The Making of Wave. Particle. Duplex.

As part of the Designer in Residence program at A/D/O by MINI, Studio Swine was commissioned to explore new areas and techniques that they had yet to exhibit. Wave. Particle. Duplex. is the result of those explorations.

Studio Swine (Super Wide Interdisciplinary New Explorers) is an art collective established in 2011 by Alexander Groves (UK) and Azusa Murakami (JP). Their work straddles between the spheres of sculpture, installations and cinema; blending poetry and research into immersive experiences. The studio adopts an unique approach to each work; drawing on the distinctive resources and vernacular aesthetic of its cultural, historic, and economic landscape. Professional training in art and architecture allows the studio to bridge rich and emotional narratives with rigorous technical and spatial awareness.
