As a pop-up structure, The Fakery was designed to hack and blend into different environments, to appear and disappear in different venues, corporate and non-corporate as well as public spaces in various cities and locations.
“Who are you today?” The space blanket is sizzling, distorting the mirrored surfaces of its surrounding. “Name, Surname, Desired Occupation” all there is needed to start your next chapter.
Visitors will be invited to envision “who they always wanted to be” – a desired occupation they never got to embody.
