Irish Proverb: Chíonn beirt rud nach bhfeiceann duine amháin
Two people see a thing that an individual does not see. In other words, two heads are better than one

About the artist
M&E Studio are Matthew Bolger and Emelie Lidström, an Irish/Swedish creative studio based in Malmö & Dublin. They work in the fields of graphic and product design, photography, illustration and film.
Known for their colourful work, love of process and unconventional approach, M&E Studio moves between designing for cultural institutions and within the music industry, to branding and concept development.
Their work often takes the form of controlled experiments dealing with reflection, distortion, light and colour by exploring a variety of materials such as glass, resin, wood and ink.
Their style is playful but with a dark undertone, with randomness and the relationship between nature and humanity being some of the reoccurring themes.
