Most commonly known for his work on the latest Channel4, Marcel is very talented CG and motion designer.
Leo Villareal's seeks to create his own sets of rules and central to his work is the element of chance. The artist's goal is to create a rich environment in which emergent behavior can occur without a preconceived outcome. He is an active participant in the process through the careful selection of compelling sequences. These selections are then further refined and layered through simple operations such as addition, subtraction and multiplication. Parameters like opacity, speed and scale are also manipulated through the artist's custom software, creating compositions that are displayed in random order and for a random amount of time. Ultimately, the visual manifestation of code in light is at the core of Villareal's interest.
Infinity’ is an immersive environment project by Refik Anadol, a media artist and director originally from in Istanbul, Turkey. This project is an integral part of artist’s ongoing ‘Temporary Immersive Environment Experiments’ which is a research on audio/visual installations by using the state called immersion which is the state of consciousness where an immersant’s awareness of physical self is transformed by being surrounded in an engrossing environment; often artificial, creating a perception of presence in a non-physical world.
In this project ‘infinity’ chosen as a concept,a radical effort to deconstruct the framework of this illusory space and transgress the normal boundaries of the viewing experience to set out to transform the conventional flat cinema projection screen into a three dimensional kinetic and architectonic space of visualisation by using contemporary algorithms.

Catherine Aitken Studio designs furniture and interior products. With a relationship to pattern, their functional design outcomes frequently leave space for arranging and rearranging.
A singular material does not define the practice – typically they work with wood, textile and ceramic, playing with combinations and imposing limitation during the development process. Inspired by the hands-on processes of textiles, the discipline in which Catherine trained, ideas are tested real-scale in an effort to reveal the innate qualities of the chosen material.
Transition, fluidity and movement have become important to their work returning time and again to the moments that exist between open and closed, producing products that quietly encourage interaction and establish a poetic relationship with their surrounding environment.
Created by TEM in collaboration with Vincent de Belleval, the team were asked to create something unique and ambitious for Marcus Wainwright’s first show since the departure of David Neville. The team developed a method to create a virtual environment around a catwalk, to tell a story based around Thom Yorke’s ‘Coloured Candy’ using a dynamic content system piped through a room sized inverted zoetrope, created from 2.5m tall, 0.5 tonne, 60rpm motorised beacons, X3.
As the track begins the beacons awaken with a familiar voice, reminiscent of OK Computer-era ‘fitter happier’ text-to-speech reading from The Universal Sigh, the newspaper that accompanied Radiohead’s 2011 album The King Of Limbs.

Created by ART+COM, Kinetic Rain is an artwork designed for Terminal 1 at Singapore’s Changi Airport. The kinetic sculpture adds a contemplative element to the lively transit space of the departure hall.
Kinetic Rain consists of two parts installed above the terminal’s two central escalators. Each symmetrical element is composed of 608 copper-plated aluminium drops. The drops are connected by steel wires to computer-controlled motors that raise and lower them with precision.
The two elements move in dialogue through a fifteen-minute animated sequence, evolving from abstract to figurative three-dimensional forms. At times the two parts move together in unison, at other times they mirror, complement or follow each other.

NEVERCREW is a swiss based artists duo composed by Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni. They work together since 1996.
In the recent years NEVERCREW undertook a research that doesn’t aim at forcedly channeling reflections in a precise stylistic and formal way, but rather to find a new language that allows to follow them, deepen them and share them; and especially that it’s also a practical and visible demonstration of that.

A Japanese company called ALE Co is bidding to handle the pyrotechnics at the opening ceremony of Japan's 2020 Olympics, and the key to its pitch is that it isn’t just planning on using fireworks like everyone else, it wants to fill the sky with hundreds of colorful shooting stars. If it gets the nod, this display would be visible from far outside Tokyo, up to 100 kilometers (62 miles) away. A meteor of such high apparent brightness would be potentially dangerous, but the company says that’s not a concern with its chemical payload.

The simple geometric structure of the audiovisual installation Convergence is formed by LED light rods embedded in the industrial atmosphere of an eight-meter tunnel made from three storage containers. The continuous repetition of the “X” creates the staff of a choreography of light, as twenty-three blue Xes form a minimalist corridor of light that plays with depth perception. This X motif in its representation evoking a variety of associations such as the mathematical symbol for multiplication or the designation of a location on a map.
