Why not close the window at night?


If you happen to come across the obscure Flickr photostream of why.not? , you will likely be asking yourself the question “why?” more often than “why not?” The builder seems to specialize in very obviously giving his builds a message, but more often than not, the message is hard to pin down. His latest creation is a nighttime scene of a room with an open window. This scene captures the ambiance of fresh night air so well that I can almost feel the cool breeze. It is actually so beautifully mundane that I can not help but relax and go to sleep now… Wait, nope, there are some chains on the floor and I have no idea what they are there for. No sleep tonight.

The build itself seems quite simple, with a cute city skyline in forced perspective as the background, using different shades of yellow as windows with a bit of variation, making for quite a realistic effect. I also really like the moon, built with a round tile and a white rubber band around it that gives a glowing effect. The room has a few interesting details as well, especially the little marbles on the table, which seem to be made of either levers or antennas . The handles on the windows and the door are a great idea too, using pearl gold minifig arms to achieve a very classy look.
