Doing some dioramas based around cliches. A cliché is a phrase or expression that has been used so often that it has become trite or unoriginal. Clichés are often used in literature, speech, and other forms of communication as a way to convey a common idea or sentiment quickly and easily, but they can also make writing or speech feel uninspired and lazy. Examples of common clichés include “the ball is in your court,” “adding insult to injury,” and “the elephant in the room.”

Not taking a long time on these and using basic objects in the diorama.

The above is the cliche “There’s more fish in the sea.” It’s used to tell someone whose relationship has ended that there are many other people that they could have a relationship with. Example: “Don’t cry over Pierre – there are plenty more fish in the sea!”

So many great cliches that can be visualized by dioramas. My next one is “The elephant in the room” meaning there is an obvious problem or difficult situation that people do not want to talk about.  

All done for humor and social satire.
