Secret Stash – Hiding Items in UnSuspecting Areas

Now this is fantastic! I love the idea of “Secret Stash” taking the advantage of daily items to hide objects and items in plain sight. This is like modern James Bond secret areas, you can hide your other passport, cash, secret documents in furniture and daily use items. I have always wanted to have a secret storage area, or a hidden wall or room, something of that nature to have in my house but these pieces of furniture in the video are fantastic.

This project is about concealing valuables, secrets, bad habits and personal information in our workplaces. Here, hidden spaces/ messages were created within 8 general objects such as wood boards, lamps and disposable coffee cups. We make judgments based mainly on our experiences and what we see. This dependency on visual information can create large blind spots. Thus, usual stereotypes of how we perceive solid, transparency and lighting are employed in this project to play with notions of ‘solid and void’, and ‘true and false’.
