SIMULACRA was shot in the „Window of the World“ Entertainment Park in Shenzhen (China) which presents 140 copies of the world’s most famous tourist attractions. A tour through the park simulates a journey around the world: the Gizeh Pyramids, Stonehenge, the Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls, the Taj Mahal, etc. Each model’s size appears to relate to its touristic importance. European and American sights dominate the Asian, African, and Oceanian ones. What do these iconic sites mean when they are taken out of their original contexts?
