In this collection of small boxes whose surface and shape play an intricate and deceitful game, photos are wrapped around boxes by means of water transfer printing. The shapes of the boxes counter or coincide with the photos made by photographer Mathijs Labadie. Shiny spots and textures appear to be prints, shadows and reflections are misaligned with shape, and upon close inspection, materials prove to be nothing more than thin layers of water transfer film. The Faux Series is a research project into the finish of objects and is inspired by current developments in photography, where traditional photographic print is becoming more and more object-like and three-dimensional. The Faux Series is one of the outcomes of a Material Fellowship, that was awarded by the New Institute in 2015. For this fellowship, the designer did extensive research into the material-ness of surfaces. Other outcomes of the Material Fellowship include the initial concept and curatorial advice for the Designing the Surface exhibition in the New Institute and a collection of five essays called On the Surface for the online magazine Interwoven. This piece was designed in 2017.
