Designed by Bruno Munari and Giovanni Belgrano, Images of reality contains 40 cards with photographs which feature a number of subjects seen from various points of view and in several ways. A shoe, a hand, a fish or a lightbulb can look very different if we observe them from different perspectives, or if we see them as changing objects, where the name is only one of the many possible representations. Comparing realistic colour photography to black and white photography, the photographic negative and the last step of the written word (in six languages: Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese), the game stimulates the learning of the differences between real objects and their representations.
Bruno Munari (1907-1998) has been one of the protagonists of 20th-century art, design and graphics. He always dedicated his creative activity to experimentation, with a particular attention to the world of children and their games and toys. Never separating content from form and materials, what he designed were at once books, book-objects and games that would make us think. His works in the fields of painting, sculpture, design, photography and didactics cross their poetics following the path of his very personal inventiveness.
