Presidency by Thomas Demand

Do not be fooled! The photograph above is not of the Oval Office but of a 1:1 scale model of the Oval Office made out of paper and card. Thomas Demand, a Berlin-based artist, meticulously constructs spaces out of paper and card and then purposely photographs them to look real. The true nature of the image only starts to appear under intense scrutiny.

Demand is currently exhibiting a photograph in the 'This is Sculpture' exhibition at the Tate Liverpool and is well worth a gander.
