Domestic Islands is a set of transformative objects that work together to create an immersive interior space. The set is made up of 6 component parts that all play with the idea of a ‘staycation’, or holidaying at home, using techniques of faking, fooling and copying. The project questions the importance of authenticity in architecture, design and space and casts a shadow back on our staged reality, a construct built with fake parts. Domestic Islands is a reproduced environment, that copies the idea of ubiquitous holiday resorts the world over. By taking their clichéd imagery and amplifying it the project becomes a copy of a copy. This website then allows its visitors to download all necessary plans and models, enabling yet further reproductions with an infinite possibility of replication.
