Mapping the Field is a series of research projects using mapping processes: typical for the car industry to produce fake wooden car interiors, hydro tranfer printing can also be applied to create standard patterns like carbon or marble. On show at Glasgow and Genève are spheres in aluminium and stainless steel, which give the illusion of slightly deformed textures ”questionning industrial processes and our perception of objects and materials. The impression of materials such as marble, wood and carbon are presented as a contemporary ‘Trompe l’oeil’ when applied to the surface of a series of Rovero’s objects.”
