pvi collective are a tactical media arts group who create interdisciplinary artworks that are intent on the creative disruption of everyday life. every artwork aims to affect audiences on a personal and political level and is geared towards instigating tiny revolutions. the company aims to stretch the limits of performance to the edges of its meaning by creating playfully subversive performances and interventions, taking our audiences along with us for the ride.
underpinning our work is our ultimate goal of saving the world through creative play and revolutionary fun.
the above slideshow is from the recent season of deviator in glasgow at the surge street art festival. deviator is an immersive, real-world, outdoor game which invites players to temporarily transform their city into a playground. deviator blends radically altered versions of childrens’ games with subtle live performance, placing audiences as interventionists out on the streets, ready to creatively disrupt the city, one game at a time. for the season in glasgow, pvi also collaborated with 20 local artists to devise playful interventions for them to undertake in the city and join in with audience members playing the game.
