Anybody know artists that use altered scale in their works? Answered

As in where small things are big and big things are small. It's for an art project and I have to have some artist research.

The french TV channel France 2 had a series of commercials based on altered scale. Some of them are here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdUaaty96cs
I'm not sure this is what you mean, but they're funny anyway.

You're probably after an artist more than a sculptor, but Don Mueck (scroll down a bit) is described as a 'hyper-realist' artist and makes sculptures with distorted scale.

Luis Carrol, "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland" ; ) Forced perspective? Most scale art focuses on one or the other, not both in the same work. The simple reason is that trying to do both gets confusing. Do you have a specific term other than altered scale for it?
