This new image-based video clip about Budapest is the result of an international collaboration between the Russian TimeLab video studio and the world-famous Hungarian musician, Havasi.
“In the video we see sleepy Budapest trams crossing the Széchenyi chain bridge.. dawn over the Danube River.. the majestic layout of the city from a bird's eye view... the glittering lights of Budapest by night... and the sunset over St Stephen's Basilica... and all this juxtaposed with the astounding music of Havasi.”
The gloom ripples while something whispers,
Silence has set and coils like a ring,
Someone’s pale face glimmers
From a mire of venomous color,
And the sun, black as the night,
Takes its leave, absorbing the light.
The kinetic light installation "Duel" takes inspiration from the idea that conflict can act as a driving force. The concept of duality finds expression in the installation’s achromatic color scheme, as well as in its construction and form.
The installation’s main elements are 16 discs, all nearly flat and each with two opposite sides: one dark and one light. The opposites are in a constant state of “dueling” with each other, and all their attempts to reach one another instead result in continuous three-dimensional rotation. One recognizes in this movement the characteristic twists and turns of a coin that has been tossed into the air. The die has been cast, but the contest has not been decided yet. The discs’ movement through the air creates choreographed scenes with lights and shadows moving across space – the byproduct of a confrontation between two opposite and yet interconnected principles.
The installation was first presented on July 27-28, 2019 at the Present Perfect Festival in St. Petersburg in a separate space in the former factory. 16 motorized light elements were fixed to a 30-meter-long structure assembled in the form of a parabola and then driven in a smooth synchronous movement by custom created software.

“ARCHIREPLICA was created to help newcomers to adapt to the corporative culture and working approach of leskea through creation 3D copies of vivid examples of modern architecture. The main duties of modern architect today, on our mind, are working and studying hard and systematically, to be inspired by the best works, never give up.”
“We knew the approach of the architects of this house - Pieter Malan and Jan-Heyn Vorster (Malan Vorster Architecture Interior Design) - from the mass media, but the challenge was to show this building in a different way.
Now it is the first-person narration about one day of the house without any connotations with people living here, their fantasies and routine, just architecture and nature. “

Answer these 15 questions and you’ll gain a deeper understanding of your motivations, plus insight into how to maximize your natural gifts and face your challenges.
Budapest-based graphic designer Tamás Birinyi challenged himself to create Deep Noise portraits of leading music artists: EPROM, Flume, Takami Nakamoto, Alex Banks and Jon Hopkins. He later ran an exhibition with a proper deep noise music which inspired the cause.
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.”
