MIKE KAGEE FOR WORLD FASHION TRENDS
Lachapelle's LANDSCAPE exhibition represents the globally
networked industrial infrastructure of oil production

aesthetic distracts from the dangers of the function.
Both bodies use handcrafted scale models, constructed
of cardboard and a vast array of recycled materials.
