Dvein is a collaborative project by the directors Fernando Domínguez, Teo Guillem and Carlos Pardo providing direction and art direction for live action and animation.
Since 2007 they have been working for international clients, such as Diesel, Canal+, MTV, National Geographic and Nokia, among others. They like to think of themselves as an open-minded studio always up to be involved in the whole creative process of the proposals that they take part in.
Besides their commercial activity, Dvein is also a platform for experimentation. They are not afraid of thinking outside the box- as they were not afraid in the past of melting a plastic toy helicopter, directing ants and snails, or building a miniature music festival.
Their work has been shown in many events and festivals like TOCA ME in Munich, Playgrounds in Amsterdam, F5 in New York, ArtFutura in Buenos Aires and in some of them, they had the opportunity to collaborate as speakers also.

United Visual Artists (UVA) are an art and design practice based in London, creating work that lies at the intersections of sculpture, architecture, live performance and installation.
The studio’s origins in design for live performance led to a sustained interest in spectacle, the relationship between passive and active participation, and the use of responsive systems to create a sense of presence. As UVA’s work has broadened and evolved towards large-scale permanent works, it has become more influenced by the complex systems found in nature, while retaining its desire to emotionally engage the viewer and create a sense of communion.
With an open approach to collaboration, the members of UVA come from backgrounds in a wide variety of disciplines, and this cross-pollination of skills inspires new fields of exploration.
United Visual Artists have been commissioned by Artwise Curators, The Creators Project, La Gaite Lyrique, National Maritime Museum, Opera North, Royal Academy of Arts,Victoria & Albert Museum and YCAM Japan.
Their work has been exhibited at institutions and galleries including the South Bank Centre, the Wellcome Collection, Durham Cathedral, Riflemaker, Gazelli Art House and The British Library. Internationally UVA have shown in Barcelona, Beijing, Hong Kong, Melbourne, New York, Paris, Sao Paolo, St Petersburg, Taipei and Tokyo. Their designs for live performance have led to commissions for venues such as the Tate Modern turbine hall, the Serpentine Gallery and Madison Square Garden in New York with public art works on permanent display in London, Bristol, Toronto and Istanbul.
