I Scream Factory
Life is like ice cream, eat it before it melts.
I Scream Factory is predominantly a non-profit web-gallery showcasing ice cream-inspired work across fashion, photography, film and fine art.
What WE DO
Since the launch in 2010 the I Scream Factory™ art collective has discovered and worked with over 35 photographers and artists from all over the world, to give them a platform to showcase their work in context.
We held 6 exhibitions and events in London. For each show we collaborated with creative partners such as Kobalt Music, Habitat, Hoxton Gallery, Proud Camden, and the Victoria & Albert Museum, and gave the artists exposure through the I Scream Factory channels as well as the local and regional press.
By exploring life through the metaphor of ice cream, the collective aims to empower a creative way of life and put the focus back on the present moment.
Inspired by a segment of Jim Jarmusch’s Down By Law (1986) in which Bob Benigni, an Italian cellmate, quotes from his “book of English” – “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream”. This line becomes a maniacal recitation. Ice Cream, a fast-melting delicacy, seems to embody various dimensions of life itself. Delicate yet cold, and of ephemeral pleasure and those who eat it, know it.

My family makes ice cream since 1879. Through the project I express that ice cream is more than a melting product.
The design by the Finish designer Tomi Lähdesmäki reflects the idea of an art collective, as well as not forgetting about the individual creative.
