The McGuire‘s hybrid art works are delicate, filigree fantasies built with fragile materials that are momentarily brought to life through digital projections and silent storytelling.
Created in 2009, The Icebook was the world‘s first projection mapped pop-up book which has become an international hit, both online and on tour. It has been invited to tour to more than 13 different countries over 3 continents and received more than half a million views online.
Winners of The Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award 2013, Davy & Kristin McGuire‘s work has included theatre productions such as The Icebook and the atmospheric stage adaptation of popular fantasy novel, Howl’s Moving Castle. Their latest award winning theatre show The Paper Architect premiered in July 2013 at the Barbican London.
Davy and Kristin’s commercial commissions include the Floating City for Barneys’ iconic Madison Avenue Christmas windows, and Alchimie de Courvoisier, a bespoke paper diorama originally displayed at Harrods. Their renowned projection mapping installations have been exhibited, sold, published and screened internationally.
Davy’s background is in theatre and film whereas Kristin has trained as a dancer who has performed with many international companies including Cirque du Soleil, she is currently a dancer with the Mark Bruce Company.
