The Dollhouse Project is a small-scale depiction of the way in which interiors reflect the details of our lives. Our detritus - the pictures we surround ourselves with, the decorative items we bring into our homes - is evidence of a sort of narrative, telling the story of the lives lived within the confines of four walls. The Dollhouse Project will be on display at the Home (re)Cycled show, giving viewers to the opportunity to discover the story of the home’s absent occupant.

Vintage Shadowboxes, handmade in 1946 and measuring just 10” by 5”, have been repurposed with small scenes of domestic life assembled from old photos and books. Viewers will look through the glass as though through a window, gaining a glimpse into a scene of former lives.
