Still lifes, but not as we know them, instead of careful arrangements, these pieces show everyday scenes that we usually ignore. Would you label them as ‘art’ or ‘design’? By shifting focus from the curated and sublime to the ordinary and disregarded, Janne Schimmel questions the status of products: what happens when the context becomes the product? The scenes come from casual snapshots of the designer’s life: a heap of branches in the park, a dead bird on the street, his table top after a day’s work. His 3D-scanner and printer allow him to reproduce them as hollow structures with a plastic ‘veneer of reality’. The lamp inside highlights the result: a tribute to the mundane.“We unconsciously create still lifes all day”
