Inspired by the work of Edward Hopper, YI Artists created shoebox dioramas based on childhood memories of places in their pasts. Some took the project literally and created a room or a moment exactly as it was from the past. Others worked more abstractly, capturing emotions through color, shape, and placement to convey specific memories.
