To artfully illustrate that the 2019 MINI Countryman has enough space for even the biggest adventures, the automaker challenged noted artists to create short films in their signature styles. One such film, “Camping,” came from Brooklyn, NY-based diorama duo Nix + Gerber. It’s an intricate work of art entirely created and filmed inside the trunk of the surprisingly spacious 2019 MINI Countryman.

Nix + Gerber crafted a perspective-bending intergalactic camping trip in “Camping.” Nix + Gerber’s campsite dioramas were shaped using various types of foam, wire, flock, dirt and rocks, while characters like the miniature astronauts were sculpted with a bake-able polymer clay that took three full days to set and dry.

The campaign came from the creative ensemble at agency 360i.

MINI is an independent brand of the BMW Group. In the United States, MINI USA operates as a business unit of BMW of North America.
