I was initially drawn to dioramas found in Natural History museums, because of the dramatic tension between illusion and representation, the fake and the real, truth and fiction. The animals are lifelike, realistic, set in meticulously constructed idyllic environments, realities frozen in time, and most likely, already altered by now. It was later on, while reading their individual stories, that I understood that there was a sub text, what one sees when reading between the lines.
