Based on the Short Stories of Etgar Keret, $9.99 is a stop motion animated feature directed by Tatia Rosenthal. It tells the story of unemployed 28 year old Dave Peck who buys a book on the meaning of life. In his struggle to share his find with the world, Dave's surreal path crosses with those of his unusual neighbors.
It looks great, I just hope it gets released here in the UK. link

I recently came across German artist Evol. Evols buildings project takes street objects and transforms them into model buildings by sticking printed transparent paper over them. My favorites are where miniture graffiti has been included at the buildings bases. more can be seen here.
This turntable is made entirely of paper. To play the record the handle needs to be turned in a clockwise direction at a steady 331/3rpm. The paper cone then acts as a pickup, amplifying the sound enough to make it audible. link

Lori Nix is an artist who bends the line between truth and illusion in her photographs. She accomplishes this by photographing miniatures and models which illuminate her interest in the disaster movies of the 1970s and her memories of growing up in Kansas. link
