Themes: domestic violence, IPV, femicide, behind closed doors, isolation, conflicting exterior / internal personas, social perception, captor mentality, fear and intimidation. 


Description: This work intends to provide viewers with an intimate perspective on what home life looks like for victims and children of domestic violence. It consists of a repurposed vintage Victorian-style doll house with a classic fairy-tale exterior. All interior walls, ceilings, floors including select objects, have been covered with camouflage patterning to metaphorically simulate a war zone. Employing this visual treatment reflects on both the victim’s voice and the victim’s tyranny over them.
