Kirstin Barrett

These illustrative dioramas and accompanying prints are inspired by the local live action role-play (or LARP) group Fools and Heroes where participants, including Kirstin, create and perform as their own fantasy characters. Character design is her motivation for recreating LARP events in this way; as though the performance is on a stage. The prints surrounding the dioramas show the close-encounters characters have with each other as their stories progress. The people represented are based on actual designs from Fools and Heroes, and the use of mixed media and collage conveys the excitement and childlike creativity LARP brings to its participants.
