Architectural Vacuums by Frank Halmans

Dutch artist Frank Halmans creates hybrid vacuum cleaners that transforms the interior cavities of these machines into miniature houses inspired by mid-century architecture. The sculptures highlights a meeting between two object worlds, blurring the line between the interior and exterior. Andrea of designboom writes, "Halman has taken an appliance which we use to clean and de-clutter our dwellings and has modified its role. Dirt and the debris is purposely sucked into the domestic interior, within these imagined dwellings, standing as a metaphor for the things which we experience and collect mentally in our memory and physically in our lives "
