'Deception By Design'
Artists and the military might seem strange bedfellows, but painters, sculptors, photographers and set designers have played a critical but little-known role in modern warfare. Despite resistance and often ridicule, artists were recruited in both the first and second world wars to devise ways to protect troops and deceive the enemy by using their artistic skills and intimate knowledge of perspective, illusion, shadow and movement.

Inspired by nature and influenced by the modernist movements of their day, camoufleurs created bizarre decoys, dummy tanks and elaborate sets to conceal military installations.

Now, the race is on for the ultimate in camouflage, invisibility, and artists are again the frame. Using rarely seen archive, interviews with leading experts and arresting visual graphics, this quirky and fascinating documentary reveals the untold story of the art of deception in war.
