An house made of dust

Non-cheese eater regine recently sent me this fabulous dust house (by Maria Adelaida Lopez). She surely knows my interest towards art project related to dust, dirt (apart duct tapes and inflatable things).

When Colombian Maria Adelaida Lopez moved to Philadelphia do a Master’s degree in art, she cleaned houses to help support herself, as she says, the way many other Marias do. Her series of Dust Houses are toy doll houses covered over in vacuum cleaner lint, representing the themes of domesticity and the other, the ideas of cleaning up after oneself and putting one’s house in order. Now an artist and educator in Miami, Lopez no longer cleans for others, but has filled vacuum cleaner bags given to her.
