pvi collective create agitational, participatory 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 make activists of our audiences by creating playfully subversive performances that invite genuine engagement, transforming our perceptions of space, cities and environment.

underpinning our work is our ultimate goal of saving the world through creative play and revolutionary fun.

the above slideshow is from the 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.
