installation & video installation

The series “Faith in Fakes” has been ongoing since 2005, exploring the boundaries between the fake and the real to reflect on the unusual phenomenon from which is derived by the rapid development of Macao. Presently, there are nine pieces of artwork in this series.

“This is the reason for this journey into hyper-reality, in search of instances where the imagination demands the real thing and, to attain it, must fabricate the absolute fake; where the boundaries between game and illusion are blurred.”

from “Travels in Hyper-Reality, Faith in Fakes” by Umberto Eco
