Pink Twins’ videos work on the crossing of visual art and music. Their computer-treated imagery focuses on human perception, its functionality and limits. Pink Twins built a tissue of connections between their sound work and their visual work, attempting to intimately join mundane fragments usually disjoint. They work with fragments of images, sounds and sensations which our daily life is subjected to and break them down into small particles to reunite them once again in audacious chaotic constructions.
For their live performances Pink Twins incorporate live electronic music and a live mix of video works. The music of Pink Twins is based on improvised live sound processing of concrete and electronic sounds, noises and musical elements. The mix of live sound and video projections creates a hyperactive, constantly changing and extremely detailed experience of time and space.
Pink Twins have released for instance DVDs called Sketches of Pain and Pink Twins Catalogue, and a CDR Pink Light/Pink Heat. The most recent release by the duo is a vinyl LP Four Million Suns from 2010.
