Above are a a selection of images from the RGB wallpaper series by Carnovsky, a Milan-based art duo comprised of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla.
RGB explores “surface’s deepness”: it creates surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. The technique consists of the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary colour, mixing up the colours: through a coloured filter (a light or a transparent material) it's possible to clearly see the layers in which the image is composed.
The filter’s colours are red, green and blue, and each one of them serves to reveal one of the three levels. In each image three layers live together, as well as three worlds that could belong to a specific animal kingdom or to an anatomical part.
