KAIMIN - Zero Zero Project Vol. 02

ZERO ZERO PROJECT VOL. 02 / VISION & INSPIRATION

One of the great virtues of Art is that it enables us to see the world through different lenses. As a consequence, we are forced to oscillate from passive spectator to active participant, a role that imbues work with meaning. In this spirit, 00 aims to change the way in which we engage, perceive and experience creativity. 00 symbolizes the contrasting duality of the subject in celebration of preserving the toughest work of the most progressive individuals of our time.

Zero Zero Project proudly introduces the 2nd Volume: the collaboration of the groundbreaking artists Kaimin x Miles Aldridge x Nicola Formichetti. With each provocative chapter divided into Black and White, the concept of fetishism is challenged and explored between the subconscious and conscious state of human instinct in contrasting interpretation.

In this Black Story, the mythical character of Salome and Succubus was revived as Kaimin with her lustful body and extraordinarily long black hair. Through the inimitable lens of Miles Aldridge, the myth became astonishing reality and Nicola accelerated each individual's sultry expression to reach the climax in every moment. This titillating creation of three artists eliminates the distance between fantasy and reality and captivates the viewers into dangerously seductive dream. Upcoming white story is fathomable and delves more into reality and real senses. The final contrary of Black and White story will be delivered to viewers in December 2012.
