Paris, the Taj Mahal, Venice, the Vatican…
All these monuments and many more have replicas scattered around the
globe. Not just simple copies, these constructions are mirrors in which a
certain image of the world is reflected.
THE REAL THING is a journey into a copy of our world. Seeking the
monumental copycat architecture of China and other countries around the
world. Residential areas where people live an everyday life in places
simulating other places.
