Reality TV is all the rage, so why not "reality" wall coverings? Carl Robinson unearths authenticity in Atmosphere, a series of 32 multipiece trompe l'eoil murals that explore the limits of dimensionality. Water-based inks produce photographic effects on nonwoven, low- VOC substrates. The 18-inch-wide panels are then treated to a washable acrylic finish. Delorme, a 12-by-9-foot image composed of eight panels, simulates peeling paint. The same distressed demeanor adorns Delancey, whose six panels re-create a faded sign 9 feet wide and 6 feet high. The atmosphere is industrial in Dartmouth, a 12-by-9-foot mural-created with eight panels-that depicts gears and cogs. Typewriter keys recall low-tech times in Dorrington, whose four panels form a 6-by-9-foot image. 800-238-9152; seabrookwallpaper.com.
