Wave 1 2014

barbie dolls

Annette Thas is a Belgian-born, Australian-based artist. She made this for the 2014 Sculpture By The Sea event and crafted from over 3,000 barbie dolls, collected from various second-hand shops. This is a symbol of the personal stories of every dolls former owner. The free standing barbie doll wave sculpture is over 12 feet wide, and was inspired by her memories of childhood. This giant sculpture took the People's Choice Award at the event. 

I made a wave with plastic forks and spoons, and my sculpture reminded me of her work.
