We often see our homes as sanctuaries from the outside world. We try to leave our problems at the door and just make our dwellings a neat and comfortable place. Dutch Artist Frank Halmans’ was obviously bored by this syndrome thus he created the ‘Hoover Buildings’. The machines literally suck up dirt into the interior of a dollhouse. Halman has created functioning vacuum cleaners and dust busters in the shape of buildings in an attempt to show how ‘dirt and debris’ clutters our personal space.
