Ok so not sure why this has been coined a Barbie and Ken “Dream House.” But maybe others see it? this reconstructed 1960′s life-sized “doll house” is located North Dakota. The idea behind turning this shack into a Dollhouse comes from Heather Benning this structure is just one of many large-scale art installations Benning has constructed. This project took about 6 months to complete starting in 2008. The farm-house had been abandoned since 1968. Which is so strange considering it had just been built. The artist tore off one entire side of the house, re-plastered and painted the walls, installed lighting and 50’s retro furnishings, then replaced the tore side of the house with Plexiglas so people can see inside. Pretty creepy. I don’t know this house looks a little scary to be a Barbie house. Though the idea is quite nice.
