didier faustino: doppelgänger

franco-portuguese conceptualist didier faustino has created the new work ‘doppelgänger’ for designer’s days 2011 in paris. designed for two people, this white mask fuses conjoined parts to create a sort of prosthesis for a mirror kiss. the object pivots the heads of those who put it on, seeming to maintain a hygienist’s distance and yet revealing a link:  mouths meet through a hole in the middle, enabling users to make contact with their alter egos.

‘doppelgänger’ is featured in the windows of the lafayette maison in paris until june 20, 2011.

  • believe me this is not success – it is not succesful to waste material nor time – especially other peoples time – the comments reflect the stench of failure – if you think narrow minded internet chitter chatter is a success then you are not correct
