Superfictions:

Visual artworks which use fiction and appropriation to mirror organisations ( The Museum of Jurassic Technology and The Museum of Contemporary Ideas), business structures (The Bank of Oklahoma PLC, SERVAAS, Tecnotest SRL etc) and the lives of invented individuals (Klusian Philosophy, Olive, Dr Peter Ameisenhaufen) often in a trompe l'oeil way. Many of the fictions created are oxymorons, such as the museums of Jurassic Technology and of Contemporary Ideas.


Superfictions is also known as Simulationism, Fictive Realism, Les Trompes (from the French trompe l'oeil ) and Tokyo Mirror Boys.
