Live and Explore!

In april 2011 we were invited by a crew of UK based journalists (Redwood Group), from the Volvo's LIV magazine, to partecipate in theyr "European Art Movement" project. The basic idea was a trip trough Europe on their Volvo XC60 with three stops, one for every selected artist. The stops were Bornholm in Denmark (Anne Sofie Meldgaard), Leipzig in Germany (Metulczki) and Lugano in Switzerland (us). We had to choose a place to realize a work and we decided to do that on the top of the "Balestra" Carpark in the center of Lugano. 

The work we realized represents a kind of exploration: the astronaut is a person who visits places that few humans can see, looking at things with wonder and, of course, for the first time; he discover them. The car instead explores the inside, lives the place in detail; it knows it and it's part of it. The article and the interview are published on issue n°2 - 2011 of LIV magazine and also as video documentary on Volvo's website.

Goodbye Donuts!

It's out now on iTunes Store, the latest album of the japanese band Icon Girl Pistols, for which we made the cover art and we created a new band logo: "Goodbye Donuts (Hey, statue of Liberty)".

We were contacted by the Icon Girl Pistols after using one of their songs for our art-video "Lack of ispiratione" (made with Andrea Todaro). They gave us 100% of freedom and we created something that in our minds could fit with their music. 
The big mechanical creature spread with pink paint a heap-dump-city district floating on the water; he's probably dancing and making a lot of noise while a new life arrives everywhere around him.

Take a better look of the album cover on our website.

You can listen and buy the album on iTunes store, and visit the band's website. We also have a wallpapers set here in the downloads page.
