“Slow Lens is the newest piece from French artist Vincent Leroy, who often explores optics and light in his large-scale installation work. The piece is suspended from above, and a network of curved, translucent lenses distorts the viewer’s perspective. Displayed en plein air, the connected lenses slowly rotate and ofter multiplied visions of the surrounding environment. Leroy installed and documented Slow Lens in various locations around Paris, including in highway lanes that were vacant due to pollution-induced city traffic restrictions.” via @Colossal

Presenting a film inspired by thoughts from actress - Destiny Nolen (@miss_destiny_nolen). Directed by Clément Oberto, Unacceptable Behavior is a light poem about youth and loneliness. It is narrated by Georgia Feroce and guided by a subtle and sensitive score, composed by John Tejada (@johntejadaofficial). Clément Oberto created a film which follows a woman on the edge, someone who feels too much, a fragile and strong soul, always on the verge between bursting into tears or into generous and beautiful smiles.
Clément Oberto is French director and producer living in Los Angeles. His work revolves mostly around the feminine figure in music videos, commercials and Art films.
Elodie Milan is a french photographer very inspired by paintings from The Renaissance.
She sacralizes her friends and empowered them with lights from Caravage and sometimes thanks to their clothes, an other big theme in her work

Ludwig Favre travels the world documenting its wonders in a way that elevates their look, creating an almost surreal, paint-like quality to the very landmarks we probably take for granted. From the front-facing wall of a building, to national parks, the designs of universities, pristine beaches and cityscapes around the world.
Below is his latest series “Oregon”
Motion Motion is the first event dedicated to the motion design and meanwhile, opened to all audiences. One day in Nantes (FR) with conferences, installations, workshops and concerts for everyone.
nöbl created the festival 2018 whole identity and craft the trailer by playing with a distorted typography treatment:
As the motion design, the concept of this identity talks about graphic design and movement. We choose to play with the most impactful visual system "typography" and then put it literally in movement.

"Romain Laurent has a knack for creating striking photos—images you can’t un-see, the kind you just have to click on. With his work it’s often hard to tell what you’re looking at, which elements are digitally composited, and what’s real (is any of it?). “Inner Dialogue” is more obvious its trickery, but nothing here is over-edited. Less is always more and he uses just enough." via Bo7M
The Japanese design firm teamLab has announced a 2,000 square meter exhibition at La Villette, Paris. It plans on forming a vast space allowing visitors to interact with a digital world through their own bodies. Named “”Au-Delà des Limites” or “Beyond the Limits,” the showcase blurs the lines of reality and creates multiple installations representing different realms. Visitors will be able to walk through virtual waterfalls and natural wonders.
The presentation will be available from May 4 to September 4, launching right before Japonismes 2018, a cultural event marking the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and France.
teamLab (f. 2001, Tokyo, by Toshiyuki Inoko) is an interdisciplinary group of ultra-technologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, technology, design and the natural world. Rooted in the tradition of ancient Japanese Art and contemporary forms of anime, teamLab operates from a distinctly Japanese sense of spatial recognition, investigating human behavior in the information era and proposing innovative models for societal development
Alycia Rainaud is a French graphic designer and digital artist. Originally influenced and passioned about publishing and hybrid books, she started working more than one year ago as a digital artist also known by the name of Malavida, mostly experimenting with new technologies, digital painting, programming, and visual effects.
We have been following the self-initiated movement "Techism" started by New York based artist Krista Kim since the beginning. She currently exhibits in galleries and at art fairs globally in New York, Paris, Miami, Basel and Brussels, and is writing a book on the "Techism" that she hopes to have published next year. Recently she was approached by Lanvin creative director Olivier Lapidus to produce a collection based on her vivid digital artworks.
"Her digital images of LED lights informed the color palette of the clothes, which ranged from bold block colors to gradient effects on satiny coats and shimmering evening gowns. The latter were made from a specially developed silk Neoprene that conferred both structure and lightness." via WWD
Apart from this fashion debut Krista "works with teams of up to six technicians in the most advanced specialised Pleximuseum labs in New York City and Paris. To reproduce the effect of a LED screen, production is high cost and high risk, as some pieces have to go through three or four runs to achieve the desired level of perfection and quality. It took her two years of experimentation and research into the latest technology to find the labs that could accurately recreate the vibrancy and luminosity of the colors in her artworks from the screen to the large format on Pleximuseum she required, as they had never before used pigments to the same level as she had been using and certain colors cannot be produced. She is the only artist who uses this particular kind of technology in these materials, style and scale. Requiring from six months to a year to complete just one piece, sometimes up to two years, and two months for production, prices of her artworks range from €38,000 to €85,000" via Forbes
"Entitled ‘Cité de l’Océan et du Surf’, the museum’s design is based on the dual concept of “under the sky” / “under the sea”. Hosting a public plaza and gardens surrounding the museum’s main exhibition space, the complex merges landscape design and architecture, bridging the building to the ocean nearby. Cité de l’Océan et du Surf was named Public Building of the Year by the 2011 Emirates Glass LEAF Awards." via iGNANT
"Ada Sokol sums up her work with two words: “innovation, sleekness”. A chance encounter with the Paris-based, Polish-born artist and 3D designer’s work quickly had us hooked and digging deep into her portfolio rich with commissioned and personal projects. With a flair for 3D rendering which is so photorealistic, it left us wondering where the constructed ended and the real began, Ada is a future talent destined for great things." from It's Nice That interview
