DRKRMS X Frank Nitty
DRKRMS is collaborating for the first time with new media artist Frank Nitty to examine the age of opulence in a one off project named 'øpulu$'. We live in time where excess is the norm, where society values quantity over quality and image over happiness. Frank is known for his eccentric animations and cerebral musings, often depicting vulgarities and uncouth themes of todays irreverent culture.
We see the photography acting as a starting point for Frank to work his own brand of originality and absurdity into the image, turning it into an animation and bringing it to life in a playful way. The foundations of this project are as ever derived from the image and the photographers behind them. The team are working with a total of 5 photographers from cities across the globe to take part in this collaboration, details of their original photographic series will be released alongside the work in the weeks to come.
