‘Ultra Violet Lair’ is a miniature world, an overgrown abandoned mansion that talks in charms & dreams, awaiting it’s full glory. Art, photography and music are wallflowers within this pre-loved Barbie doll house.
Recordings for now with the play button to come, an art exhibition & a coffee table book, whoa! There has & currently are delays to this project, specified within this ‘post’, however this current project is leading the authors passion back to creative styling with her head continually buzzing with ideas, my days are a full spectrum of fun with a spoonful of obsession!
Ana aka Neon Ninelives is the caretaker to this doll house, after collecting it from a council clean up from her previous next door neighbour in the inner west of Sydney. Being a hopeless romantic, Ana recalls standing at her doorstep to her house and seeing this large scale dolls house and falling instantly..
Ana’s background is a mixture of work from the chocolate box, graphics & set design for theatre, film, events & a photography studio. Finding this miniature small world made her smile wide as it’s the perfect base to build on & photograph items with ease. It’s size is about 1000 x 900 x 250mm of the main house, however the scale is approximately 3 metres now in length with the front yard and courtyard incorporated.
The main architectural feature within the doll house excluding the base structure, are choko vines dried out, found on the premises at Lucy Street in Sydney. They reflect the free flowing nature of this project and other stems of creativity coming to fruition.
