Morten Lasskogen, aka Moteh, is a Denmark-based photographer and 3D artist who crafts surreal compositions—balancing color, light, and perspective to create scenes that aim to elicit emotion and feeling.
I think I’ll care about you forever is an audiovisual work capturing a voice message from a man longing for someone he cares deeply about.
The music, composed by Ross K, and the scene of the lit and then extinguished candle accompany the voice message to visually express both the emotional and physical phone connection once had but now lost.
Joseba Elorza, aka MiraRuido, is an illustrator and animator from Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, creating impossible worlds and implausible situations that evoke feelings of uneasiness or disbelief.
Inside Worlds - No. 4 is the 4th and final piece of the "Inside Worlds" series, where Joseba brings viewers on a journey across different inner landscapes of the mind.
There are neither oases nor palm trees in this restrained desert. The only trace of hope is a familiar voice that sings a beautiful melody in the distance to guide you like a lighthouse in this sea of sand.
Rosalvo Melo is a London-based motion designer and musician exploring his artistic vision and creative expression through personal projects and music which coalesce into vibrant narrative animation loops.
Imbue. is the last piece of his genesis series, “memories,” expressing the memories we choose to reflect on, reminding us of where we’ve been, what we’ve accomplished, and who we’ve become.
By taking the time to consider our memories, we can learn more about ourselves and grow into the person we aspire to be.
Daniel Harper is a UK-based designer and digital artist focusing on 3D design and particle simulations. His work varies from geometric design to organic arrangements involving natural elements.
Construction 009 is Daniel’s 9th piece of his “CONSTRUCTIONS” series, exploring rhythm, nature, light, and environment. A dance/electronic track accompanies the audiovisual work, which provides an auditory element anchoring the visual tempo.
John D. Boswell, aka Melodysheep, is a filmmaker, composer, VFX artist, and editor from the Pacific Northwest exploring the intersection of science, art, music, and storytelling.
Life is Your Canvas is an homage to the man who taught many that making art can be for anybody and whose awe at the natural world flowed equally from his paintings and his persona: Bob Ross.
