From the department of reclaimed modern ruins, artist Heather Benning took a derelict Saskatchewan farmhouse and transformed it into a life-sized version of a child's dollhouse.

While living as the Artist-in-Residence at the community of Redvers, Saskatchewan, in 2005, Benning launched on her Dollhouse project. It's a curious thing, making a house look like a full-sized version of a miniature version of itself, but Benning pulled it off with soft colors and carefully selected furniture. One wall of the farmhouse was completely removed and replaced with clear plexiglass, revealing the house's staged innards. The result is a child's plaything blown up, if not grown up.
