Doll houses covered in dust

Artist Maria A Lopez created her "dust houses" for her Masters in art in Philadelphia -- cardboard dolls' houses covered in vacuum cleaner dust.

Childhood memories mixed with the stories of others gave context to the project. Houses that represent the "American dream".
Generations that lived and inhabited the space but only their dust is left to see. Dust as a witness of the living. Only memory.

The pieces are doll houses covered with vacuum cleaner dust. The architecture of the houses is carefully selected to match them with familiar urban landscapes.
