Artist creates eerie miniature world out of moss only 5cm in diameter

A multimedia artist from Chile has created an eerie miniature version of a planet made from moss with stunning time-lapse footage orbiting the tiny world.

The artist behind the pocket-sized planet, Philip Klawitter, described the piece as: "an artwork about the creation of micro-planets, captured using hacked equipment to show an expanded reality."

The piece was grown inside a custom incubator.

His artistic style has been cited as: "[It] plays with the fact that as observers of nature, we only perceive a microscopic fraction of what is really out there.

"Our senses have a physical end, but reality has almost no limit.

"It continues in fractal patterns to dimensions we can't even imagine."

This footage was produced on June 3, 2017.
