How did this place get so filthy? Maybe we're inside one of Frank Halmans's tiny homes. This Dutch artist built functional vacuum cleaners that suck dirt into houses and apartments with dollhouse scale furniture inside. Andrea writes:
his series of functioning vacuums which he has transformed into 'works of architecture' - representing our households and personal space - emphasize this theme, blurring the line between the interior and exterior. here, halman has taken an appliance which we use to clean and de-clutter our dwellings and has modified its role. instead now, dirt and the debris is purposely sucked into the domestic interior, within these imagined dwellings, standing as a metaphor for the things which we experience and collect mentally in our memory and physically in our lives.
