“Show Room” investigates the idealized living spaces created in condo presentations centres, designed devoid of the textures of everyday living. There is no dirt, grime, wear or tear— presentation centres stretch just enough reality around a simple structure to make it feel plausible. They are made for cut-out version of people rather than actual bodies. Everyday living becomes concealed. Housing market machinations and construction processes are camouflaged by the artifice of images of imagined living. “Show Room” uses a mix of familiar forms, skewed renderings, and semi-concealed materials to play with camouflage, artifice and superficiality, investigating the prepackaged visions of “lifestyle” and “home” that come to the surface in condo marketing.
