Hide Your Valuables in Plain Sight...

WOW, these are great ideas for the paranoid and urban spies alike... Check out the video below to see the designs by YiTing Cheng that create clever hiding places within plain sight.
"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... How? Utilize stereotypes and visual camouflage. 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'."

Pretty cool... I have to question where someone has to work and the people they call their friends to which one has to resort in hiding 'things' within their office like this. Although cleverly thought out, one has to wonder what coworkers will think when they see that same glass of OJ on your desk for a week straight..! lol
