Allergic to
modern life

For our Dazed&Confused column we investigated the sci-fi extremes of electromagnetic sensitivity:

1047637
An EHS statement piece

We, Pinar & Viola, just like the rest of our generation, consume and produce on the internet. Our laptops are the extension of our hands. We can work anywhere as long as we have our laptops and a fast connection (you can keep track of us on Instagram here).

But it seems the times we used the internet as a means of escape are over. Instead, more often than not, we’re trying to escape the internet. As an artist duo, we are kind of internet-tired: no more browser buttons in our work. This probably has to do with the mainstreaming, and subsequent overkill, of post-internet aesthetics. We feel like closing our digital windows; we’re longing to touch the real-life earth with our bare feet, leaving our phones in airplane mode. But what if that’s not enough to discharge ourselves?

EHS symptoms range from acute headaches, skin burning, muscle twitches, chronic fatigue and other 21st century malaises

Imagine a day when you develop an allergy towards the internet, your iPhone, or even worse, your brand new Galaxy S4. Imagine that data-roaming and scrolling through Instagram makes your skin itch, while tweeting leaves a metallic taste in your mouth. With red, irritated eyes, you find yourself changing your FB status: “Electromagnetic hypersensitive.”

Electromagnetic bathing
Electromagnetic hypersensitivity sounds like a futuristic nightmare but, for a group of people, it is a RL status. Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) might be a new malady or maybe an up-to-date, hypochondriac conspiracy theory. What many of us don’t realise, though, is that the radiation we’ve been exposed to over the last ten years has been hundreds, even thousands, of times higher than in our pre-wireless age.
Scientists agree that electromagnetic fields are dangerous at high levels, but it’s kind of agreed that the low levels emitted from our devices are safe. However, institutions like the National Cancer Institute now acknowledge that more research regarding our recent “electromagnetic bathing” is needed.
Electromagnetic fields, like o.a. GSM and wi-fi, cause electromagnetic hyper-sensitives a wild range of symptoms. According to sufferers, EHS symptoms range from acute headaches, skin burning, muscle twitches, chronic fatigue and other 21st century malaises. It’s a fascinating, electro-phobic cocktail of anxiety and science-fiction spookiness.

As “normal people”, we don’t realize that our society is actually an electro-dictatorship where it is impossible to escape from man-made radiation

To date, EHS has gained little acceptance from the medical and scientific community. As there is no specific medical test for it, all EHS sufferers are self-diagnosed. Nevertheless, the number of people around the world claiming to have EHS is growing. Similarly, research into this controversial condition is increasing and EHS charities are fighting to get the surreal malaise officially recognized. Sweden is the only country where EHS is recognized as a valid medical condition, while the rest of the scientific world laughs or waits for more evidence.

But just because there’s no evidence (yet) doesn’t guarantee that something doesn’t exist. Plus, these kinds of weird, sociological phenomena can be very intriguing. Plumbing through blogs, we dug into this modern folklore-meets-conspiracy theory. What we discovered was electrifying!

The survival methods of electromagnetic hypersensitives are bizarrely thrilling. As “normal people”, we don’t realize that our society is actually an electro-dictatorship where it is impossible to escape from man-made radiation. Electromagnetic emissions, known to EHS suffers as electrosmog, are beaming at us from every corner: radiation, 24/7.

EHS sufferers are only safe in a reclusive rural life, in tech-free fortresses where it is impossible for electrosmog to creep in. It’s sad, but the most extreme EHS sufferers claim to have no choice but to live in a Farady Cage.
For desperate electromagnetic hypersensitives, their condition demands creative solutions. Some EHS solutions resembles a neo form of Art Brut. They look like visionary creations, reflections of our own excessive lives and paranoia. Cool, pure silver relieves wifi-burn the best. Their inventions are harsh and drastic, with an obscure poetry.

