The Panda Show by Pinar & Viola is an application piece that boasts new aesthetics and amusement.

Stellar art and design duo Pinar Demirdag and Viola Renate have created an interactive webcam application that allows you to virtually sport a panda mask. Playful, and highly amusing, the piece was created for none other than Nicola Formichetti, the creative force behind Mugler and countless editorial pieces for Vogue Homme.

Along with the hilarity that ensues when creating these snapshots, the pictures make reference to the Tumblr world and Internet art. In addition, the Panda Show by Pinar & Viola allows the user to partake in a phenomenon that glorifies kitsch for a truly new aesthetic; one that has been slowly filtering into the mainstream through the realms of art and fashion.
