We fell in love with this incredible music video, signed by the young highly-gifted french directors Virgile Texier and Guillaume Cagnard. To be of course viewed preferentially on a mobile phone, it crystallizes all the characteristics of the millennial generation: the pervasiveness of social media in our lives and the fragility of the coming of age period in an hyper-connected world.
The use of the vertical video format and the impeccable direction brings in a very clever take on technology and intimacy...
Euphrates is a Japanese collective of artists, researchers, and designers led by Masahiko Sato at Keio university. Their short film 'ballet rotoscope' traces the lines and curves of the dancer's body as she moves.shapes and geometries that follow the dance trajectory become abstract animations, each generated by mathematical methods. These independently-moving lines were created by connecting the movement of ballerina's joints, using a computer-based algorithm to find and outline her specific movements within the space. The result is an astonishing mix of mathematics and poetry!
Marius Sperlich's (@mariussperlich) work is a tour de force of creativity, imagination and technical skill. Obsessed with how photography triggers our imagination, he shows the human body from an unusually close perspective. Unleashing a raw erotic power, the Berlin-based photographer's images redefine extreme close-up.
Featuring alluring and vivid red hues, the artist zeroes in on women's features in his photos, capturing fine details of the female physique. Women aren't Sperlich's sole subjects. He uses objects such as pearls and other miniature props to bring intimate and coquettish visuals to life.
Berlin-based artist and motion designer Olivier Latta (A.K.A Extraweg) works with both static and moving forms of design and artistic expression. His mesmerizing world brings together typographic experiment, weird physicality, abstract visual poetry and surrealism! Translating his own daily situations and experiences into surrealistic scenes, he allows each viewer to question their own reality through his gravity and material-defying plastic beings.
