Hoarder Barbie's grim non-reality is explored by St. Louis-based artist Carrie M Becker in a clever series of photographs titled “Barbie Trashes Her Dreamhouse.” In an effort to "represent a more 'current' view of Barbie's lifestyle," Becker meticulously constructed and photographed a series of 10 miniature domestic hoarding scenes populated overrun by 1/6 scale doll accessories and teeny-tiny handmade items. Becker's disorienting and insanely detailed dioramas — living room, dining room, kitchen, hallway, bathroom, bedroom, teenager’s bedroom, home office, laundry room, and a display of post-hoard cleanup — appear to be just as terrifying/depressing as the real deal.
