... makes me think of plagiarism, like the fancy Lacoste Polo-shirt from the last holiday in Tunisia or the cheap iPhone from the China market
in Poland. Still, we are not just faking for economical reasons. The communicative matters are much more intriguing: In the novel
"The Great Gatsby" from F. Scott Fitzgerald the stranded protagonist uses the property of others to brag in front of a crowd that he wishes to attract. This story highlights a sense of ownership that enables the character to receive attention. Within the field of jewellery, a commodity that serves as pure adornment, FAKE is often found where imitation of form and material are common. “Not all that glitters is gold”. The question of truth comes to mind. Especially in the appearance of the self and others, FAKE is an everlasting game between perception and mind. But how does it look like, when vanity takes form? This thought is also reflected in my contributed works: The core of these objects consists of moulded components, placed into a bra, as to optimise form and size of the breasts. The moulded forms are created with CAD-modeling (Computer Aided Design), printed on nylon. Emphasising the appearance of different surfaces, it is a common technique particularly used in the automotive industry, but also in various art and design contexts."
