The Hoover Buildings by Frank Halmans come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but what they have in common is their actual connection to a vacuum cleaning mechanism [5]. There are small handheld buildings wrapped around a mini vacuum and even a tall building that resembles an apartment complex with a hose protruding from one end of it.

Once attached to the cleaning pipe, the hoover buildings suck up dirt and debris, which lies amid the miniature doll house furnishings [6] like clutter in a crowded home. There are desks and drawers lying open, all of which establish an oblique perspective of our own homes in miniature.
