Design Walk has become one of the most important design exhibitions in Greece. Each year several design agencies or creative teams, open their doors to the public, showcasing their work. This year, double decker from London curated the event by challenging the Design Studios to create a piece of work inspired by the contradictions / oppositions with which every designer has to deal.

Indyvisuals had to deal with the contradiction between digital vs analog, something pleasing as almost everything we do combines both technologies and creative processes. We invited our friend Charis Tsevis, famous for his digital mosaics and we inverted the whole process. We provided him with the symbols and the photo we wanted to use, in order to create the digital mosaic that we would later convert into a physical piece. He returned to us with the final piece which consisted of 3 different sized square pieces and 58 varieties of color and size combinations. All this on a 6×2,5m canvas made of 120 columns and 50 rows of a 5×5pixel grid. The pieces were digitally printed and glued on our studio wall during a 3-day rush. Along with the mural-mosaic-installation we came up with some canvasses and installations.
