Carnovsky and additive mixtures


Carnovsky is a duo of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla. Their design project RGB lies in  wallpapers, art pieces, installations, scarves… where overlap different images in cyan, magenta and yellow (basic pigment colours). What happen if you see them with different coloured lights or special glasses?

Coloured lights make different images appear based on the color used. According to the artists, RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness.” In each image three layers live together, three worlds that could belong to a specific animal kingdom or to an anatomical part, but at the same time connect to a different psychological or emotional status.
