A new Twitter account called Tiny Gallery will fill your feed with cute scenes from the world’s smallest art space. But it doesn’t use photographs to take you there.
Instead, the creator uses a combination of punctuation marks and emojis to build and paint walls, hang pieces, and populate the little place with visitors. And it’s exactly as cute as it sounds.
The Tiny Gallery comes to us courtesy of Emma Winston, and it’s apparently part of how she fills her time off from her Ph.D. studies in ukulele. And by the way, if we had it to do over again, we would absolutely become doctors of ukulele. That sounds amazing.
But the Tiny Gallery is just a day old, and it’s won us over in just eight tweets with its charm and illusion of three-dimensional space.

We think the word “tiny” has a lot to do with it. Do an online image search for “puppies,” and your day will immediately improve. But if you look for “tiny puppies,” you might need to file a police report because those little guys will steal your heart. The same goes for things that aren’t usually small, like whales, elephants, and even books.
But not tumors. Don’t even try that one.
