Solve..@..Coagula – waterdrop SUN

Artist: Solve..@..Coagula 

Technically, the music and video all done on the iphone in the course of a few hours using filmed and internally generated footage, there was no video editing in the sense of cut as i used a video mixer that switches between different videos in tandem with the beat.

I like the fact that the fast flickers induce a sort of morph between the waterdrop falling and the sunlight coming from behind the curtains and various other orifices. There is a momentarily imperceptible and very smooth gradual evolution of the abstract image in the background, punctuated by the water and lights snippets. enjoy !

Buruiană Teodor – “The Sensibility of Silence” / “Sensibilitatea tăcerii”

Artist: Buruiană Teodor 

Starting from a printing technique related to the subject of marine life we developed the concept of the project, entitled Sensitivity of Silence, which brings into an independent space a meditative atmosphere and liberation from any accumulation of feelings or words that could not be said to anyone.

Pornind de la o tehnică de imprimare legată de subiectul vietăților marine am dezvoltat conceptul proiectului de diplomă, intitulat Sensibilitatea tăcerii, ce aduce într-un spațiu independent atmosfera meditativă și eliberare de orice cumul de sentimente sau cuvinte ce nu au putut fi spuse cuiva.

Francesca Badea – Muse

Artist: Francesca Badea 

Colecția mea de lucrări numită Muse reprezintă o călătorie în subconștientul uman, o călătorie plină de emoții, iluzii și speranțe.

Pe parcursul acestei călătorii protagonistul îşi pierde speranţa, îşi pierde încrederea în sine şi decide să devină o maşinărie fără sentimente.

În momentul în care alege să nu mai fie conectat cu sentimentele sale, călătoria începe.

Astfel, pe parcusul drumului, protagonistul este manipulat şi abuzat acest lucru reprezintă o consecinţă firească apărută din cauza detaşării de emoţiile sale.

Mid Studio – Concentric Series #1

Artist: Mid Studio 

Artist bio: MID Studio is the personal project of Tânia Filipa, a very recognizable Graphic Designer and Webdesigner based in Lisbon, Portugal.

Her work embodies her abstract vision. The main influence present in all projects is minimal art. Simple, objective and catchy.

Her approach is very striking and bold creating a beautiful outcome that combines an extremely strong and formal reduction in the use of neutral colors based products. Lines, circles, triangles and squares are always part of the process, the beauty on simple elements it’s what she stands for.

solve..@..coagula – the speed of desire the horizon of the calculation industry

Artist: solve..@..coagula

no computers used. it is a live jam on a groovebox, slowly and intricately morphing almost unperceptibly through the span of half an hour and reaching points very different from those preceding, yet doing this extremely subtly, fluidly and discretely.
