Coincidentally, after posting my last entry about dollhouses, I stumbled across these photos of an abandoned farmhouse in Saskatchewan, Canada. Canadian artist Heather Benning tranformed this scary house into a life-sized dollhouse a couple of years ago.
The back of the house has plexiglass walls to create the doll-house view. I really like Benning's choice of pastel wall colours and 60's style furniture.
This is a very cool concept but I don't think I would be brave enough to live so exposed on a cold and windy Saskatchewan night.
Of course, the house was never intended to be lived in. The art installation will be left intact until the house becomes unsafe.
Photos were found courtesy of Rusted Mustard blog and more about the doll-house story can be found here.
