'EICON' is a coined word that refers to a Electric Icon. 'Eicon / SLAPSTICK' incorporates an acting style found in early film called slapstick, it employs the use of a special high speed camera in order to reinvigorate the physicality of working motion. There is a tendency in the directing of recent film for personal philosophical expression to have ascendancy over the essence of body movement. Eicon examines the methodology of classical acting exploring new aspects of the body and the garment recording images at 0.012 second intervals thus elevating slapstick in the hierarchy of modern film making.This instillation was born of a collaboration with Tomoaki Okaniwa  designer of The Viridi-anne and it was shown in conjunction with his Spring/Summer Paris '08 collection.
