Swedish electronic musician Galleriet recently released 'Allting är som vanligt' (which translates into 'Everything is as usual' in English). The song is the third single from her forthcoming debut album, 'Romantic Gestures'. In the music video, we journey through a series of stop motion vignettes created by the artist herself, exploring themes of mortality, sexuality, animal instincts and the passing of time.
In wanderings through the labyrinths of dreams and realities, costumes, faces and eras can change. Together with us travels an observer, our only companion being faithful both in forgetting ourselves and in awakening. This silent witness hovers over the paradigm of "good and evil" all the time reminding that the world is not as simple as it seems.

‘Volumes’ is Nick West’s first solo exhibition. Taking place at ONCA, the main installation is entitled ‘A-Z²’. This is his most recent in a series of works on the theme of silence. ‘A-Z²’ is created by recycling the physical elements of a previous artwork. In its present arrangement, the materials have been reassembled into 26 books, each approximating a different letter of the alphabet. Every page is blank but has been cut, folded, glued and sewn before being presented in a cyclical form. ‘A-Z²’ is a perpetual alphabet or a way to say everything and nothing at once.

The branding of Samurai Japanese Cuisine in Yerevan is based on the brand concept of samurai fish characters ready to scarify themselves to serve the customers the freshest sushi and other delicious food from Japanese cuisine.
"Our objective was to create a new brand identity that would attract new customers, especially young people and opinion leaders who might be shocked by the identity. "
The team came up with the idea of samurai fish who commit hara-kiri to satisfy their Emperors, i.e. their customers. This unusual Japanese ritual and the peculiarities of Japanese cuisine inspired the designers to create four characters of self-sacrificing fishes; TUNA, SHRIMP, OCTOPUS and the CONGER.
A simple typographic solution has been given to the logotype of the brand. A Latin font was stylized to create a visual connection with Japanese calligraphy and to pass on a taste of Japan. Blue has been chosen as the dominant color for the brand identity mostly to convey the idea that here the fish is fresh and organic. The dark colors black and grey are to emphasize the premium quality and price aspect of the brand.
To emotionally connect with the visitors and communicate the message of self-sacrificing fishes we created stories; the philosophical thoughts of the master fishes.
These philosophical thoughts were also translated into Japanese language and together with the characters’ illustrations found their special spots in the form of canvases on the walls of the restaurant.
There is also a tearoom in the Samurai Japanese Cuisine used for tea ceremonies for which the team of designers created a beautiful illustration inspired by the famous print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” by the Japanese artist Hokusai. The same illustration was used to create a packaging design of tea containers to be placed in the tearoom.
Being unbelievable fans of sushi, our team knew the importance of impressing customers with unique product packaging. So they designed a special delivery box that contains sushi and rolls, chopsticks, wasabi, gari and soy sauce – a true paradise for sushi lovers.
On other printed materials such as the menu or the business card a fish squama has been used as another design element of the brands visual identity.
