Ant-Man's Antsibition

Ant-Man came to life in theatres across the UK this past Friday, but I was fortunate enough to see him come alive in a completely new (and very tiny!) way.

I will be frank when I tell you that my 600D without a specialty lens isn't really cut out for the kind of pictures this exhibition required, which means that I am not particularly happy with how they turned out. Couple that with a very bad day plus a very tiny space in which several people are trying to take pictures and it just didn't turn out like I'd hoped. But such is life!

At any rate, you can find the Antsibition buried in the Old Street tube station in London. (When you exit the tube, just turn right and right again and you'll see it on your right next to a stunning little underground flower market).

From the outside, it looks like your 10th grade biology class, but once you step inside, you're transported into art by mico artist Willard Wigan.

You have to look through the microscope to see what's underneath, many of the scenes in the eye of a needle. Here are pictures other people took of a couple of the pieces on display:

Evolution copyright A Timely Perspective.

The Last Supper copyright A Timely Perspective.

This one wasn't on display, but as an Alice devotee, I couldn't resist including it.

I read that Wigan often uses the beat of his heart to help him chisel the tiny pieces to perfection and goes into a trance like state. I mean...that is amazing. You can find more about Wigan here.

Of course, he made a special piece for Ant Man, but you'll just have to see it!
