self-contained world

John dilnot’s preoccupation with nature and the environment is evident in everything he creates, from his instillation work to his books, cards, screen and digital prints, and his most recent box work. the top piece “moth collection” resembles a naturalist’s specimen tray, but instead of seeing pinned and preserved insects, dilnot’s boxes are filled with his own colorful screen-printed and cut-out species.


  1. i love those boxes! we're making dioramams in my 3rd grade class and i'm working on my own little 3D box right now!

  2. i loved making dioramas in school - i'm so jealous! have fun!
