A.I. a new & ‘intelligent’ design

Yes there’s a new one. This time inspired on our high tech lives. Although artificial intelligence is currently a serious matter we approach it with little humor. But we are also aware of it  because soon the imaginary line between human and humanlike technology will be crossed and then what?

(NL) Ja, daar is alweer een nieuwe. Deze keer geïnspireerd op onze high-tech levens. Hoewel kunstmatige intelligentie tegenwoordig een erg serieus en actueel thema is benaderen we het thema met humor. Maar we zij ons ook heel erg bewust van de dunne lijn tussen mens en intelligente machine, deze dreigt snel te verdwijnen…. en dan wat?

In addition we have a nice philosophical thought for you:

“If all intelligence were artificial, than what would be the state of civilization?

Would it be clean, punctual and orderly, but boring and loveless? Or would it be fantastic, inventive and progressive but pure functional?

Hope, that this question is never finds it’s answer.”

(NL) We hebben in navolging daarop nog een kleine gedachte voor je:

” Als intelligentie kunstmatig was, wat zou dan de staat van onze beschaving zijn?

Zou het een schone, punctuele en geordende maar saaie en liefdeloze samenleving zijn? Of zou het fantastisch, inventief en progressief maar puur functioneel zijn?

Ik hoop dat deze vraag zijn antwoord nooit vindt.”

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.

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.
