PD SPRING/SUMMER At the beginning of summer we experimented with similar materials as in PD628, extending the look and notion by using new objects, natural light and a more »earthly« surrounding. Some of the results came out more vivid and exuberant, others seemed to be references to classical nude paintings, interpreted more contemporarily. muse: Diana Wehmeier
SEVEN ESSAIS & PD 628 Seven Essais is a small mixed media series of images, which supposed to be scetches for further collaboration projects.

Some images from our collaboration project PD628 were also published in australian Fashion & Art Magazine FAINT and in british Fashion Magazine AVENIR. muse: Diana Wehmeier & Jess Ostrowicz

The exceptional dancer Corey Scott-Gilbert and Diana Wehmeier as THE SKINWALKER will perform live and exclusively, what had been exhibited as results from their Skinwalker Project in 2013. Musically underlined by a DJ set of Manuel Rather.

PLANET EARTH IS BLUE Every attempt to travel into space has its beginning. Before we got invaded by ELEKTRA 628, we had a test flight. Two of the images from our series »PD 628: Planet Earth is blue« are part of the solo exhibition at Gallery Irrgang, Berlin.
NEW PUBLICATIONS We are very proud to be published in three very different magazines. TAR Magazine featured SKINWALKER in their latest Futurity Issue. We also created a fashion editorial for Blonde Magazine. FAINT Magazine from Australia finally arrived in Europe. Feels kind of weird to see our Overscan fashion editorial printed, although it's about digital distortions.
SKINWALKER VERNISSAGE @ GALLERY IRRGANG BERLIN We would like to share some impressions from our first SKINWALKER solo exhibition, taken by Anna Schwabe @ Mitten in der Kunst & Stefan Klenke.

HELLO DARKNESS, MY OLD FRIEND Lovely and most wonderful Marlene Pina had been our main inspiration for NeverLazy Magazines exclusive Covereditorial "Hello Darkness, my old friend". Some of these are mixed media images & collages, others are revived by a simple light setting and the graceful sadness of Marlene.

WE OUTGROW LOVE, LIKE OTHER THINGS Mirrors have always been an element we used to create our images. For our fashion editorial "We outgrow love, like other things" we wanted to make the theme mirrors the central aspect of this work. The magnificent styling was provided by Radmyla Schroedter. Anna Czilinsky underlined with her creative artwork as Hair & Make-up artist the magic, moody atmosphere. Dino & Rosali (Dopamin Model Management & Via Models) imitate a disrupted couple, divided in space and reunited in their reflections. The title were inspired by a poem of Emily Dickinson: We outgrow love, like other things / And put it in the Drawer – / Till it an Antique fashion shows – / Like Costumes Grandsires wore. // Der Lieb entwachsen wir, wie allem / Und schieben sie in Laden – / Bis altertümlich wirkt ihr Stil – / Ein Trachtenrock der Ahnen. // (Übersetzung: Gunhild Kühler)
& we like to thank Svea Poestges & Ilona Falk for their suggestions, moods & assistance!

OVERSCAN - Disturb our images For our mixed media fashion editorial »Overscan« we used different digital and analogue effects. The futuristic mood was provided by an extraordinary styling of Radmyla Schroedter and our hair and make-up artist Mona Jansen. Furthermore, we have implemented some »Processing« programs as an online feature, which allows you to rearrange or even disturb our images by clicking & moving your cursor.

DOMINIQUE ROSALES & THE PLAYGROUND PROJECT An einem herrlich sonnigen Tag im letzten September durften wir für das Playground Project, initiert von Dominique Rosales, mehrere Stunden mit sechs Damen im besten Alter, einem Baby im Supermankostüm und zwei Schildkröten im Spreepark verbringen. Es war ein Heidenspaß und wir bedanken uns bei allen Teilhabenden! photography: Schall & Schnabel

PD 628 Seit einiger Zeit arbeiten wir an einer weiteren Kollaboration mit Diana Wehmeier. PD628 verweist auf die astronomische Katalogbezeichnung von Sternenhaufen oder -nebeln. Entstanden ist eine umfangreiche Reihe an Bildern, die in ihrer Farbgebung und in der Wahl ihrer Mittel, Assoziationen zu den interstellaren Wolken aus Staub und Gas hervorruft Die Bilder versuchen sich an einer Gegenüberstellung. An der kleinsten und größten Einheit von Entfernung. Am deutlichsten kulminiert die Reihe in der Überlagerung mit der Malerei "160 000", die an den Tarantulanebel angelehnt ist.
Nach und nach werden in den kommenden Wochen weitere Bilder veröffentlicht.
