Should you happen to live in a city, you have but to invoke the magic syllable Yopp to bring your miniature to realization. By virtue of your ambulatory and augmented peregrinations within the built environment, you dérive a city in miniature — your city — every day.
But should you wish to model your experience, the signs do not discriminate as to material. Legos are a bit over-memed at the moment but retain a pleasing functional modularity. Alternatively, you might prefer the flexibility of Jell-O, thus modeling necessary forces and flows as well as structures. Or you may forgo the hipster materials and just build normal little models — say, 895,000 of them — with patience, adhesiveness and an unbreakable belief in virtual futures.
But any model is only as relevant as its demonstrated or implied inhabitation. Your miniature would not be a city without miniature people. Slinkachu’s tiny residents and tourists, lacking a city of their own, can be discovered here and there in our own cities attempting to fend for themselves. Help them! Invite these goodly model creatures into your brave new miniature world.
Of course if all this seems like too much work, you can always go virtual and tilt-shift the documentation.
