Pinar&Viola: Gentlemen Like You (a magic spell)

As part of the research work for a planned composer/artist collaboration RTF commissioned  the Amsterdam based post-digital artists Pinar & Viola to create a design for a pocket square.   After some deliberation, which included their relocating to Paris, the pair came up with the desire to create a “wearable spell” and produced as a design a digital painting suffused with symbols and meaning.

The design has subsequently been used as background wallpaper on the WeTransfer website; and as a large format print on aluminium in Google’s offices.
