Plakookee is a creative collaboration between Justin Plakas and Rachel Debuque. They are artists and designers who combine a mix of sculpture, installation, constructed photography and new media work. Their work often incorporates synthetic and man made materials in bold colors and patterns that push the boundaries of color, space and form with a digital approach.
Boxing Bears in Space uses augmented reality to bring together the look and feel of their physical sculpture with some of their research interests; deep space, the circus and comedic performance. Plakas and Debuque live and work in Maryland with their dog, Sherman. Their first book of photography, Forklift Experiments, will be released on December 2017.
