'Ordo ab Chao' – 'Order in Chaos'
The sacred war-cry of a secret, illuminated society.
Where there is method to madness.
We try to weave a simple story through a complex labyrinth of structures and urban-industrial waste. A reflection of our simple lives trapped in complex times.
Or, complex lives swimming in simple times.
Mazes are Dazed.
Quboid meets Floyd.
Fusing art-forms, ideas and characters, the artistes are not new to the idea of turning the mundane into manic.
They invent 'Quboidism', resurrect urban scrap and plug it to new media with multi-dimensional video art. The reverse alchemy of turning Gold into Water. Because our past civilizations were known for what they preserved and the present will be known for what it destroys. How about a little re-construction from what has been discarded? Without taking ourselves too seriously. A little tongue in cheek perhaps. With some method to all this madness.
The artistes have used post-industrial, urban waste like discarded water pipes, faucets, scrap and junk with new age multi dimensional media.

Swarovski came on board to sponsor the finale ensemble at WIFW Spring Summer 2011 - MACHIS
Gully Cricket – This is where it all begins. In the nooks, crannies and streets. In the backyards, in-front of shops, behind the temple. Amidst cows, rickshaws, trucks and fruit carts.
The first bat, the first ball, the first team. The sweet taste of the first victory and the bitter punch of defeat.
Cricket in India is not just a sport. It is religion. And this religion is born in the streets.
Gully cricket has its own culture. It has its own unique nuances. Its own language and art.
This is a culture that every Indian grows up with.
In this collection, we have tried to translate these strong cultural references as well as essential Indian street imagery on the garments. The visual imagery, typography and verbiage are representative of this culture.
The color palette is made up of stark, bright painted colors that one can see on Indian streets. There is also a conscious use of the tri-color – from the Indian National Flag – but in a very subtle matter, because sport and patriotism go hand in hand. At the same time there is also a sprinkling of an edgy feel to keep in tune with the look of the youth.
Indian street imagery supported with street typography is are the forerunners in the designs. Cricket related text has replaced the usual text in most places playing on the cricket context on street imagery to the fullest.
Use of hand painted letters, street signage; vernacular scripts mixed with contemporary, present day and futuristic fonts add the Bioscope twang all the way.
