Together the 2 puppets face, balancing between hope and cynicism, the most universal themes in life, dreaming to reach happiness but always falling a bit short. Hopes, ambitions, and dreams are the favourite victims of the two discouraging friends. Happy ending never seems to be included, but this doesn’t mean that the 2 are giving up their quest, since they’ll always keep on chasing happiness despite their endless series of failures. Blue and joy are a perfect losing model.
THEIR AUTHORS // Behind Blue and Joy there are two Italian minds: Daniele Sigalot (Rome 1976) and Fabio La Fauci (Milan 1977). Both have been working in the advertising industry as a copywriter and art director. They have been working in different agencies in Milan, Barcelona and London, where recently they resigned from Saatchi&Saatchi in order to focus only on their discouraging puppets. In 2008 they moved to Berlin where they opened the first Blue and Joy studio.
