The Impostor Lecture – New York, New York

For his now infamous appearance at Core77’s Offsite event, Design, Wit, and the Creative Act, Tobias Wong sent an impostor (Rama Chorpash) in his place and sat in the audience to enjoy the show. To their credit, Wong and Chorpash rehearsed extensively, ensuring that both the lecture and Q&A were accurate and true to the spirit of Tobi’s practice. Treating the whole event as a legitimate project, the pair never broke character even during the subsequent post-event cocktail party.

Thoroughly in keeping with Wong’s irreverent design style and the shows theme of wit in design, this performance was the best of both worlds – offering viewers an informative, well composed lecture and an original work by the artist they’d come to see.
