A Tea Set For The Screen By Louisa Zahareas


Designer Louisa Zahareas‘ surrealist tea set, titled ‘Screen Mutations‘, appears decidedly off-kilter when viewed in reality. Take another look through the screen of a Skype session, and the tableware looks normal. To reinvent a key family ritual for the age of digital communication, the designer worked with computational geometry expert, Dianne Hansford, who employed the technique of forced perspective in the creation of her surrealist porcelain pieces. Says Zaharea of the idea behind the project, “I wanted it to be humorous and light, but at the same time point to a real issue. How far are we willing to go to distort physical reality with how we are presenting ourselves on the web?”
