“A moving installation… a clever, original take on Millais Ophelia in Tate Britain” Mail on Sunday
“The first contemporary work in the sequence is also the most impressive. Davy and Kristin McGuire have created a lifesized hologram of a drowning Ophelia which is uncannily realistic, complete with bubbles and swimming fish. At the technical cutting edge, it clearly references Millais’ famous Pre-Raphaelite painting” Birmingham Mail
Ophelia’s Ghost is part of Shakespeare in Art at Compton Verney Museum until 19th June. Book your tickets here.
Last year our work made its debut in cinemas around the UK. As well as appearing in 26 exhibitions, art fairs and festivals in 20 cities across 7 countries, we travelled to 4 continents created 5 new commissions/works and won 3 awards. Thanks to all those who helped make it possible! Happy New Year!
We’ve finished a busy, jet setting year with a trip to France to install the paper craft film sets we created for Courvoisier’s recent campaign “The Toast of Paris” (see below or during your next trip to the cinema) in their beautiful chateau/museum in Jarnac.
Two years ago we collaborated with Joanie Lemercier on a holiday window for Barneys department stores on 5th Avenue in New York, and this year we’ve followed a festive calling from Japan’s representative jeweler Mikimoto in Tokyo. The display combines intricate paper craft with projection mapping and will run until Valentine’s day next year. Click on the image to view the trailer.
We’ve also received 2 awards for the display: Japan Space Design Association Award and a Ginza Association Division Excellence Award.
We’ve been working on 2 new commissions over the last 2 months, one is still under wraps and the other one goes life the night before Halloween as part of the national Museums at Night event. It’s called Starkers, and it involves a fair few nudes… you can read all about it in The Double Negative interview with Kristin.
Following our successful series of holographic fairies in jam jars we now have an edition of water nymphs as holographic projection sculptures. Please click on the images below to watch a little trailer of the work on Vimeo.
