Old Barbies Become Art | Dolls Recycled Into Masterpieces

No matter what side of the fence you sit on when it comes to the great Barbie debate (is she merely a childhood doll or is she the unattainable female protégé); nearly every person of every age can appreciate this new approach to Barbie as a form of art.

Barbie made a new debut at a recent Altered Barbie recycled art show that took place in San Francisco.

Through the incorporation of Barbie into a recycled art object, the unique show celebrated the diversity of viewpoints surrounding the controversial doll, including personal image awareness and stereotypical gender rolls in society.

The Altered Barbie show featured over 75 artists and their work, which ranged from a Barbie replication of The Last Supper, to a floor-to-ceiling George Washington Barbie picture from the Goatee Nation Project.

More glimpses from the show are going to be posted weekly at on

    To answer your last question, the scary thing is, we’ve been asking each other–and we’re BOTH too scatteredly creative to get anything done. I can’t wait to see your system at work! Most of them sound reasonable and somewhat possible, but I’m confused about the Binder. Can’t quite get the picture in my head of what that would look like the details of how to put it together.Thanks for this series. If it helps you, I’ll know there’s hope for me!

  5. Hope you had a great day on your birthday!!! I wish I could also be travelling every time I grew a year older!!! Hope to see your Papua New Guinea pics soon!!!Cheers,Aadil.

  6. Adoro os produtos AQUATRESS!! Uso há 3 meses e não pretendo mudar de linha. Fui a uma loja de cosméticos comprar produtos da TANAGRA, mas a vendedora analisou meus cabelos, que são volumosos, e indicou a AQUATRESS. Fiquei na dúvida mas optei pela indicação. Não me arrependi. Me surpreendi com a linha. É maravilhosa. Uso shampoo, condicionador, o creme p/ pentear e máscara de hidratação. Em breve comprarei o Sérun. Meus cabelos que estavam ressecados, sobretudo as pontas, e com muito volume já estão mais sedoso e controlados.

  7. I’m glad she has such a relaxed but dedicated approach to her parenting style; she sounds lovely.However, I really wish the term ‘attachment parenting’ did not exist: it makes it sounds as though anyone who does not practise it is not attached to their child.

    The change of Amitriptiline levels is the biggest issue I have with this entire investigation. Going from insignificant to significant. The pathologist was very careless. Even with an exhausted sample, a suicide pick up significant right away. The change from natural causes to suicide is very flawed. I definitely believe she was murdered too.

    This book will be getting added to my reading list, thanks! There will soon be a sequel to this article about a guy that created an AR NPC that follows him when he walks around… My article will ignore the fact that he’s Asian, and the NPC he created is supposed to be his girlfriend. Guess what technology he used to create her? Kinect and AR glasses.

  29. venter vi vel bare pÃ¥ det første snøfallet, men – kanskje burde du som et alternativ til snøfreser vurdere en brukt liten ‘minitraktor’? De finnes, vett’u, og de kan pÃ¥monteres bÃ¥de plog, freser, henger som kan være til hjelp om du vil skjære egen skog, frakte materialer til/fra, tilhenger osv. Du skulle jo likevel bygge en egen carport inn i terrenget? Hva med Ã¥ gjøre den litt bredere nÃ¥r du først er i gang med gravemaskinen?

    There are trustworthy and untrustworthy people everywhere but having lived in Korea, Taiwan, the US, China and Japan I can say without hesitation that China is far and away the place where trust is rarest (and deservedly so). When I lived there I felt like I was living in a city without a soul.

    I have a small individual retirement account of about $30,000. I need to use that money on a short-term basis. I understand that I can take out the money and replace it within 60 days without penalty. My wife also has an IRA, which she can tap for 60 days without penalty. As I understand it, we can only do this once a year.
