Fault 01, a piece composed of sand and tinted glass, toys with our conception of landscapes. Like Escape’s other flat work, Fault 02, the piece takes a more direct approach to the genre, re-pinning it to the wall. It would be a mistake, however, to suggest that the piece is less dramatically innovative then the rest of the line of furniture: With these flatworks Mastrangelo shifts our perspective 90 degrees, giving us a bird’s eye view of landscape; and by casting sand over and around tinted glass, he creates an unmatched sense of depth, conveying the worlds that lie both above and beneath the water’s surface.
