MINIATURE PANORAMA HOMES, FURNISHES WITH DOMESTIC ARTICLES AND RESIDENT INHABITANTS... THE DOLLHOUSE The world in the dollhouse, we all play different everyone creates it, to his/her own desire One creates his future goals, the other a nostalgic dream everyday reality or pure fantasy. Time, will never be stopped, won’t be ticking for a moment you may even decide when the sun comes up In a dollhouse you can, everything is possible it won’t convict itself by age, language or even looks. There is only place for peace, no worries about wealth no diseases and no war, no fear for violence Perhaps this is why... children are so addicted They can make they own fantasies come true… (Based on a poem of Nancy Valentina)

DARKSOME VOLUME 1 : THE PERFECT WORLD


this isn’t happiness by JASON LANGER


W OULD YOU ACCEPT FREE SANDWICHES FROM DARKSOME? As a little girl (or perhaps even a little boy) you play with dolls, but when you do who to you play? Darksome tells a story about the perfect world, but is the world so perfect? As a little kid you want your Barbie to have the perfect hair, clothes and shoes. But when you translate that the kid wants that for herself. The world is so shitty that they make us believe these things are necessary to be part of the community. If you’re only a slightly different they will let you know. In this plastic fantastic world not only will your boobs be fake, your surrounds will follow. Only is being perfect the best solution, as they say; the fake world is a lonely place!

ITSY BITSY SPIDER

The itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout. Down came the rain, and washed the spider out. Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain, and the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.

IDCTBB in by AMAI RODRIGUEZ


IN SEARCH OF THE YOUNG WIZARD “I have invited our little seamstress to take her thread and needle and sew our two mouths together. I have asked the village blacksmith to forge golden chains to tie our ankles together. I have gathered all the gay ribbons in the world to wind around and around and around and around and around and around again around our two waists. I have arranged with the coiffeur for your hair to be made to grow into mine and my hair to be made to grow into yours. I have persuaded (not without briber y) the world’s most famous Eskimo sealing-wax maker to perform the delicate operation of sealing us together so that I am warm in your depths, but though we hunt for him all night and though we hear various reports of his existence we can never find the young wizard who is able so they say to graft the soul of a girl to the soul of her lover so that not even the sharp scissors of the Fates can ever sever them apart.”

ARE YOU STILL PLAYFUL OR HAVE YOU LOST IT? Kids love to play and they will do it everywhere. This is the most important subject of growing up. The kid will develop his brain by playing and experimenting with the environment. A lot of artists look for inspiration in a child or go back to their childhood to find their playfulness and go back to being fearless and worry-free. Using an object in a different way, so it will create something innovative. When you achieve that, you will see a whole new meaning to an object or artwork. Experimenting has always been important, it bring us closer to achieving better ways to connect with nature, the humanbing, animals and the world. So get you playfulness on and create...

PLAYING HOUSE VOLUME 3 : THE HAPPY WORLD


dresses in the sun by GREGOIRE PHILDHIS


ARE YOU INVITED TO THE PARTY OR WILL YOU BE THE DIRECTOR? Playing ‘house’ is a universal activity for children. Even boys will play house if they aren’t teased about it. The allure of playing house is because of the people! Your child’s dolls and stuffed animals are her family and friends; and, you’re invited too. Family is the most precious possession a humanbing can have. They can build and relay on them. And that is exactly how a child thinks. In the growing up stage a child needs his parents the most, they give the child warmth, guidance and teach the most important things in life. When a child is playing ‘house’ he always plays it in the most perfect way. Everyone in the family is included; mommy, daddy, brother, baby and not to forget grandma and grandpa. This usually was the household, the whole family together, sitting in front of the fireplace, knitting socks and telling stories. Sitting down and having equal time for each other. Having time to relax and enjoy time with family. What is left? We want it back!!
