We share with you some backstage pictures of our contribution for the project Plants Out of Place, directed by Studio Aikieu (UK) and Coloni (Sweden) and launched at the recent London Design Festival 2015.
The collective project seeks to engage with the wider communities to re-consider the value of wild plants and how we may utilise them to design for a better future.
That is the 2nd part of our little report of our last trip at LUSTR illustration festival in Prague. We really enjoyed the good quality and fresh energy.
For a complete tour inside the exhibition and workshops, take a look at the really nice photos by Dita Havránková HERE and HERE.
We have been lucky enough to have been invited to join LUSTR - Illustration festival in Prague (CZ). There we had both GELATOLOGY 2D and the classic 3D workshops.
As always, you can find the final sculptures in the GELATOLOGY tumblr.
We have been invited to join the exhibition ARTIGIANI 2.0 - part of the super-size programme of this year Treviso Comics Book Festival, along with Jacopo Rosati, Phil Toys, Fabio Tonetto and Rocco Lombardi. We set three tables with the material and visual research behind our last screenprinted book SPECIMEN, by Print About Me editions. These are some photos of the setting up.
We had happily taken part in the lovely exhibition Pranzo Improvvisato - powered by Ilaria Faccioli, Gaia Stella and Cristina Amodeo.
22 International illustrators X 22 Futurist recipes from the historical La Cucina Futurista by Marinetti and Fillìa (1930). First superexciting stop: La Triennale di Milano (September, 24th-30th 2015).
It's been a while since we were at PICK ME UP FESTIVAL - graphic arts festival at the magnificent Somerset House in central London - from 22nd April to 4th May. It has been good fun in a very stimulating and busy atmosphere. Here some pictures of our stand and workshop GELATOLOGY TAKE AWAY - next time something about all the rest. Great memories and nice encounters!

Inoltre entrambi pratichiamo la fotografia analogica, con vecchi macchinari, più che per realizzare delle buone foto, perché ci piace la resa finale meno fredda e meno perfetta delle foto digitali. / We trained as painters, but during this last year we have worked a lot for this book. Moreover we practice analog photography, with old sought machinery, because we like the final yield that is less cold and less perfect than the digital photos.
