Zap, Not being smart or anything, but I use the ‘P’ word, because quite simply that is what it is. I think it is as true for good replicas as it is for bad ones. I find I have a severe mental conflict over the fact that the German Pavillion in Barcalona is a replica of the original. The word pastiche indicates for me that the past is in someway being recreated in a visual sense.
