From the imitation game and the uncanny valley to con artistry, trickery and scams, artifice makes the world go round - but perhaps all is not as it seems.
With a magician's flourish and a smooth sleight of hand, Counterfeit Culture unveils the agony and the ecstasy of the unreal. Can you spot the fake? And does it matter?
