We love YiTing Cheng's Secret Stash, an update on hiding valuables inside everyday objects. Watch above as she hides credit cards in stacks of paper, money rolls in lampshades, keys in orange juice, and, most impressively, passwords in mirrors.
A drawer disguised as plywood laminate opens with the use of a magnetic London souvenir, kept on the desk.
More from YiTing:
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'.
A few more shots after the jump, but see it all in the video above.