The shielded lives of EHS victims are extreme extrapolations of the influence that technology exerts on our lives

Lightning-proof fashion
Many EH sensitives dress with an uncalculated, atypical sophistication, their aim to bounce the radiation right off. EHS fashion is dramatic and evocative; forceful looks of oversized spy-wear couture. In their outfits, the mystical and the militant blend seamlessly, their layers of futuristic monochrome silver tones powerful enough to knock out submarine radar. Outfits are finished with EHS accessories like silver plated beanies, foil-lined brain coats and grounding gloves. SS13’s metallic trend fades next to the utility statement pieces of the electromagnetic hypersensitive.
All electromagnetic (EM) protective fashion, with a shielding effectiveness of 99.99%, is made out of high-tech textile with fine weavings of silver wire. Crafty EHS sufferers weave metres of EM-shielding fabric into wifi-proof curtains and bed-cages. On several websites you can find many more EHS products: computer and cellphone shields, shielding paints, foil-lined wallpaper, earthling products, radiation detectors, educational kits… The list goes on.

Technological ignorance
The shielded lives of EHS victims are extreme extrapolations of the influence that technology exerts on our lives. In their wifi-free minds, they merge the philosophical with the factual (some, for instance, believe that PCs literally fry your brain). It’s obvious that electromagnetic hypersensitives are eccentric, but their bizarre theories reflect on our common future: their self-diagnosis is an amplified version of the stress we face with our ‘always on’ lifestyles.

E-cig sensations 99% harmless

For our DazedDigital column we wrote an article about the aeshetics of e-cigs and their post-net vibes

1043095

Coffee, ice-coffee, Internet, honey and sambal are the first things which pop up in my mind when I’m asked about my addictions. I don’t consider myself as an addiction sensitive person. This is confirmed by the fact that I am an occasional smoker for over 10 years. A cigarette, with a drink in my hand, is my delightful sin, my casual revenge against “good sense”. It’s Saturday and tonight, I won’t smoke, I will vape.

While writing this article, I’m vaping an electronic cigarette. The ‘e’ in front of ‘cigarette’ is caused by the virtue of writing this article. Finally I bought one, it’s two years ago that e-cigarettes made it to our inspiration folder. As our eyes are focused to find paradoxical, twisted and ambiguous matters, it did not take much time for these battery powered healthy cigarettes to grab our attention. We noticed that e-cigs are being dissed as counterfeit ciggies but cancer sticks simply aren’t the future, in the twenty-first century we better serve our addictions in a healthy way.
As artists, we are obsessed with the future and genuinely attracted to visionary technology. We’re always looking for high-tech implications in all different places. What especially excites us is the technological liberation of the user, in this case the smoker.

We find expelling the (e-)cigarette too simplistic, smoking is part of humanity. Since ancient times, people do smoke in one form or the other. Also, state restrictions of personal habits have always freaked us out and prohibitions always made things only more fascinating. E-cigarettes allowed smokers to keep smoking their nicotine but this time without tar and 40 other evils. Currently, most medical professionals rate e-cigarettes as 99% harmless. So we can say that technology updated the old cigarette and made the damages smoking caused disappear.
Medically and morally, Smokers have longtime been demonized. In spite, or due to that, I frequently found smokers very sexy. It excites me to see an attractive smoker sensually inhaling his/her dangerous smoke while he/she knows that the cigarette is self-destructive. I find it exciting how smokers are taking risks for short lasting pleasures and satisfactions. Smokers provoke, break rules and they reveal an alluring human weakness. While smoking, they, at least the pretty ones, look naughty and decadent with a dreamy intellectual touch.
I don’t want to be nostalgic, thus I would like to go beyond the dark attraction of unhealthy smoking and move on to the safe plastic glow stick. E-cigarettes, their shiny steel tubes and LED lights, have their own cybernetic charisma. I also find it so powerful how an e-cigarette can transform a no into a yes: they don’t stink up your breath, brown your teeth, wrinkle your skin nor do they kill you. Their appeal is functional instead of romantic, perfectly in sync with our current obsessions with efficiency.

