This dollhouse is a replica of the 1872 Victorian town house in the East End of London where artist Yinka Shonibare now lives. Born in London, Shonibare spent most of his youth in Lagos, and his dual African and English cultural identity plays a large role in his work, which often takes the form of headless figures wearing the elaborate clothing of upper-class Victorians.

He first drew the cup and saucer using three-dimensional modeling software, and then he laser-scanned a well-proportioned spoon and fed the scan directly into his computer. He next applied multiple sine wave patterns along different axes through these virtual objects. You got all that?
