Chantel Foretich makes small-scale constructions referencing real and literary places - many are animated with electric motors or music-box mechanisms.  Works include shrunken versions of swimming pools, doctor's offices, cubicles, and bedrooms, all of which build onto each other and into larger landscapes.
