Barbie Trashes Her Dreamhouse By Artist Carrie M. Becker (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

When Mattel first unveiled Barbie's Dreamhouse in 1960, turning the pristine mansion into a hoarder's paradise probably wasn't what they had in mind.

But with Barbie's endless wardrobe and accessories thanks to her numerous career changes, it's no surprise that the blonde bombshell struggles with clutter.

Using 1/6 scale miniatures, notes Jezebel, artist Carrie M. Becker's handmade artwork marries the doll's overconsumption lifestyle with a hoarder's reality.

In the bizarre photo series entitled, 'Barbie Trashes Her Dreamhouse', the images are so detailed, tiny and incredibly disgusting, they could pass for ruined human sized rooms, adds Babble.

Not surprisingly the artist told the Huffington Post she was inspired by the hit series 'Hoarders' and 'How Clean Is Your House?'.

But the purpose of Becker's creation is to serve as a mirror, not a judgement.

"For me, this series is about creating a small, but perfect world where the viewer cannot distinguish between what is reality and what is fiction," says Becker.

This isn't the first time Barbie's unsustainable lifestyle has been dragged into the spotlight. Last year, architect students were invited to compete in a Mattel competition to design the most environmentally friendly dreamhouse for the famed doll.
