Neat, but kind of sad to me. Looks like it could have been fixed up to be a really nice place to live instead.

I'm sorry, that is clearly a miniaturized giant's house.

Sheesh, this is the sort of bullshiat-apeak that makes me sick of these so-called "artists".

It's a cool looking "dollhouse". In the middle of nowhere. So frickin' what?

This is the equivalent of McDonald's throwing away their cheeseburgers because they've been on the warming rack for an hour

Where do these "artists" get the cash to do this?

Guess it's kind of a cool idea, but really all she did fix was the shiat-hole up. Not exactly some elaborate project. As far as labor and materials, it's not much different then what a person would do fixing up an old building, except for the opening up of the one side for visibility.

/Maybe it's just me, kind of in a "Meh" mood today. Too much to do today and no desire/energy to do it.

Probably got am Arts Canada grant to do this or something. Good for her, it's kind of cool. We can't all be useful.

An abandoned farm? Turned into a dollhouse? That's just a horror movie waiting to happen.

- "I can hear the dolls, Daddy?"
- "What are they saying, sweetie?"
- "They're... squealing... like pigs... like pigs being slaughtered."
- "Oh my god!"
- "They're saying the evil's here... it's come back!"
- "Wait... quiet, honey... I think there's something behiaaaAAAAAAAARHRHRRHGHGRGHF!!!

Oh sure, it's clever and charming until they kidnap some handsome young man, cut off his genitals, and force him to be the "Ken" doll.

I doubt that all the rooms originally went from one side of the house to the other. And likely, there used to be a bathroom in the house. There probably didn't used to be missing walls on one side of the house, either. So, there seems to have been (likely) a bit more remodeling than simply "fixing up an old building."

The defining characteristic of a dollhouse is that it's small. A "giant" dollhouse is just a house...

Yes, this is just a house. W/o a bathroom.

stuhayes2010: Where do these "artists" get the cash to do this?


From their rich parents, legacies, wills, etc. The few "artists" I know are actually rich kids who at 30+ years old are still on their parents dime (though they'd never admit it).

All of your criticisms are valid becau--- ZOMG a rainbow in the 4th pickie-pic!!!
 
2012-06-14 11:23:38 AM
So by "turned into a giant dollhouse," you mean "ripped off an entire outside wall."

My site-specific installations rely on surrounding landscape and architecture to create a mise-en-scene for the viewer, thus making the works a multi-sensoral experience.

When you have to use BS to describe what you do, it means you don't actually do anything.

P.S. My farts are a multi-sensoral experience.

They get grants. Look, once you get around the pretentious "multi-sensoral experience" language, it's pretty cool. Probably some rich dude backed it, because it's cool and may actually make money too. Or they're the sort of rich that backs unusual things because they're bored.

Artsy girls are at least creative, thinking types as opposed to the herds of moose waiting in the drive-thru lane for greasy burgers. No I don't have to make sense thank you very much

We will get a followup on this when some missing runaway's body is found in the house dressed up like a doll.

There's a disturbing amount of mid-beam bending in that house.

You could also see it as a parody of "real estate speak," as in, if the ad calls it "a charming/cozy doll house!" You know it's going to be a dump in the middle of nowhere (or a really bad neighborhood).

What to do with a mobile (in this case, tablet) browser? Redirect it to the homepage for no good reason whatsoever, apparently. Idiots.
