A very special thank you to our VR Engineers Brian Banton and Denys Bastov of Oculus
Music To Your Eyes is our first international exhibition. Here, we bring our distinctly optimistic, unapologetically vibrant, and supremely fun world of explosive colour to Calm and Punk's gallery space in Tokyo.
         Music to your eyes is an exploration of harmony through visual stimulation of our work in order to explore colour and form. Our goal is to ignite a sensation for the viewer that is optimistic yet also leaves them with a sense of joy. Ultimately it is our way we describe our work: as visual music. Similar in concept to audible music, everything we look at and engage with has its own rhythm. Through the use of multiple mediums ranging from photography, wall reliefs, inflatables and a virtual reality experience, we encourage visitors to enter their world of insatiable optimism and explosive color.
         The photographs on these walls are real—they are not 3D. The bodysuits were designed specifically for this show, and the sculpted shields held by those bodies were cut and painted by hand. We embrace the fact that they are imperfect and flawed. In the photographs on the walls, we camouflage ourselves as body sculptures, drenched in pattern and color that transcends from these images to sculptural wall hangings to inflatables hanging from the ceiling and finally to virtual reality discoverable through a headset. Our goal is to extend their vision to multiple dimensions, so you may enjoy their colorful world no matter which reality you may live in.

Travel the world with the color of the year.
    The standard for modern travel and the standard for color partnered up to celebrate the Color of the Year. To celebrate the launch of the exclusive capsule collection we were commissioned to create imagery that was bold and graphic that hinted towards the language of graphic design and print proofs.

DanCassab x Leta Sobierajski: We Are What We Think

In collaboration with Mexico City-based label DanCassab, we launched a limited-edition shirt design together benefitting Project Paz’s COVID at the border initiative. Project Paz is a NYC non-profit helping Latino and Mexican communities.

On the front, the shirt reads “Love Thy Neighbor,” a statement that holds true to both of us as continental neighbors. On the back, “We Are What We Think” is emblazoned matter of factly in neon green and white ink. This shirt feels like a true statement to so much that is happening in 2020. We must protect and love one another and fight for a future for our world. We shouldn’t be putting up walls or building barriers between ourselves and our neighbors and this shirt speaks to that. This shirt is a reminder that we should strive to be compassionate about our neighbors during these uncertain times.

The collaboration was sold exclusively on dancassab.com, with 50% of proceeds going to support communities in need on both sides of the U.S. and Mexico border.
