Polarlicht Wishlist | wrapping paper

Polarlicht was invited by Subbacultha to create a wrapping paper design for their wrapping-paper-project. For the design we used the clippings from our christmas wishlist to compose a repeat pattern.

The wrapping paper was distributed to all Subbacultcha members and a few stores in Amsterdam wrapped their christmas gifts in it, such as the Stedelijk Museum Shop and Ace and Tate.

There is no aphrodisiac like innocence | webzine

view webzine

Webzine containing different types of fetish videos, focussing on the beauty and esthetics of the videos; the practical settings they choose, the materials, lighting and sound. Most striking was the esthetical innocence of these amateur filmmakers in relation to the ‘guilty’ content of these videos.

Aphrodisiac is a self-initiated project by Polarlicht.
The collection is also available on dvd.
