Mary Rizk: Keine Perfektion

Lebanese artist Mary Rizk‘s industrial design sculpture is a reflection on proportion and “perfect” facial symmetry. It was inspired by Renaissance artwork and Leonardo Da Vinci’s studies of the human form. Its purpose is to raise questions about self-image, and instill a sense of discomfort and curiosity in the audience. We’re certainly curious about whether this unique body mod is wearable and if wearing it would fool facial-recognition software?

Riccardo Albertini and Marco Goran Romano

Epileptics be warned, this short video, called Hotel Trip, packs quite the punch. Motion designer Riccardo Albertini took an illustration by Marco Goran Romano and threw it into After Effects to make a simple drawing of a hotel rapidly come to life. Also, the soundtrack by chiptune artist underScore is a great complement to the speedy edit. If you like this style, then you should check out the animations of Chinese Creator Ray Lei.

Simon Cooper: Various 3D visuals

UK designer Simon Cooper may build digital stairways to nowhere in some of his virtual architectural designs, but we’re very intrigued by this double helix-inspired structure/building. Can you imagine working in one of those glass bubbles or sliding down one of the DNA strands à la Carsten Holler’s multi-level slide?
