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.

Random Studio create the the Infinity Room, where one could discover the shoe’s features by actually wearing them in action. Amid a pulsing light- and soundscape, and fully surrounded by mirrors, the athlete-for-the-moment ran on a real treadmill into what seemed to be infinity. Automatically triggering cameras, runners are shot from three different angles: front, feet and back. As a bonus, one left with a personalized kaleidoscopic video – created in real time and delivered within seconds afterwards to their mailbox.
The Light Barrier series by studio Kimchi and Chips create volumetric drawings in the air using hundreds of calibrated video projections. These light projections merge in a field of fog to create graphic objects that animate through physical space as they do in time.
Designed by British architectural firms, Foster + Partners and Heatherwick Studio, the 420,000 square meter development includes two 180-meter-high landmark towers, containing offices, a boutique hotel, and a wide variety of luxury retail spaces. At the heart of the scheme is the arts and cultural center with a flexible façade that can be changed to dramatically alter the look of the building.
The front of Fosun Foundation cultural and arts centre consists of three layers of bronze tubes, visually similar to bamboo, moving vertically around the structure, altering the shape of the building. The design was reportedly inspired by traditional Chinese theatres.
This spring in the Stockholm City Hall we presented the audiovisual performance "Cognition" developed by our studio in collaboration with the composer and pianist Nikola Melnikov and Asko.
The installation of "Cognition" is an expression of striving for the perfect shape. Everything can be perfect–whether it is a geometric figure or a person. The experience of perfection exists where people open themselves in external icons.

Jap Mikel is a freelance illustrator and designer based in the Philippines. He has illustrated for both local books and magazine editorials.
He calls his art style “geometric impressionism,” where shape and color are subtly arranged to create light and shadow, depth and movement. His works are inspired by Philippine history, folklore, and pop culture.

Only 25% of the deep seas have been explored. These unknown territories are a real playground for imagination. Sometimes terrifying, but always fascinating, these living beings remain mysteries for scientists. Once the lights are off, the fishes reveal a bit of their secrets, irradiating the room with bioluminescence. The installation is like a surreal encounter with the most inaccessible creatures on earth.
Local photographer Laurent Kronental has created ‘Souvenir d’un Futur’ since 2011. A series of stunning photographs documenting these neglected communities and capturing what he calls ‘the poetry of ageing environments’. He also explores the idea of the aspirational ‘utopia’ design contrasted with the neglected state they are in today, by consciously conveying the impression of towns that have been left almost empty.
