Thomas Demand

0 Love It
In his solo debut with Marks, Demand continues his trompe l'oeil trickery, presenting photographs of supposedly real places that are in fact shots of sets, painstakingly constructed by the artist out of paper and cardboard. There's one here, for instance, of the control room at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi power plant following last year’s tsunami and earthquake. Demand, however, is also upping his game by offering a stop-motion-animated video that relies on his patented technique. The subject is the travails of a cruise ship caught in a storm at sea, as captured by the surveillance camera in the vessel's café.
