New design A.I. (artificial Inteligence)

Yes, we have a new design. This design is named A.I. (artificial intelligence , concept by mao2016 and designed by Timo Schut 2017).

Is your Intelligence pure and unpolluted or is it artificial yet? Are you an autonomic mind free and unattached? Can we stay independent when the mind of the masses rule? What does authenticity really means? Do we measure our selves to the standards of an other? These questions are more and more topical issues. They are worth contemplating, good luck with you opinion.

The 1927 movie by Fritz Lang, Metropolis is used as inspiration for the AI promo. This film is a frightful glance in the future (of 1927) The creation of the perfect human being, manipulation of reality. This film is almost misused for Nazi ideology. So it is a bit tainted. Nevertheless it is a real cult movie that belongs to the cultcorner. We are here to feed you cult and culture.

Below a few distopic future fantasies: Solyent Green, The Matrix, 1984 and Metropolis! enjoy.

 

Behind the scenes

It might be that you are a regular visitor of our site or our Cultcorner and it might be that you have no idea who’s who behind all the visual violence and comments and what is our drive. So it is about time we introduce our selves to you,

 What kind of enterprise are we?

Artwearness.

Artful, fresh, sustainable and original.

Artful & original.
The time we live in requires a different way of thinking and acting. We have to deal with mass culture, overconsumption, over population and climate change.

Artwearness offers the conscious consumer an original and honest product with awareness.
It is a matter of choice.

Social statement.
Artwearness is an initiative of Marit Otto and Erik van Scheijndel. The concept is simple, a t-shirt as a canvas, with a social statement.

By our artistic statements and ironic graphics we seduce and tickle the wearer of the shirt to get out of his or her comfort zone and become more than a signpost for a brand name.

Inspiration.
Some of the prints are inspired on and extracted from Marit’s artworks. They are stripped of their original context and placed in a new perspective. Next to this we present fresh and new conceptual graphic designs. The concepts are based on an idea, a hunch or on current events.

Sustainability and fair trade.
Artwearness has no stock; each order is printed especially for each customer. No stock means no surplus and no waste resulting in a smaller ecological footprint. We print on the shirts of Stanley and Stella, they produce beautiful, high quality, modern, sustainable and slave free products.These choices are reflected in the price, we are not cheap. We are no competition for price fighters (Remember some one, some were, some environment gets exploited for cheap fashion). We offer you an honest alternative.

More artist, welcome.

Who are we; (from left to right, top to bottom) Founders: Marit Otto & Erik van Scheijndel and crew: Mike Olgers, Ellen Bloemhof en Davey van der Velden

Marit is autonomous artist and currently she runs ‘Atelier 007’ for art and graphic design in Zwolle. She believes art is a way to communicate. Art is authentic and offers a different point of view to current affairs and day to day live. The prints she makes are humorous and sometimes a bit on edge, but always original. Not designed for the greater masses but for the connoisseur.  Marit used elements from her artworks and turned them into graphic designs. But most designs are graphic designs based on thoughts and concepts.

Happy Apocalypse

Design Happy Apocalypse; I can almost hear your thoughts right now, isn’t it a bit of a rough start of a new spring Monday. Well, yes. But not the way you expect. This particular design is extracted from an artwork of mine (mao’07) from 2007 ‘Apocalypse’. The artwork represents an apocalyptic concept of men but the tumbling figures are somewhere in between flying and falling.  It leaves the viewer with the question, are they having fun or what? Are the on their way to meet the creator or are they celebrating freedom? They are footloose, somewhere in between ecstasy and disaster. The choreography of life as I see it. Life is like an ocean with high tides and low tides, crushing and vibrant, destructive and glorious at the same time. We are not living the ultimate dream, we just try to maintain and survive the best we can. In the meanwhile enjoying our selves it if we are able too.

Design Happy Apocalypse is discounted during a period of one month! Check us @ www.,artwearness.com

new design ‘MOM’ @ Artwearness

We present to you our brand new design; MOM. (Your and mine) mother’s day will be on the 14th of May. Take in mind; if it weren’t for your mom you would not exist at all! She carried you around for 9 months and learned how to behave. The simple fact that you are functioning today you owe to her. So celebrate your mother and her special day by giving her a great homage by wearing or giving this great shirt! She will be touched by your effort and feel very much appreciated. That’s worth something, isn’t it?

Not Only Civilized (part two)

What is civilization really? We look upon our selves as civilized creatures. We went to school, dress our selves properly and are house broken. Early civilizations began to overrule the so-called inferior species (primitives). For very civilized reasons of course: they would bring civilization according to what they thought it meant. If the inferiors were not supportive about their submission, the civilized would force civilization on them for the good off all (although, they claimed). Take the Romans with their silly manors and their frivolous outfits, they left us with roads, aqua ducts, drainage canals, politic systems and nice touristic sites all over Europe. But they also introduced slavery on a larger scale (note: they were not the first) they were decadent and thought they were superior to the under developed cavemen like Vikings, Germans, Hispanics, Gauloises and so on. To concur is to civilize. The Roman civilization collapsed on excesses, decadency, politic disputes and paranoia and finally ceased her existence. So much for the Roman Empire. With our very well developed intellect and civilization you could think that from then it was only upwards! And we would have learned from history. No such thing is true; later on many empires inspired on the Romans tried to concur in new ways, new strategies but according to the same dogma. We still commemorate the Second World War. Even after this war everyone was convinced that this (racism, fascism, genocide) could never happen again. Little did we know? This war was not the last war; it is unfortunately one of many and many more to come. A lot of new Roman empires with other names and appearances are growing and expanding. The motto: make war, and bring (our idea of) civilization is still very trending. So that rises to the question; what is being civilized really? I hope to find the answer some day…

This thought is brought to you by Artwearness design ‘ Not Only Civilized On the Outside’. Also available in our web store www.artwearness.com

We are by far the most original but not the cheapest in the world because we try to make civilized choices by using slave free and sustainable t-shirts.
