Aleia Murawski & Sam Copeland

Welcome to Slimetown

Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland are artists who create miniature sets that are often populated by their pet snails. Their dreamlike and playful imagery evoke the melodrama of daily life: a snail moving out of an apartment with one last box to move; two snails sharing their first kiss over a taco; and in this series created for the Chicago Athletic Association hotel, a snail trailing through a small-town carnival alone at night.

Aleia and Sam released their first book Snail World: Life in the Slimelight, a collection of snapshots created over the past 6 years.  Snail World is published by Broccoli Magazine and is available at
