Finsrud City is an art project in scale 1:87 made by the artist Reidar Finsrud.
The world's most compact H0 design, which gives the illusion of being a major facility using mirror manipulation and perspective processing.
The purpose of this art project is to see how realistic one can make a model system using mirrors, perspective tricks, colors, lights and an authentic sound image.
During the construction of the plant, it was interesting and exciting to study in what was possible and not possible. Pretty much everything in the build-up is discarded and replaced at least 3 times. That is how the artistic development over time has given this result, now presented as Finsrud City. The idea is that in the future, this city will live its "own life" where new people and events take place, both represented by thousands of figures (most with motion mechanics), but digital events can also take place.
