This beautiful film was done by my creative friends, see more on “Interview Magazine”.
Remixing archetypal visual concepts, we take a journey with sonic creator, MeLo-X, through space and time. Paying homage to Sci-Fi films and classics by Jean-Luc Godard, “Handle It” combines the vernacular of Hip Hop and La Nouvelle Vague to take the artist’s vision to a new form of expression.
“The graphic designer as alchemist” is Corbin Mahieu’s masterproject at Sint-Lucas Ghent. It’s a sect of graphic designers and artists who try to explain and represent their vision on alchemy/occultism and graphic design and exhibit these results.
Let’s use alchemy as a metaphor for graphic design. Alchemists are trying to create golden designs/images and are trying to communicate only within the group of insiders. Each of these alchemists use alchemy in their own way. By mixing and joining their substances in one big flask, they create the potential of really showing something to the profane world. Without explaining the secrets of the Great Work and Alchemy itself, the viewers and the creators find themselves enriched and therefore could this experiment lead to the alchemical ‘golden’ end result.
Turning the city of The Hague into a Blue Light District. Taking the lights of THX: The Hague Int’l as an inspiration, LUST created an identity and theme for 2008’s TodaysArt festival. The program booklet is ordered chronologically, using a gradient to indicate the time of day (light to dark). This way, also the edge of the book gives a hint where information can be found. Also the program and editorial pieces are integrated seamless because that run simultaneously. Giant lights that light up the buildings in the Grote Marktstraat, one of the main streets in the city center of The Hague. The buildings are used as pixels, creating an enormous effect of depth in the street. Controlled by a simple Processing script and allowing for interaction with passers by.
