Lady Zero Waste

Everyday we buy items, use products without thinking the trace it will leave behind. Just the fact that a plastic bottle disappears from our eye sight after 1 minute of usage, does absolutely not mean they are gone for good. In fact, plastic sticks around for between 450 – 1000 years. In less then a century hundreds of millions more tons of plastic are added to the ever-accumulating cauldron of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans, rivers and landscapes. Plastic is causing a huge environmental problem. Can we put an end to this???

Change is possible. Some visionary people are dedicated to take on a plastic-free lifestyle. One leading figure in that movement is the amazing Lauren Singer. She lives a waste free life in New York and spreads her wisdom by documenting her zero waste journey through her blog called Trash is for tossers. Lauren defines Zero Waste as “not to produce any garbage, no sending anything to landfill, no throwing anything in a trash can”. She does recycle and does compost stuff and all other trash (non-disposable, unrecyclable) she produced for 3 years was the size of a small jar!

The highlight of Lauren’s blog is the ultimate list of zero waste alternatives for everyday items, making life easier for the ones who wish to live a waste free life. She even has recipes for things like toothpaste and cleaning products.

On her blog you can learn many other ways how to reduce your trash. You can also check out her TedTalk here and this is her Instagram. Here you can find some more people that kicked plastic out of their life.

Cellphone towers disguised like trees

Discover this photo serie by Robert Voit called New Trees, 2003, based on cellphone towers disguised as trees around the globe (USA, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, UK). Ivo Branislav and Aubrey Trevor Thomes are the creators of this puzzling invention and their first physical tower, made from non-toxic plastics, appeared in Cape Town in 1996. A company called Larson Camouflage built also similar structures for style-sensitive network companies in the American Southwest.

P&V prints 4 Koché

Here you see the prints we made for Paris fashion house Koché. The collection was presented during Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2016. All the prints are made by us from scratch, every denim hole and piece of sequin is digitally placed piece by piece, creating a true work of digital craftsmanship. Afterwards, the prints were decorated with real pieces of sequin, lace and other couture ornamentation as a three-dimensional extension of the images we designed. This is where digital and craftsman couture collide, giving birth to post-digital couture, a symbiotic life form. You can access the full review and the rest of the collection from here. Click here for an interview with Christelle Kocher (the designer/creative director of the house) and Interview Magazine.

Seranit

Future Mountains is a porcelain tile collection designed by Pinar&Viola for Seranit.

For the first time in the ceramics and porcelain sector, Seranit, a leader in the industrial porcelain collaborates with an artist. Future Mountains puts an emphasis on the progression of our digital era. We selected 10 natural stones and marbles quarried in Turkey and embellished them with their highly aesthetic digital touch. In this way, we created a collection which celebrates the marriage of technology and nature, while making the beholder travel in different worlds when they are surrounded with the tiles.

“A marble is true a creation of mother nature, and nothing can replace its grandeur. However, in our times, by staying true to the progression of digital technology, we created exquisite porcelain tiles which bare the power of nature and technology in the same time.” – Pınar&Viola

You can download the catalog of this collection here

Mother Earth in Paris & MTV Ident

Pinar&Viola – Mother Earth in Paris from Pinar&Viola on Vimeo.

Pinar&Viola – MTV IDENT – Mother Earth, Who Are You from Pinar&Viola on Vimeo.

As part of ArtCOP21, the art events surrounding the ecology summit COP21, our installation Mother Earth in Paris was shown in Gleichapel Gallery in Marais. The exhibition features an installation that unveils revamped, contemporary, environmentalist messages of peace.

Through a video installation, Mother Earth reveals her grace and wisdom on a screen surrounded by prints having elements varying from Voynich Manuscript, root vegetables, peace banners, BC cave drawings of astral travels and liquid and sensual Mother Earth. With this eclectic choice of imagery, we show that the more we are driven by technology, the more we strive for knowledge and for the recognition of the sacredness of nature.

As we recently pledged in our Artist Statement, we’ll be devoting our work in creating highly aesthetic, charismatic activisms which will offer irresistible invitations for a more truthful and humane future. Mother in Paris is the first work we created after this altruistic pledge. Hereby the thorough interview we gave to Dazed about Mother Earth.

Later on, for MTV, as their ident, we created special extracts of our Mother Earth in Paris video, with custom wisdom quotes given by the Mother Goddess, where the Mother Earth catches your gaze and asks you “Who are you when no body is watching you”.

Most of the images come from www.MuslimManga.org. The Goal of Muslim Manga is to shed light on Muslims through the form of manga: “We think that this is an effective way to attract the attention of our own young Muslim brothers and sisters so they have more pride and confidence in their religion through seeing main characters and individuals who share the same belief as them. This form of story telling is also a good way to attract non-Muslims and give them a better representation of who Muslims are and what we are like”.
