The theme of Foam Magazine #15 is 'Construct' and features six portfolios with work that shows an alternate reality that has been constructed by the artists. In these constructed images there is a tension between fantasy and reality for the viewer. He or she is seduced into an active kind of viewing. The respresentation is first deconstructed in order that it can be mentally reconstructed once again, following the example of the original maker. It is here that the core of the artist's presence lies and the confrontation with the work becomes above all a meeting with its maker.