What about their artistic functions? Electronic cigs fit with cutting-edge dandies, post-internet aesthetics, tight and healthy bodies and other contemporary sensualities. They have a certain renewed sensation, a robotic one that combines the attraction of machinery with the notorious, inherently sexy, oral fixation. I like the sensation of the clean technological water-vapor around my face. It’s sexy and smart how the e-cigs separated the addictive part, the nicotine, and vanished the destructive parts like smoke and tar.
Some people consider an e-cigarette as the wimpy counterfeit of a cigarette but an e-cig has its own controversial and paradoxical badness. It’s ‘evil’ how the e-cig, disguised in a steal jacked of high tech luxury, continue the vaper’s nicotine addiction. But let’s be honest, bad habits are not only evil, they’re functional, they provide us with inspiration.
I would like vaping to become more innovative. Although I have sympathy for the artificial and mimical look of the current e-cig, I still find them too heavy and plastic. I want my personal vaporizer to be unique, light-weight and easy adjustable with my mood and style choices of the day.
Besides the possibility to choose between flavored e-juice like menthol, marlboro, organic piña colada or bubblegum, I would like to be able to optimize my nicotine hit with anti-wrinkle vitamins and teeth-bleaching breath refreshers. When I exhale, I would like the color of the vapor, aka my new hydrating face mist, to display my mood. This way the problem of anti-smoking fanatics with e-cigarettes “re-normalising smoking“, would also be solved. Meanwhile, I’ll stay an occasional smoker and an incidental vaper, waiting for the next big e-cig update.

New project: My secret assistant

My Secret Assistant is created during the Liquid Journalism think-tank organized by Mediafonds in 2013. We were teamed up with Geertjan Lassche, a Dutch reporter and documentary maker, to find contemporary solutions for journalism.
My Secret Assistant is a smartphone application which discretely keeps the connection between you and your network warm and alive. This project is a critical proposal for the future of journalism.

Why we need to have My Secret Assistant
We are the generation where the meaning of friendship and acquaintance is defined by social media. We flirt on our Facebook accounts, follow with Twitter, socialize and share pictures with Instagram and connect through LinkedIn. While this organic network grows bigger every day, it also gets more and more difficult and time consuming for us to keep all our personal contacts alive.

We’re simply too busy to feed our relations with information. The result: business contacts slowly fade away and we miss professional network opportunities for our future. What we need is an assistant!
This smart application, hidden in our phone, which time-to-time reminds you of your A-list business contacts, takes topics / actualities of the day and morphs them into personalized emails or messages for you to send to your most valuable business contacts.

How does it work
Through accurate inputs and filters, easy to use interface, the user can start a connection through news and media events that are custom prepared and adapted for each person. This service would never send a message without your consent, as we know how dear your network is for you. And the app bares a fantastic toll which prevents the receiver of your messages sees it as junk mail.
My Secret Assistant, it’s a secret between you and us.

Square ‘em all

A selection of app logos which tried hard to fit it all in a square

Now, everyone who owns an iphone or any smart phone are just spoiled with all the smartness of the apps that is contained within. There is an app for almost everything, be it photo filters, music scanner, e-book, recipes, newspapers from all over the world, games, texting, video calls, fitness program and so on. However, have you noticed? The tiny little logos that fill up the walls of your mobile phones are squares with rounded corners? Can you imagine how much devotion has been put into turning all sorts of subjects, objects or activities into these little symbols? Even the fundamentally rounded basketball is transformed into a litte square. How much further can we go?

A conspiracy theory

Are we the only one who had to think of Gloria, the artwork Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla presented at Venice Biennale, after hearing the terrorist attack at the Boston marathon? Art inspiring reality is a given, but this time we cannot not speculate that it inspired evil.
All our prays are with the marathon attack victims and their families.

Gangster disciples, their Jewish swag and Rick Ross

For the April issue of our column at Dazed & Confused, we put the emerging Jewish symbolism in hip hop and the Rick Ross issue under scope. The question still remains: Did the star of David get rap’s biggest rapper shot?

pinarviola-gangster-disciples-rick-ross-1

In the recent months, we have all been entertained with shivers down our spines by the worst kept secret in the rap world, the dispute between Rick Ross and the Chicago-based gang the Gangster Disciples. On October 29th, GD released a YouTube threat for Rick Ross, concerning the Star of David on his mixtape. After that, on 28th January 2013, Mr. Ross crashed his Rolls Royce after another vehicle fired shots at him as he drove home from his birthday party at the famed Miami nightclub LIV. As expected, this shooting alluded to Hebrew-fanatic gang Gangster Disciples, flaunting their sense of humour by shooting him on his birthday. On the other hand, according to reports allegedly “dozens” of rounds were fired at Ross’s car in the drive-by which made 50 Cent speculate that Rick Ross staged his own shooting. Meanwhile, we were bewildered by this Jewish swag which has been the centre of this gangster gossip.

