A shower curtain, a towel and a mat are all printed with simulated pictures of the spectacular natural sceneries. It’s common to find those objects at shops, at restaurants or even at your home. The intention of people who print a sea picture on a curtain is obvious - they want to take shower next to the sea. However, the image that they choose is not the real sea, but the simulation of it. So basically people copy the “Copy of the sea” and paste it on their bathroom so as to project their ideal life - a simulated perfection. To me, those objects are the typical examples which demonstrate the underlying irony of human desire to the perfection which only exists in the simulated world and also a confusion of what reality is in the digital age.
