Camera Jewel House by Tonkin Liu

Barbie loves the view of life through a camera and without. Life's a precious jewel and breathtaking to behold. Why not live inside a gem of dream house?

Camera Jewel House by Tonkin Liu


"The house is a jewel box. The jewels, whose honeycombed facades light each space, are 
objects for living; cooking, cooling, washing and storing. As night falls, the glowing jewels 
transform the micro-capillary street façade into a shadow theatre of light and movement. 

In the courtyard, over the water, the house faces south while the studio faces north. The 
two facades reflect each other, making the courtyard a space of infinite reflections. At 
dusk in the studio, the blind comes down and the pinhole camera projects an inverted 
image of the house on the back wall. Looking and being looked at become 
interchangeable." ~Tonkin Liu




Would you live in this camera & jewel lovers dream house?

Barbie would!
