About

Diorama Room, LLC was first imagined as a collaborative, immersive arts space in Austin, Texas, featuring works by artists whose practice is to explore a dialogue between human and natural realms. It is the sister organization of Haiku Flash Studios. Both are operated by Stephanie Reid, an experienced artist of over 30 years. Reid has a Masters Degree in Creative Practice with a Concentration in Digital Arts. She also studied photography, filmmaking, video, and design in undergrad. Her professional experience has been as a freelancer, arts instructor, curator, and practicing artist who has exhibited worldwide. Diorama Room is inspired by the Milwaukee Public Museum of Natural History, where the first habitat diorama was built; the House on the Rock; Joseph Cornell; Andy Goldsworthy; Wes Anderson; the Enchanted Forest and Art Outside of Austin; and Meow Wolf. The goal is to have a physical space with a garden where artists working in various mediums can create organic, surreal, and educational environments. For the time being we will exist online as a series of quarterly short film exhibitions called Tune in to GreenWe are currently a not-for-profit organization, but might eventually apply for non-profit status. Even if we don’t, hopefully we will be able to pay stipends or other awards at some point. To follow on social media visit Instagram @dioramaroomarts or Facebook @dioramaroom.natureart
