If you’ve ever wondered what happens at an agency like Wieden+Kennedy, you should take a look at their window installation ‘Real Life at Work‘. Created by graphic artist Emily Forgot and Laurie D, the black-and-white workspace made of paper and cardboard is located at their London office.
The artists collaborated with W+K’s Hello Neighbour team Karen Jane, Maya Roberts and Amy Leach. The pop-up space gives the outside world a look at the way staff at the agency work. Passers-by can watch who’s working in the window and there is also a live video feed online at Real Life WK. Emily Forgot says of the project:
I’d been wanting to get a cheese plant into my work for a while so W+K’s window proposal provided the perfect opportunity … which office doesn’t have a cheese plant! That aside, I enjoy playing with scale and pattern in my work as well making the mundane slightly surreal, so its was nice to incorporate all my aesthetic leanings into the brief. It was also fun to work with Laurie D who not only brought mechanical elements to the mix but collaborated with me on bringing the space to life.
