Multidisciplinary artist Luke Jerram has created several exacting 23-foot replicas of the moon, which are currently touring the world as Museum of the Moon. The lunar project has been installed in public spaces ranging from China and Finland to the United Arab Emirates and Australia, and is accompanied by music from composer Dan Jones. Locations vary and include indoor and outdoor spaces as well as festivals, to intentionally alter the interpretation and experience of the project for viewers around the world.

Mike Winkelmann known as Beeple is doing a strong digital artwork a day. Literally every day for the last 11 years (sic!). We believe he has no time to collect them chronologically but sometimes it happens, like this time with November 2017 pack, available for appreciations on Behance. (We were happy to had Beeple involved in our Digital Decade exhibition last year where he recreated 3D worlds in VR Chat based on designs he selected from own competition ran with Kingdeluxe Label)
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.
Just in time when “Quantified Self” trend is trying to excuse the brutal data harvest from leading smart accessories - here come the solution to take an ease in sharing all of your personal details (including blood cells rate) to the unknown. Welcome award-winning minimalist analogue watches created by the fellows of our creative industry - Anton Repponen and his Brooklyn based studio ANTON&IRENE
After winning the Red Dot Award in 2010 for best concept, and many years of creating digital products for a variety of clients such as The Met, USAToday, Spotify, Balenciaga, Google and Netflix, Anton & Irene decided to make the leap into product design and produce the analog NU:RO watch themselves.
The watch has two dials, one with hours at the top and the other with minutes at the bottom. When they rotate the current time is shown inside the hourglass. The watch has been manufactured in a limited edition of 500, and can be purchased through the studio’s Kickstarter campaign until October 10th, after which, they will be gone forever.
The studio has also collaborated with the artist Shantell Martin for a limited edition release of 10 original hand drawn artworks.
Kim Leutwyler (@carlosbob) is a visual artist based in Sydney, Australia. She works in a variety of media including painting, installation, ceramics, print media and drawing. Kim’s current work takes its form in paintings dealing with images of beauty, gender and Queer-identity. She has come to focus on painting as a medium because of its primarily masculine history in the western art canon. By entering into the modernist painting field Kim hopes to destabilize gender borders just as LGBTQ artists have been doing since the 70’s and earlier. Her artwork has been exhibited in multiple galleries throughout the United States and Australia.
Talented marble artist Fabio Viale creates an upgrade versions of classic masterpieces aligning them to the modern society state of things (and its current meltdown with gangster culture). His tattooed marbles are the pieces to think about the contemporary life priorities and “what’s going to left after us”
This innovative art project by Leni Dothan was prompted by the desire to raise a stronger awareness towards the invisible enemy that is air pollution. Together with the Chemistry department of UCL, Leni created these photographs on 200 Portland stones using London’s air pollution
Texts by Marine Tanguy MTArt Agency
This project is a perfect conceptual and chemical symbiosis between science and art, aiming for awareness and a response to air pollution through public art in between London and Portland Isle. During the b-side biennale, the artist will transform the Verne High Angle Battery into a rehab centre for air polluted sculptures made in London.
These sculptures will be the outcome of an ongoing research based collaboration with Dr. Raul Quesada-Cabrera, expert in photochemistry at UCL, prof. Andrea Sella and Sana Ali. Together, they developed a pollution-reactive material in UCL’s Chemistry lab.
Leni Dothan will bring these polluted sculptures to Portland for them to be cleaned while on display at the Verne High Angle Battery for nine days. The audience will witness the colour changes on the sculptures as the artworks react to a healthier context. The sculptures will become a powerful tool for public awareness towards the growing issue that is air pollution, especially in cities.

Using traditional materials and techniques to achieve a digital effect, Japanese artist Toshiya Masuda makes this cool ceramic pixel art.
"Japanese artist Toshiya Masuda builds pixelated objects out of clay, piecing together sculptural tennis shoes, fried eggs, and baseballs that look as if they have been pulled directly from a video game. By designing his works to appear digital, Masuda provides a physical quality to computer or television-based images. The combination of ceramics and digitized objects allows the artist to blur the line between what is real and virtual, an increasingly common experience in our present age."
Talented Russian media artist Maxim Zhestkov released his long-waited film "Optics". It's an experimental art film exploring the behavior of artificial light and color in digital environments. Blending architectural gallery space with computer-generated digital glass sculptures, we encounter animated refractions, chromatic aberrations, colourful reflection and other conditions which are impossible in reality. A series of tests and explorations guides us through different optical conditions of the bright and colorful digital universe.
The film was initiated as an experimental series of tests in Zhestkov.Studio. After some research, the studio realized that the beauty and visual power of these explorations could be transformed into an art film rather than remain a series of tests. For a couple of months, programmers and artists at Zhestkov.Studio developed different approaches and played with the infinite visual possibilities opened up by refractions and reflections with sound design by Marcelo Baldin.

Graphic designer Marcel Lisboa, living and working in São Paulo/Brazil, uses digital means to create his utterly unique illustrations; all of which expressions of private worlds that reveal a distinct story and invite endless contemplation.
Through digital collage the artist reflects his key inspirations: the Renaissance, the Baroque and Neoclassicism. But by shunning the usual genealogy of the Dadaists, Lisboa creates an unique aesthetic based on stunning draftsmanship and evocative scenography.

Conceptual artist Alan Belcher explores an intersection between photography and sculpture, creating artworks he defines as ‘photo-objects’. His ‘_____.jpg’ study approaches the jpeg icon with a manner of directness and humour.
The installation shots from Belcher’s exhibition ‘Preview’ at Le Consortium assemble over one hundred ‘_____.jpg’ pieces in various layouts, causing a visual glitch between the gallery’s white wall and a folder of jpeg previews on a computer screen.
After Fabergé, is a personal project and ongoing exhibition of five digital prints created by artist Jonathan Monaghan, to run a half year at The Walters opening in November
After Fabergé is a series of five prints which transform an iconic symbol of status and wealth into uncanny objects composed of modern furniture, computer parts, and historic architecture. Set on stark white backgrounds and rendered with perfect glossy surfaces, the imagined forms appear almost like a commercial product with an eerily ambiguous function. The eggs are meticulously crafted in virtual space and are presented as highly-detailed, large photographic prints
