In 2006 Pictoplasma transformed the most captivating, screwball and outstanding graphical characters of the times into fantastic costumes. Padded, hydraulic or helium-filled, the creatures literally came to life. Based on the designs of illustrators from Buenos Aires, Miami, Barcelona, Toronto, Osaka or Paris, the new inhabitants of the virtual PictoOrphanage allowed real-life donors to sponsor them – and thereby enable the production and birth of corporeal characters from the realm of the digital image.
