Meanwhile by Stephen McNally

“Meanwhile” follows four characters traversing a city, each lost in their own separate worlds, trapped in their memories, regrets and frustrations. “Meanwhile” uses bold colour schemes and fragments of narratives to examine empathy in urban insularity.

Vitreous // Robert Seidel

Film: Robert Seidel • Music: Nikolai von Sallwitz.

The nine virtual sculptures underlying vitreous resulted from experimental setups by Robert Seidel for generating three-dimensional clusters of fibrous refractions, as well as the gravitational lensing of different volumetric and chromatic densities. Singular elements gravitate towards each other, accumulating in a gigantic sculptural system, where each entity exists with its own visual axis and vanishing point. The impalpable luminous formations create prismatic interactions between the ridges and plateaux of the main colours floating in front of the infinite violet background.

Limits of Human Technology

Where are the limits of human technology? And can we somehow avoid them?

This is where quantum computers become very interesting.
