useful.
