inspire :: dollhouse


Found via @kickpleat from the Canadian Design Resource

Using an abandoned house a few kilometers from Sinclair, Manitoba, Heather Benning creates a life sized dollhouse in the Canadian prairies.

Heather spent two summers turning the house into an art installation - cleaning, re-plastering walls, painting, buying, setting up - as part of her project as artist in residence at Redvers, Saskatchewan.


One side of the house is left open and replaced with a clear plexi glass for people to peek in like a "real" dollhouse. Heather has created a home in which the family that lived there had left it unaffected back in 1968 including a wall clock resting at 9:03.
