Onformative’s true/false is a kinetic sculpture composed of arrays of circular black metal segments set in mechanical columns. Interlocking and rotating around fluorescent light tubes. On or off, true or false. Some entities have the property of being committed to adopt either one of the two states and switch between them. This sculpture explores what lies in between these fundamental states in order to make change tangible.
Hype Cycle is a series of futurist films exploring human-machine collaboration, combining performance and emerging technologies.
These human-machine interactions from Universal Everything are inspired by the Hype Cycle trend graphs produced by Gartner Research, a valiant attempt to predict future expectations and disillusionments as new technologies come to market. The first film in this series is Smart Matter. It builds on the studio’s past experiments with motion studies, imagining a new form of collaborative interface for improvised modelling. More Hype Cycle films coming soon.

The Expression Wall is a playful surface that allows you to express yourself in many different ways. You can engage from a distance as your body movement triggers colorful animations. In expression mode, you can move abstract color around with your hands. In drawing mode, you are prompted with a question that you can answer in written or drawn form.
This unique touch surface was created with 100 procedurally generated slats of plexiglas which are backlit by LED light. The natural flex of the plexiglas provides a surprising and delightful surface for drawing.
The Expression Wall is an ongoing installation at Deloitte University gives attendees a way to express themselves. Each expression is stored in an ever growing gallery that reflects the moods, opinions and interests of D.U. attendees.

The passage of time affects everybody but rarely do we reflect on what this means. Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi created a collection of images taken over a period of time on subjects ranging from the natural world to mundane everyday events. These images are printed onto transparent film which are then arranged next to each other on their sides so that viewers can see through them. This creates a poetic effect of events unfolding in front of your eyes, albeit with spaces in between, inviting viewers to fill in the gaps with their imagination. An inspiringly beautiful and contemplative work of art.
The stunning works of Mikael Takacs. A marbler based in Sweden who uses pipettes to distribute acrylic paint across the canvas to create his subjects, which he then distorts by dragging the paint around using various tools, such as sticks and combs.
He combines the classic abstract expression of marbling with concrete figures. This results in intricate patterns that forms his subjects. Variations of this technique has been around for hundreds of years, but in spite of that, his pieces are often mistaken for digital art.
