Young designer American Brad Ascalon has designed ‘The Dream,’ an installation presented at the New York Design Week 2012. A reflection on codes and symbols of American life, between success and life in the suburbs. The house, although his property bounded by pristine white picket fences, a dream for most Americans. Brad Ascalon here decides to literally bend the fence, until completely reversed, reinforced by the high contrast black / white. This installation was part of the Gallery R’ Pure exhibit that had ten renowned US artists reexamine symbols that are part of the American mythos.
