Minimalist design, scenographic sculptures and constantly changing typography circulate around the song mayfly.
For Alice Rose & Moniko‘s record label and music video debut designer and scenographer Lenny Grade and Catrin Mackowski used the song’s lyrics of a fragile ending love and it’s spiritual hope of rebirth to translate it into scenes of delicate balance, objects that transform, circulate or flow and a lead singer that is arranged in a state of absence while being present.

Within 15 Minutes - The average time between twins when they are born
Alma Haser has always found identical twins fascinating, as do most people. It is the incredible realisation that there are two versions of the exact same person, hard to tell apart, unless they wear different clothes or hairstyles. They often finish each other's sentences, as they are one and the same person.
Monozygotic or identical twins occur when a single egg is fertilized to form one zygote which then divides into two separate embryos. Monozygotic twins are genetically almost identical. Identical twins do not have the same fingerprints because, even in the confines of the womb, the foetuses touch different parts of this environment, creating small variations in the same fingerprint and therefore making each of them unique.
Alma photographed sets of identical twins and made them into identical jigsaw pussies. She then swaps every other piece of their puzzles, completely mixing them half and half. Not always knowing where their eyes, mouths and lips would end up, the result is a pair of eerie, unrecognisable portraits. No longer seen as completely identical, they are unique.

Tarek Mawad and Friedrich van Schoor, also known as collective 3hund are two german artists, sharing the same passion for nature, adventure and dark melancholic images. They teamed up with electronic composer Achim “Künstler” Treu, a.k.a. UFO Hawai, to create "LUCID". A surreal world based on simple geometric light shapes that seem misplaced, but somehow blend with its surrounding at the same time.
"The idea was to create a surreal world based on simple geometric light shapes that seem misplaced, but somehow blend with its surrounding at the same time. Shapes that emphasize the mood of its surrounding in the most simple way. By installing electroluminescent light shapes and wires in untouched landscapes, a single lightsource tells a surreal story of magic and loneliness in a surreal and intense way. Every environment has its own light installation.
The intention was to summarize all installations in a cinematographic way to create a touching short film"
Traum Inc. was commissioned by ON Running to promote their new shoe Cloud X released in a special all black and all white version.
Shot in Iceland the film creates a world of black and white, brutalist and wild but technical, balancing sublime landscapes with technical closeups and 3D renderings of the shoe. The film pits a runner agains his alter ego, chasing each other until it comes to a final stand off between both.

Ricky Korf is an award winning designer and art director, rooted in Leipzig Germany. Starting with graphic design in 2002. Flexibly working over the years from either the sleepy town in the countryside fields or from Hamburg, the gate to the world.
Recently hosted TOCA ME festival invited leading motion artists Susi Sie and Remo Gambacciani to create Official Titles of the event.
The ever-changing landscapes inspired by organic textures and surfaces within surreal worlds created by processing live action scenes with CG techniques. To create morphing textures MATERIA (Susi Sie and Remo Gambacciani) captured slowly spreading color on even surfaces.
The score was composed by Gavin Little from ECHOLAB. Inspired by seismic and earth shifting movements, he created geological seeming sounds. By burying contact microphones underground in soil and recording vibrations, he captured breathtaking, natural sounds of shifting earth and grinding rocks. For the score he used a hybrid of organic and digital sounds, a musical progression that matched the swell of the movements from texture to texture.
"The Boros Bunker in Berlin-Mitte houses a private art collection the likes of which you’ve never seen. Topped with a glass atrium, the monumental Nazi-era bunker contains five floors of contemporary art spread across 3000 square meters."
"Built in 1941 as an air raid shelter by the Nazis, following the Second World War, it was used briefly by the Soviets to hold prisoners of war. Following the war, the bunker assumed a more benign role: a storage space first for textiles, and later for tropical fruit"
"In the early 2000s, art collectors Christian and Karen Boros were searching for a home for their 700-piece collection of contemporary art. Only in Berlin would a WWII Bunker with a sordid history seem like the perfect fit. Inside the hulking exterior, visitors travel through a series of interconnecting rooms where works from big-name artists like Ai Wei Wei and Olafur Eliasson stand alongside lesser known, but equally as intriguing emerging artists."
"Multidisciplinary artist Miguel Rothschild works across a wide variety of mediums from modified photography to glass sculpture and textiles. In several recent works the Argentine artist has captured the slow roll of ocean waves in suspended fabric installations titled Elegy and De Profundis. Both artworks seem to play with the viewer’s perception, appearing both as waves or perhaps a slice of the sky. Even the filament that holds the artwork airborne seems to glisten like rays of sun or rain. You can see more of the Berlin-based artists work on his website."
"The piece symbolizes the timelessness of the off-road legend and makes a conscious reference to the natural phenomenon of insects preserved in amber. With it, the german auto manufacturer wants to portray through an art piece that these characteristics have been handed down from generation to generation, making it the perfect symbol for the premier of the classic’s newest version."
