An exhibition of Yoshinori Isogai’s DollHouse

皆スマホで撮影を楽しんでた(撮影はドンドンOKなのだった)会場の真ん中で一人の女性が「カメラを通して見るのでは無く自分の眼球で見て心に記憶するのが大事なんですよ、本当にそうなんですよ」とブツブツ呟いていて(気持ちは分かるけど、こ、怖い…眼球って…)って思ったよ。

The Making of the Shoebox House, Part 2

For the further decorations, I started by sewing two pillows. I used liquid glue on the edges again to keep the fabric from fraying after I cut it.


I sewed them together with a blanket stitch and filled them with cotton stuffing.


I tried one with the stitch on the outside and one on the inside. I’m not sure which I like better.


For September’s shelves, I folded printed paper into an origami pattern…


…to get these little cubes.


For Saturday’s shelves and the kitchen shelves, I used white cardboard from a cereal box. I glued the shelves onto the walls by tilting the box to help them stay in place easier. At this point, I also glued the beach print to the inside of the lid.


Next, I printed out several book covers at a small size.


I cut out long strips of paper measured to fit inside with my cutter and glued one stripe to the inside of each book’s front cover.


I folded the paper strip in a zig zag pattern and then added glue to the back to create the pages of the book.


With that done, I added the pillows to the beds and placed them back in the room.


Then I added the decorations, adding the side table with the pin and clock again, adding books to the shelves and putting the shell and white pawn on top.

On Saturday’s side I added the magazines, flowerpot and black pawn. With these details, I felt happy about the bedroom. That only left the lower room.

To be continued.
