Garden of Emoji Delights
Earth
FILE SAO PAULO 2015
Los emoticonos pueden ser algo más que una forma de animar tus conversaciones digitales, sobre todo para la artista de nuevos medios Carla Gannis. Con El jardín de las delicias de los emoticonos [The Garden of Emoji Delights en inglés] Gannis reconstruye el famoso tríptico de El Bosco adaptándolo a la era digital, experimentando con nuevos modos de redefinir la identidad y sus formas de representación, tanto virtuales como físicas.

From, the Future
The art is about waiting, something the entire world population knows since the onslaught of Covid-19. The title was also inspired by a dream where I told a scientist I was from the future and he believed me. My interpretation of the dream relates to my interest in the luminous thoughts of the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi, he clearly describes what our souls really are, beautiful, sacred, beyond time. I am fascinated by the existential impermanence of beauty. Beauty offers us a deep connection to the experience of life. The animation consists of cut flowers continuously falling from the sky, it can be seen by looking up to the ceiling. The title infers the signature on the note of a gift.

Soumaya Museum

Museum buildings tend to be conceived either for maximum functionality – acting as neutral containers for art – or as iconic structures that represent a city at a particular historic moment. The Museo Soumaya was designed as both: a sculptural building that is unique and contemporary, yet one able to house a collection of international paintings, sculptures, and decorative objects dating from the fourteenth century to the present.The exterior of the building is an amorphous shape perceived differently from every angle, reflecting the diversity of the collection inside. The building’s distinctive façade is made of hexagonal aluminum modules facilitating its preservation and durability. The shell is constructed with steel columns of different diameters, each with its own geometry and shape, creating non-linear circulation paths for the visitor. The building encompasses 20,000 square meters of exhibition space divided among five floors, as well as an auditorium, café, offices, gift shop, and multipurpose lobby. The top floor is the largest space in the museum, with its roof suspended from a cantilever that allows in natural daylight.

PETRA CORTRIGHT

HELL_TREE

Petra Cortright est une artiste Internet qui réalise des vidéos, des animations gif et des images fixes. Sa page d’accueil ressemble à une page html datée avec un tas de smileys et une liste de son travail: travail authentique, expérimental et nostalgique avec beaucoup de paillettes, d’étincelles, de collages et de personnages faisant des images. Tout au long du site Web, il y a des animations de souris amusantes, par exemple des étincelles qui suivent votre pointeur lorsque vous vous déplacez sur l’écran. Une autre chose intéressante est un cadre qui est attaché à votre pointeur afin que vous puissiez placer le cadre sur un portrait. Cortright a étudié à la Parsons School of Design de New York et au California College of the Arts de San Francisco. Aujourd’hui, elle vit et travaille en Californie. Elle a exposé à l’international dans des galeries telles que Gloria Maria Gallery (Milan) et Spencer Brownston (New York) entre autres. Récemment, Cortright a exposé avec sa série SO WET à la Preteen Gallery de Mexico.

Prodige de la mode, l’artiste plasticienne défie la nature et les lois de la physique en donnant vie à des sculptures sur lesquelles l’espace n’a pas d’emprise. Façonnés dans des matériaux innovants (polyamide, rhodoïd, Magiflex, plexiglas…), aussi étonnants qu’inquiétants, les créations futuristes d’Iris van Herpen relèvent d’une approche expérimentale de la couture où la virtuosité technique se conjugue à l’intelligence artificielle d’une technologie digitale (la stéréo-lithographie).

FLORA 2

The animation in FLORA is generated by overlapping sine waves that travel through a string of lines. This wave principle often appears in nature when energy is transmitted through a medium like water, air or simply a rope. It can also be observed in the locomotion of animals and human-beings, in which kinetic energy is transmitted successively through joints.
The FLORA algorithm of is based on the discovery that a simple system of rotating lines can create endless variations of abstract shapes – ranging from curved harmonious lines to edgy and chaotic patterns. The resulting aesthetics combine computational accuracy with an organic playfulness, and tend to trigger diverse associations in the mind of the viewer.

Horizon
In amongst the rings of confusion
Silencing the thought powers one by one
It seems all so incredible
Our own ability to confuse – to sacrifice
To enlighten like a shakespearian play
We foolish and happily hold on to sanity
While all around the pushing feelings
The twisting and turning of our hearts
Displaying an almost indefinable strength
Of purpose – a reason a reason a reason
Where no reasons seems to exist
Yet, as in a vision, a voice transcending
All our imagination, jewel of life
Guiding light heralding a joyous new dawn
Clear and gifted time
Divine nature – super nature
The supreme gift of knowledge and space
In this cacophony of life
Peace will come

In early 2011 I was exploring the relations of geometry, nature and the human being in a series of 25 pictures that I called ”Fractal Experience”. This is part two – continuing the exploration of geometric shapes, patterns, and fractals with an added element: space-time. This time I’ve worked in 3D and produced a set of animated looping gif’s.
I’ve limited each animation to at most 48 frames, most are around 10-15 frames – to keep the file size small and to maximize the creativity with in these frames.

Début 2011, j’explorais les relations de la géométrie, de la nature et de l’être humain dans une série de 25 images que j’ai appelées «Expérience fractale». Il s’agit de la deuxième partie – poursuivre l’exploration des formes géométriques, des motifs et des fractales avec un élément supplémentaire: l’espace-temps. Cette fois, j’ai travaillé en 3D et produit un ensemble de gifs en boucle animés.
J’ai limité chaque animation à 48 images au maximum, la plupart se situent entre 10 et 15 images – pour garder la taille du fichier petite et maximiser la créativité avec ces images.

Trying to understand what makes a Pollock a Pollock has prompted any number of artists to try out his technique (for reference, see the Saatchi Art “Inspired by Jackson Pollock” collection). Count Yoshi Sodeoka among them. Though none of his Pollock GIFs look or feel exactly like a Pollock, there’s still that goal of unabated movement, of which a GIF can capture better, and perhaps more so, than a strip of paint.

FLORA
L’animation dans FLORA est générée par des ondes sinusoïdales superposées qui traversent une chaîne de lignes. Ce principe d’onde apparaît souvent dans la nature lorsque l’énergie est transmise à travers un milieu comme l’eau, l’air ou simplement une corde. Elle peut également être observée dans la locomotion des animaux et des êtres humains, dans laquelle l’énergie cinétique est transmise successivement par les articulations.
L’algorithme FLORA de est basé sur la découverte qu’un simple système de lignes rotatives peut créer des variations infinies de formes abstraites – allant des lignes courbes harmonieuses aux motifs énervés et chaotiques. L’esthétique qui en résulte associe une précision de calcul à un aspect ludique organique et a tendance à déclencher diverses associations dans l’esprit du spectateur.

The images in H2O take advantage of water’s unique properties- light, clarity, buoyancy, and reflectivity-to create a delightfully serene and otherworldly aesthetic. At once uncanny, lithe, athletic, and mysterious, the figures in Schatz’s photographs transform the pool into studio and stage.

Arthur Mamou Mani, a prominent Architect based in London and runs Mamou Mani Ltd., had the honour of building the Burning Man Temple for the Burning Man Festival 2018. A temple made from completely eco friendly materials, that stands 30 metres high, 60 metres in width, and that will burn on the last day of the festival with hundreds of thousands standing in silence as it burns.
To achieve this, Arthur needed to raise £500k of Angel investment to bring his temple to life and gift it to the world. This meant for the crowdfunding video we had to take a more emotional approach, targeting the Burning Man community and touching people on a personal level to spiritually show the importance of the temple to one another around it.
