The Hamburg-based NobleNorse Studio specializes in what they call "contemporary design services," a term that becomes apparent in firm's latest personal project, Holographic glitch. Created with the support of Glitché, the so-called series of "Self-initiated studies creating glitched and destroyed digital art based on holographic material," as the artists describe it look at once like the illusory smartphone images of Simon Pyle, Radiohead's Kinect-based video, and Peter Saville's iconic Joy Division album art. While details on the project are sparse, the moiré effect-inducing themselves are fascinating imaginings of how light effects like iridescence can be represented on-screen.
