“I believe in the power of image and words, so when Motiva showed me their technology I was inspired and excited by its potential.”
-Diane von Furstenberg

The Motiva experience is not just about creating a product, but about telling a story, inspiring change, and fostering connection.
Following are a few testimonials from some of our creators on their Motiva experience:
Malika Favre (Illustrator and Graphic Artist) on Motiva
“What drew me to the Motiva project was the seamless balance between technology and art. Both aspects seem to complement each other in a subtle and poetic way without taking away from the art itself or becoming gimmicky. There is also something very soothing about Motiva’s hybrid paper/digital display.”
Aaron Ciechanover (Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry) on Motiva
“I’ve always had a passion for the unique space that lies between biomedical research and the arts – be it architecture or design, performing or visual arts. In that sense, the work on Motiva joined me on my highway, and together we had a wonderful journey. Different elements combine and give a novel representation of my work and ideas.”
Dana Oberson (Architect) on Motiva
“When I was introduced to Motiva, I saw an exceptional design that is seamless but also serves a greater purpose with its combination of inspiring quotes and great artwork.
While envisioning my Motiva, ‘Everything Is Better in Black’, I put together my love for design and what it means to me. I see Motiva as a space in which I can undoubtedly express my vision, through quotes about the things that I am most passionate about – design, architecture, and women power. Like the quotes that blend together within the letter grid, these 3 concepts shape my life.”
Diane von Furstenberg (Fashion Designer, Businesswoman, Author & Philanthropist) on Motiva
“I believe in the power of image and words, so when Motiva showed me their technology I was inspired and excited by its potential.
Dan Ariely (Researcher, Author & Professor) on Motiva
“Working with Motiva has been an adventure. When I got the original request I didn’t really understand where this was going, but I decided to trust the process and have fun with it. And indeed, every step was fun and interesting and during the process, I learned something about my own work, art, and technology.”
Anna Devís & Daniel Rueda (Photographers & Visual Artists) on Motiva
“We’re very glad that our collaboration with Motiva has led us to create an image that reflects what we believe are some of the key issues affecting girls and women worldwide today, such as gender-based censorship, misogyny, or the hyper-sexualization of the female body. Through Motiva’s innovative medium, we could create an empowering piece of art while also being able to spark difficult but necessary conversations.”
Udi Bassis (Bio-Technologist & Artist) on Motiva
“Motiva allowed me to gather all that I have known from the previous world and add another dimension to it in my creation process. The light and words break through and resonate the accuracy of the art and illuminate the words with hope, in a time where ambiguity reigns in every corner. The dynamic motion of Motiva empowers the imagination of the artist and the viewer altogether. It brings to mind the question of illusion and what is real while simultaneously making for a surprising and extraordinary experience.”
Noma Bar (Graphic Designer, Illustrator & Artist) on Motiva
“Working on Motiva, as a new exploratory platform, has brought with it the challenge and diversity that I enjoy as an artist. Motiva is likely a platform for digital art and illustration. Working with Motiva has given me an opportunity to showcase my work on a new medium and reach a wider audience. My aim, with any portrait, is to provide recognition first and then a deeper appreciation of the hidden meaning.”
