In their efforts to represent the physical conditions of a product's lifecycle, test facilities create a strange version of reality - a kind of pragmatic, mechanical, magic realism.

“Scenes” is a series of computer visualisations of a product testing facility. Based loosely on imagined test scenarios for the projects in the exhibition, the scenes explore the abstract and unworldly stagecraft of test facilities.
