I know at least three artists who all keep dollhouses in their studios, and several who maintain small vignettes that they rotate from time to time. These artists rearrange the furniture and sometimes redecorate the rooms. I've tried to touch them (which admittedly is pretty rude of me) but am abruptly stopped, since they are the only one's who can touch and alter these little worlds.
Because of this, I'm quite aware of when miniatures and dollhouses enter the artists world. I found the work of this amazing photographer/sculptor, Laetitia Soulier. Her photographs are stunning and the video detailing the environment construction is amazing. Great work...yup, I'm a fan!!
