vasily klyukin imagines a new york run, not by a politician, but a cultural icon that has inhabited the homes and hearts of people across the globe: barbie. the famous female figure is envisioned as the big apple’s new mayor, renaming the island ‘barbiehattan’ and re-configuring the master plan of the city. hot pink-painted images of the city’s skyline and pictures of popular attractions like wall street, times square and the statue of liberty are colorized to suit the barbie-themed urban landscape. klyukin collaborated with artists andrei sharov and sergey romanov to create the digital visualizations, not intended as a practical application, but as a playful and humorous reinterpretation of city life.
