Pinar & Viola France

Cover Image - Pinar & Viola

From 2009 to 2021, French multidisciplinary artists Pinar Demirdag and Viola Renate—aka Pinar & Viola—created surreal imagery that riffed on digital cultures and technologies of the past and present. Some of their projects include textile-inspired patterned collages of tacky digital ephemera, a hypnotic music video for Diplo, a trippy collection of homewares for Ikea, and garments printed with patterns designed using Google’s DeepDream machine-learning software. On WePresent, we spoke to them about bad taste, consumerism, and why good design is like spellcasting.
