MIKE KAGEE FOR WORLD FASHION TRENDS

Lachapelle's LANDSCAPE exhibition represents the globally 
networked industrial infrastructure of oil production 
and distribution.The gas stations and refineries 
that populate iconic locations are staged as architectural
avatars. The building's dazzling spectacle and retro-future
aesthetic distracts from the dangers of the function.
Both bodies use handcrafted scale models, constructed
of cardboard and a vast array of recycled materials.
