We designed a holographic catwalk

Our studio designed the world’s first holographic catwalk for a virtual fashion line, all showcased on a real model, during Amsterdam Fashion week in July 2016. With this technology, we mimicked what Google’s Magic Leap will make us experience in the upcoming years. As for the future of fashion, we believe that people buy, throw, and mistreat their clothing because we do not feel connected with the inanimate objects around us. That is the reason why, with this catwalk experience, we made people emphasise with their clothing the way they do with their friends, where we visualised the spirit of the clothing.

Through animism, we gave life to the fashion line of Amber Slooten by adding facial characteristics like mouths and eyes and interactions between the dress and the model. You can find more information about this project on our interview in The Creators Project, and watch the making off of the hologram here.

Pinar&Viola for IKEA

IKEA commissioned Pınar&Viola to create a collection of prints under their name, to go on a wide variety of IKEA products, as a part of their Limited Print Collection. On 8th of June, during Democratic Design Days in IKEA Headquarters in Almhult, Sweden, the prototypes of the collection were presented to a group of 250 journalists.

IKEA asked Pınar&Viola to create prints that would attract, inspire, and surprise people all over the world. They wanted prints which would make them dream. To respond to IKEA’s wish, P&V created a collection which is an invitation to embrace the stranger, the unknown, the alien. A collection to celebrate similarities and differences. A collection to make people fantasise about social and planetary justice, through mythical animals and creatures. A collection to embrace the other. These themes are embodied in the four worlds: forest creatures, sweet alien, birds and the bees, and Gaudi giraffe.

The collection will be launched worldwide on June 2017. If you wish to know more about this collection don’t hesitate getting in touch with us: amandine@pinar-viola.com

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”.

This is how we will look in a millennia xx P&V

We have always been told that we cannot bring our earthly possessions to the afterworld. Not true! The most fabulous ancient skeletons are discovered. Encrusted with precious stones dating from the Roman Catacombs of the eighteenth century, these lavishly decorated skeletons makes us want to invest in precious jewels more than ever. Found and photographed by historian Paul Koudounaris, these images will be featured in his new book, Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures and Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs.

Fake scene boosting hope

A struggling town bought itself new hope by painting fake scenes on its walls

A bakery, a bookmaker and a barber have recently appeared in a village in Northern Ireland. But you cannot enter any of them. In a bid to bring in tourists, the town of Bushmills, famous for the whiskey that was first distilled there 400 years ago, has painted over a dozen abandoned storefronts and houses.

There are windows and doors with people looking out, a bakery with an appetizing selection of bread and cakes, and a traditional cobbler, where a man in a flat cap can be seen mending shoes.

It’s not the first time Northern Ireland has tried this. A similar attempt to doll up villages in county Fermanagh so that visiting G8 leaders wouldn’t see how woeful the region looked drew anger and derision; “cosmetic surgery for serious wounds,” one local resident said. But in Bushmills, local residents raised their own funds to add to government money, and the project’s been a success, a local councillor told Reuters; two of the painted stores have already found new owners.

Mobile Pâtisserie

Decoden comes from Japan, it’s a form of contemporary craftsmanship that’s focused on the decoration of technological devices. One of the possible embellishment themes of Decoden is pastry: sweet decorations turn mobile devices in faux-desserts. Realistic looking whipped cream, fruits, chocolate bars and cookies transform your mobile phone in a decadent piece of eye candy. With this candy you don’t need to worry about calories, however, if your mobile cake makes your mouth water, see it as the perfect moment to inhale some vapor candy. No need for chewing, just continue your phone conversation.
We bumped into Decoden while looking for visual elements for a new project we are currently working on with fashion designers MarryMe-JimmyPaul. We gave form to the catwalk of their upcoming show which will open the Amsterdam Fashion Week. Very soon we will upload the result!

Diplo got the first Pinar&Viola tattoo

Diplo got a tattoo designed by us. A K&L on his arm, showing his devotion to his son and the woman of his life. The font we used for it is actually the one we sign our work with. This is the first time we it for something else than our own signature.
He said he moved his arm too much, that’s why the white spots occurred in the design.
