Diorama, from Ancient Greek   ‘through that which is seen
The name Diorama Days, is a nod to the medium preceding the invention of Photography.  Invented in 1822, The Diorama consisted of translucent painted backdrops, lit in such a way as to create the illusion of a realistic landscape.

Driven by the success of The Diorama, its inventor went on to develop a way of permanently fixing light onto a surface.  Thus announcing the invention of Photography in 1839.  The new technology evolved, becoming ubiquitous across Culture & Society.
