The Princess and the Pea by Lauren Child

Lauren Child

Lauren Child is a children's writer and illustrator. I am particularly inspired by her illustrations in her retelling of The Princess and The Pea as she created each scene in a doll house before photographing them. Each room was filled with detailed furniture both hand made and bought from doll houses. I am absolutely in love with the way child manipulate scale in her illustrations using photography and miniatures- and in particular the way in which each image is blend of lifelike objects and drawings in order to create colourful and quirky images.

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Alice in Wonderland is perhaps one of the most famous examples where scale is manipulated in a novel, and has naturally gone to be explored in many film and stage adaptations. I however am particularly inspired on the way the novel explores the flipping of predatory roles when Alice is small and how it can completely familiarize ones surroundings e.g. both the Caterpillar and the Cheshire Cat looming over Alice menacingly or how she nearly drowns in her own tears.

The Royal Ballet

The Royal Ballet recently did a performance of Alice in Wonderland and I find it particularly interesting the way they tackled the changing of scale throughout the piece. They manipulated scale in several ways by having over sized or miniature furniture, several dances playing the form of the animals and trapping Alice in small sets.
