Chameleons, commandos, Transformers, and high school freshmen all blend in with their surroundings for survival. In Germany the idea of Urban Camouflage deals with our relationship to urban space. Inspired by the ghillie suit — the military camouflage that makes you look like Swamp Thing — the artist stalked a local Ikea in suits made from paper, cardboard boxes, and those crappy yellow bags that you have no option but to buy, even though your home closet is full of them.
