Sohei Nishino's large-scale dioramas are the result of an elaborate, time-consuming process. Each diorama map is dedicated to one city and is comprised of thousands of exposures. In collaboration with the artist, Goliga has created a complement of formats to experience these diorama maps in different ways: Live installations in different cities, an interactive website, and a limited-edition mini-portfolio, which can be purchased through the microsite.

The four individual cities in this project are Amsterdam, London, Paris, and Tokyo. Participants can choose to purchase a collection of 10 of these prints, which are delivered in a hand-made custom box. Each of the prints are unique. As prints from the diorama maps are selected and sold, they are removed from the map and no longer available. By taking away parts of the map, the project participants will help to complete the large endeavor of this edition, which is to distribute one diorama map amongst many different individuals. Each person will possess one part of a whole, all of who are dwellers in a larger city, occupying their own small part of a city.

Each edition comes in a numbered and signed box that includes a Poster of the diorama map, a booklet about the making of the diorama map, and a signed Colophon.
