Work in progress
There’s something here – I’m not sure what yet, but the awfulness of these dolls (their design, colour, body shape and permanent make-up etc) is going to be used to create some kind of suspended installation.
I’m currently concentrating on their heads – I like the slightly macabre feel of the doll’s eyes looking at you as the heads rotate on their strings but the bodies deserve to be used too. Just as a note of interest – before their redesign last year, the shape of a Barbie doll’s body was such that, if real, she wouldn’t be able to walk…
NB. Please contact me if you have any Barbie, Sindy, Disney, Bratz or other dolls that you don’t want any more. I’m happy to have ones with missing legs, feet, adapted hairstyles etc that might not sell so well on Ebay..!
