    Information

    The artist-design firm CONFETTISYSTEM works in a multivalent environment that resists simple categorization by discipline. The firm creates set designs, objects, and interactive installations for a range of partners including corporate clients, musicians, and art institutions. Comfortable in an advertising campaign, on a concert stage, or in a gallery, their work can be regarded as sculpture, design, and product—a confluence that is unconcerned with differences of commercial enterprise and nonprofit, the varying demands of function and aesthetics, and distinctions between consumer and connoisseur.

    For MoMA PS1’s two-story gallery, CONFETTISYSTEM (Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho, est. 2008) has created an immersive environment inspired by the mechanics of theatrical staging and fly systems. Evoking theatrical scrims and curtains, 100 Arrangements features new and older design elements by Andersen and Ho that are suspended from above and can be adjusted to varying heights to produce nearly endless permutations. The work serves as a performance space, playing host to live events that are part of MoMA PS1’s Sunday Sessions program. The variable environment can be reconfigured to best suit each event, highlighting a compositional system that allows for a functional design.

    CONFETTISYSTEM has art directed and created installations and sets for numerous fashion brands as well as musical acts Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Beyonce. In addition to decorating for private celebrations and working as creative consultants for numerous private labels, CONFETTISYSTEM has created custom design work for The New York Times, American Ballet Theatre, Opening Ceremony, Lanvin, Other Criteria UK, and Pop magazine with Gagosian Gallery, among others. For the past three years, CONFETTISYSTEM has created custom stage sets for MoMA PS1’s Warm Up music serie.
