Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
3D graphics, even if it never entered the list of available tools for every user, has had an important aesthetic role in the magma of transformations that stormed the nineties. One of the peculiarities of the work of Correnti Magnetiche (an etherogenous group lead by Mario Canali) is its focus on the imaginary. Among his vast production we can find many computer graphic video, that navigates through our historical and personal cultural memory. These productions has been finally digitized, and now it shows his crossed references to Escher and the surrealism, but it still compose autonomously an oniric narrative, often purely symbolic, by always emotionally related electronic sounds. The chimera of Virtual Reality and the creation of 3D worlds, now technically evaporated, here are sublimated in a continuos (retro’) stimulus of our visual categories. Known elements and forms, filled with pictures, fluctuates as memory chunks, juxtaposing on different conceptual levels, thanks also to the absolute freedom of positioning objects in space.
