POLYPTYCH from Damien elroy Vignaux on Vimeo.

POLYPTYCH dives in a constant zoom-in in the modern status of fashion models as icons in a society of image where symbols and references are demultiplicated until they loose their meaning.
The dynamic collage-artworks mix codes and compositions from religious imagery, classical and neo-classical architecture, with strong natural apocalyptic background textures and paint strokes.
The compositions also include deconstructed alphabets sampling from the model’s names, depicting the loss of identity that occurs when the girl becomes a cherished image, an icon, rather than a singular person.
We abstract ourselves in worshipping images of beauty.

Urban Calligraphy “Lucid Dream” from DESIGNWARS on Vimeo.

"Lucid Dreaming" is an act of rebellion. The dreamer gains control over his actions and thoughts. The subconscious becomes conscious, dreams become a memory.

The Lucid Dreamer is like a magician, imposing willpower and constantly struggling with himself, to master his skills and gain full control of the dream, thus becoming the ruler of the maze instead of a single puppet in the paradox black hole of perception.

In life, in creation, there are times that everything seems pointless and dark. Shadows of doubt are casted upon each and every soul, trying to bring them down and enslave them.

But Simon knows and likes to remind us, that gaining control of your actions, gaining control of your life, these are the first steps of making your dreams come true.

Be a lucid dreamer. Take control. Be a rebel.

The Man Who Turned Paper Into Pixels from Delve on Vimeo.

A brand new video essay from delve.tv

It was the change that no-one saw coming: the idea that we could take a book, a painting or a song and send it through cables and wires and even thin air to the other end of the world - and it would be identical on the other side. But this idea underpins everything about the Information Age we live in.

How did we make such a mind bending transition into the digital world? And how does it work? It turns out it’s all based on a concept that is surprisingly beautiful in its simplicity. This short video essay explores what that idea is and tells you about the man who figured it all out.

Computers are everywhere and control almost every aspect of our lives. In the next 6 minutes you’ll find out how they really work.

It gets said a lot, but this time we mean it - Riders literally going bigger than ever before. Athletes from around the world showed up to hit one of the greatest big air setups in wake history. When it was all said and done Dominik Gührs of Germany took the top spot in front of Nico von Lerchenfeld (2nd) and Daniel Grant (3rd) to round out the podium.

A Day In The Life - Clark & Timms from P & Co on Vimeo.

P&Co present “A Day In The Life - Clark & Timms”

This editorial video follows the two founding brand owners of P&Co in “A Day In The Life”. The film follows Clark & Timms throughout their day, meeting with clients & web designers. We watch them go through sketches for new designs. Meetings with models discussing new collection pieces together.While keeping the profiles of Clark & Timms a bit of a mystery.

We wanted to give you an insight into what we do to try and make P&Co grow into one of the UK’s leading fashion brands.

The video holds a deeper meaning that entwines with our latest collection “The Founders Collection”. We are two different people with different ideas and styles but when we collectively put our ideas together, something quite interesting and special unfolds. That’s why P&Co works.

Whilst our personalities run through the entirety of P&Co, it has only been in recent collections that our names have become key features in certain designs. This collection sees us take pride in our our own family heritage and create a simplistic line to celebrate that. All of the pieces in the collection use the phrase ‘Clark & Timms’, for us this was and is the building blocks and a solid foundation for P&Co. With a joint love of hand drawn typography this collection sees us adorn this skill and style in our designs.

New Zealand Roadtrip | Timelapse BTS from Martin Heck | Timestorm Films on Vimeo.

A road trip and behind the scenes video from the production of my timelapse series about New Zealand. It shows the daily snapshots aside the magnificent timelapse shots seen in the series. If its just the view out of the car, encounters with animals or just some shots from my phone I hope it can show some of the daily happenings which come to pass.
I drove over 15000km in 4 month. Slept nearly every night in another place. Shot over 100000 raw images, over 400 videos and all in all about 3TB of footage.
It had the best time in my life so far and hope to share a bit of the fun with this video.
