The Fake Dane Collection – A slowly expanding collection of objects made using a designed process, creating variable uncontrolled results..

A Design process by Jeremy Walton 2004, sourcing urban driftwood.

A slowly expanding collection of objects made using a designed process, where locally found furniture parts (urban driftwood) get used to determine variable end, out of control, results.

Each item is individually numbered. The collection is on going and the initial collection of 01 to 60 will be presented, along with conversation transcripts, at MM gallery Copenhagen in 2005. Selected items are part of the Lauritz Passion day Aution 2005.

 

 

Standing Lamps from the Fake Dane Collection. 2005

Donated chair from Ishøj, Copenhagen, 2005.

  • “Hr Larsen, what colour or colours do you feel are particularly Danish?”
  • “Blue and white.”
  • “Why and what sort of blue?”
  • “The blue of the sea in Skagen when it joins the white sky.”
  • “What sort of blue is it?”
  • “It is very bright blue.”
  • “Can you give some examples of other things that are the same blue?”
  • “It is like the blue of this pate [Leverpostej] packaging or letmælk cartons.”

Dear Hr Larsen
I have a close match to Leverpostej (pate) packaging. I have recently been to Skagen, it was grey and rained but during moments of sunshine it hinted and I can imagine the sea being blue and joining the white sky.

 

Found table from Vesterbrø Copenhagen, 2005.

  • “Fru Daugaard, what colour or colours do you feel are particularly Danish?”
  • “Brick Red like the roof tops.”
  • “That is straightforward. Are the tiles of that colour found commonly in towns all over Denmark?”
  • “It’s all over. Also provincial towns have that red brick colour.”

Dear Fru Daugaard
This looks much more red than some of the newer orange looking tiles. It is quite similar to the older weathered tiled roofs. From a distance this red might also look less red, everything looks different from a distance.
