Romancing The Stone

Laminated chipboard, satellite pictures of planet Earth, deserts of Libya.

Bart Joachim laminated a series of chipboard objects with satellite pictures found on Google Earth. Images selected to look like exclusive stone. By imitating the already imitated van Uden re-imagines or self-deceit and invites us to embrace the potential of the material. In an attempt to create a timeless fairytale out of chipboard and pictures found on internet.
