Our Kisses [ourkiss.es] is an ongoing project where we focus on uniting the world instead of dividing.
Petrovsky&Ramone created an interactive installation in collaboration with Random Studio where you can kiss a mirror rigged with a special sensor. We developed a custom application where you see yourself projected, randomly kissing other people.
In a chaotic media landscape where sex is seen as replacement for love we would like to show more human affection. We want to focus on embracing the love, understanding and tenderness we feel for one and another. To see yourself interacting with people in an unexpected way makes us more aware of our expectations for ourselves and others. The awareness arises that we in fact, somewhere, deep down there, are all the same.
When you look in the mirror you see the other.
Our Kisses [ourkiss.es] was first installed and presented during the “Oxymoron” exhibition of Petrovsky&Ramone in Beijing, China during the Beijing Design Week 2013.
P&R have been photographing and filming people “making out” for the last 4 years as an ongoing project.
