Encor (aka SUPERMAFIA) is a digital design studio founded in 2015 by swiss artists Mirko Eremita, David Houncheringer, Valerio Spoletini, and Manuel Oberholzer. They careen with virtuosity between commercial, branding assignments and the world of art with a capital "A."

 

The video linked at the top is from the "reveal" of the new SWISS Bombardier CS300. This show was composed of a massive 30 meters wide transparent screen offering holographic effects.

At the Fête des Lumières in 2018, the artists installed Frontier (see the second video). The play of light on a pool of water unfolds via increasingly ingenious strategies to derive surprise and delight from this simple, primal idea. 

Scrolling Realities is an audiovisual performance by Encor Studio and Maria Guta. The sculptural element, a sphere, is a luminous counterpoint to human performance.

Inflatable Dance Floor (bottom, left) is something else, again. Loud, kinetic, it shows off the range of this artist team. For those who like dancing with their art, this is for you. The artists write:

"Inflatable Dance Floor is a global performance.
It take place on a empty space, and we bring with us and install everything we need to party. An inflatable club with a capacity of more than 50 people, a generator, the sound system and visuals, the installation takes us less than 10 minutes and is a full part of the performance.

As a conceptualization of the "clubbing bubble", we fight for our rights to party... in a contemporary way.

First shown during the mapping festival 2011 in Geneva, it took us less than 10 minutes to build everything, and we had 20 minutes to party before the police came and asked us to stop."
