Computations is an experimental art film directed and designed by Maxim Zhestkov at Zhestkov Studio. It speculates a distant future when computation moves from the opaque ‘black boxes’ of our laptops and devices out into the world. He boldly envisions lush dynamic systems, which he compellingly describes as “floating networks of small transistors—some kind of strange computing organism.” Evoking both supercomputers and synaptic structures, the shapeshifting forms are serene and enigmatic.
The complex systems at the heart of Computations sway and undulate in perfect synchronization. Comprised of billions of particles, they are more than the sum of their parts—they are thinking machines that visualize, calculate, and communicate through coordinated movement and coloured illumination. Elements rise and fall, clusters lock into place, and there is an underlying sense of order governing the ornate spatial choreography. The forms are artfully embedded in architecture, perform in space, and demonstrate how each tiny element contributes to the construction of an elegant, emergent whole.nstag
A seascape of sculptures in a historic New York City district. In celebration of the 2019 summer season at South Street Seaport, The Seaport District approached Wade Jeffree and Leta Sobierajski (or simply creative duo Wade&Leta) to create a large scale series of sculptures to liven the district for the summer of 2019. Inspired by coral and camouflage and the languid movements of algae and seaweed, their sculptures drift and sway as if being gently pushed by an underwater current.
They wanted to emulate the feeling of drifting through an unexplored world splashed with color and pattern by creating cavernous structures that would evoke an overwhelming seascape of multi-dimensional sculptures of varying heights and colours. A material inspiration comes from the nearby boats that have been docked at the Seaport’s harbour over many years; like boats, the material will gradually weather over time, replicating the way elements shift and change our environmental landscape as the seasons progress
During two weeks in March hundreds of Clear Channel’s digital billboards in Stockholm’s Metro were transformed into a digital art exhibition where 6 artists were asked to create a piece that would portray a unique positive feeling. The art was then triggered by people's real-time emotions — through analyzing the current mood of the citizens and their use of social media throughout the day. The aim was to help people feel happier and less stressed whilst commuting.
Motion designer Jesper Lindborg was tasked to portray the feeling of being safe. “The aim was to set a familiar yet abstract tone, using tactile objects and materials. The piece is divided into 3 sections; soft bodies, foam and cloth. Each represents different layers of protection however, all share the same caring and comforting aspect. The marble statue is not only a link that illustrates the fragile and beautiful but is also humanizing and identifiable.”
