Thomas Demand

Thomas Demand alters perception in his photography and three-dimensional models. These look like real images of rooms, often sites that we recognise and hold social or political meanings to, but they are not real. Each model is made out of paper and cardboard to replicate those spaces. Photography was used as a part of the process to record these constructions, but now Demand creates work for the sole purpose of photographing them, altering our sense of reality. Demand uses a large format camera to capture these images and destroys the ‘life-size environments’ once this has been done, so that we never truly see the size of the room created.
