Last saturday, Pinar&Viola participated in Eddie the Eagle museum’s last exhibition for this year. The Eddie The Eagle Museum operates as an exhibition space, a museum with a collection (either tangible or intangible) and as an independently working artist collective.
We presented the work we made for The Importance of Being Sexy, Sunny Bergman’s documentary on the mechanisms leading to confuse raunchiness with femininity and sexual approval with power. Some of the other exhibitors were Roos Menkman, Luna Maurer, Roel Wouters and Aukje Dekker, among other super talented people.
Here are some pics of the event. Plus a video of a small appearance by fire breathers.
Currently we’re tailoring the banging Go video for Diplo & Oliver Twizt. Click here to listen to the supersonic glowing song.
We recently finished a video for Anafocus which is currently shown at Vision 2011.
Here are some snapshots from the backstage. Amazing crew, love&love for everyone involved.

One half of the Pinar&Viola is now teaching at Rietveld Academy, together with Jonathan Puckey.
The assignment consists of making the first issue of the online magazine #TrendingTopic together surrounding the theme OPTIMIZE. #TrendingTopic is an online magazine about Post Internet behavior. You can’t think away The Internet anymore. You cannot create something contemporary without taking its effects into account. The Internet is no longer just a promise, it’s a fact. According to the quote above, you might not even want to use the word technology anymore to describe it. #TrendingTopic uses The Internet, technology and everything else which relates to au courant as its paintbrush.
Shout out for all the students, they did a great job for the first week. Here are some of the first research examples that they came up with.
The Steve Jobs look: Black mock turtle neck (Steve’s were specially made for him by designer Issey Miyake) + Stonewashed Levi’s 501s + grey New Balance 991 sneakers + Lunor Classic Round glasses.
Two weeks ago, we gave a workshop at ArtEz to the students of 3rd year graphic design, where we asked them to make a seamless ecstatic pattern.
Big up for all, they surprised us with their break neck speed of working. Here is a pattern done by Nils Rotgans.