pinarviola-gangster-disciples-rick-ross-2

Hip hop and occult visual imagery is like caviar and vodka: a classic. Especially the speculative masonic Illuminati looks of our favourite Givenchy boys, Jay-Z & Mr. West. Writing an opinion about a subject which is a combination of Jewish symbolism, street gangs, African-Americans and hip hop, while not having a background in any of them and getting away with it is not easy, but the question remains… Why on earth would a street gang associate itself with Judaism? And why is the Star of David the go-to rap symbol of choice?

Folk Nation is an alliance of street gangs based in Chicago and Gangster Disciples is its strongest sub-gang – also one of the most violent gangs in the USA. It is estimated to have over 600,000 members worldwide. The gang uses the Star of David, a pitchfork, 360, GD (their initials) and number 74 (the places of their initials G and D in the alphabet) as their symbol and they are known for carrying a black flag (bandana). Allegedly, the Star of David in the GD pays respect to David ‘King David’ Barksdale who was the original leader of multiple Folk Nation gangs among Gangster Disciples. The letters on the points of the star stand for Love, Life, Loyalty, Understanding, Knowledge and Wisdom.

pinarviola-gangster-disciples-rick-ross-10

pinarviola-gangster-disciples-rick-ross-12

The video that Gangster Disciples uploaded on Youtube showing their feelings towards Rick Ross about the Star of David on the cover of his mixtape, The Black Bar Mitzvah, has a history. It has been said that Rick Ross disrespected GD for dropping the name of their leader Larry Hoover in the song “B.M.F.” as a street swag booster which made him millions, as well as for using the Star of David (which is the gang’s major symbol) on the cover of his mixtape, The Black Bar Mitzvah.

The gangster gossip surrounding Rick Ross’ marketing strategies stretches to world-renowned cocaine king-pin Freeway Ricky Ross. First named ‘Teflon’, the Miami MC Rick Ross is currently being sued by Freeway Ricky Ross for using his name.

After the shooting in January, the ex-correction officer Rick Ross is currently being protected by actual police force. It can’t be fun to be Rick Ross right now.

Optical Illusion Selfies

Optical Illusion Selfies is a work we did in collaboration with OKFocus. We made a special edition set of webcam filters as part of Overlayer.

Our Overlays are inspired by trompe-l’oeil, a classical painting technique that creates optical illusions. Trompe-l’oeils were popular among Baroque artists. The paintings deceived the viewer’s senses while the artists playfully explored the boundaries between image and reality on their canvas. As Pinar&Viola, our canvas is the internet and the web shows that, today the boundaries of image and reality, the actual and the virtual, are blurred away.

A special section of internet’s images are results of everyday digital gestures like a self-portrait, in netspeak labeled as a ‘selfie’. These self-aware selfies are our daily optical illusions that deceive the senses of our Facebook friends. Our profile pictures reveal, as much as they hide, our persona. Our tromple-l’oeil webcam Overlays are digitally crafted devotions of these carefully constructed acts of self-design. These illusionary sceneries are heavily inspired by digital folklore imagery like desktop wallpapers, GIF animations and fantasy web art.

Go to Overlayer.com and turn into a bright blue waterfall, a swamp oracle, a sadomasochistic fire spitting demon and more. The transformative pixels are only one click away, please share your selfies with us!!!

MRRY XMAS, meet my desktop stripper

Merry Christmas everyone!
We have a solution for those who feel lonely in the holiday season, desktop strippers. We met them during our research for The Importance of being Sexy, the XXX website we designed, like a year ago. They were popping up in the right cover of your screen while browsing in adult sites. Yet, recently we ran into their larger-than-life versions that we could download and have them parade in between our photoshop layers.
