Fake For Real (2007)

The Fake For Real memory game is a collection of 60 contemporary and historical images that playfully visualises the classical theme of fake and real. Some say that in our mediated society, things we used to experience directly have all been replaced by simulations. Or are reproduction and imitation naturally part of life? The fun isn’t just in playing the memory game, but also in the surprising, slightly dissimilar images. Real or authentic fake? Realer than real? Faker than fake? The players of the game are the judge: Fake For Real!
