Welcome to the Dreamhouse conveys a nostalgic world where children play happily. As if unaware of the menacing and imminent darkness that has found them—or possibly only too aware—the small figures continue about their doings, masked and armed, yet seemingly unaffected.

By masking their past surface, the figurines now reveal their hollow façade.
