Carnovsky is the Milan-based artistic duo of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla, responsible for the trippiest wallpaper and scarves you are ever likely to set eyes on. Their RGB series of artworks combine independent colored images into fabulous, multi-layered bestiaries and jungles. From their website:

RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”.

RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus.

RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color. The resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting. The colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear. Through a colored filter (a light or a transparent material) it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed. The filter’s colors are red, green and blue, each one of them serves to reveal one of the three layers.

I discovered this temporary light sculpture in a park in Austin, Texas and had to take a video. I was wearing diffraction glasses and tripping on shrooms, so every source of light exploded into a dazzling spectrum of colors. The effect was magical, as though the tree was scrawling across the sky with bright and fiery fingers.

The music completed the experience. Nodding my head to the Geographer song playing in my headphones (“Paris”) and watching the colors drift across my vision, I had one of those moments. You know the ones, where the scene is so perfect that you are struck speechless, wondering how can life contain moments this beautiful? I must be in a movie, right? No way scenes like this happen in real life.

Naturally, I took a video with diffraction glasses over the lens, and took note of the song that had captured the moment with such perfect serendipity.
