Literature

Julie Eakin, "Unnatural Phenomena," Architecture, October 2006, front cover (for an image of the "Camouflage View" screen from the Reford Gardens)
Benjamin Aranda & Chris Lasch, Tooling, New York, 2006, pp. 46-51

Catalogue Note

"Camouflage Screen disguises itself in plain sight.  Using laser-cut stainless steel, the surroundings are seen in the reflections but one can also see through the screen's pattern of openings.  This confusing of foreground and background is a common strategy in animal camouflage, the inspiration behind the piece.  The design is about producing a distortion wherever it is placed, indoors or outdoors."

-Benjamin Aranda

 

 

This design was initially presented as a larger permanent garden installation in Reford Gardens/Jardins de Metis in Québec in 2005.  Aranda and Lasch were recently awarded the 2007 Young Architect's Award from the Architectural League of New York.
