SCRIPTURA VITAE by Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic

If you bought our latest DCMAG magazine you might recognise the maestro of black typography and graphic force London-based and Argentina-rased Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic. We also featured his latest motion video "SCRIPTURA VITAE" on our interactive magazine pages.

"Mestrovic's latest venture is an ambitious three-part journey into the unknown that showcases Lex's haunting ritualistic calligraphy, alongside stunningly choreographed Japanese Butoh performances set to a score which features original music by the Grammy Nominated DIPLO. The film stars famed Japanese actress Miho Nikaido, best known for her role in the cult-classic and previously banned film Tokyo Decadence which was written and directed by lauded novelist Ryu Murakami. The effects in the film are visually striking, combining modern compositing with in-camera painting to devise something wholly unique." says Souris

Good Deeds Fair mapping

Russian mapping masters from Sila Sveta did it again. This time it was a New Year visual fairy tale for kids "Good Deeds Fair" mapped on Victory Memorial in Moscow sponsored by monopolist bank (it's really strange when a customer in Russia can't stay with only a logo at the end and just be a sponsor but not a main hero dressed in corporate colours and a savior in this fairy tale).
