The Green Dot Films and Nexus represented duo
Minivegas collaborated with onedotzero industries and the illustrious Company on creating audio responsive visual for the Red Bull Music Academy 3D soundclash between artists from Warp and Ninja Tune. Acts including Clark, Plaid, The Bug and DJ Food play 30-minute sets using 3D AudioScape, an immersive sound system created by veteran British pop musicians Martin Ware and Vince Clarke's Illustrious Company. The system consists of 16 speakers set up in a circle - eight on top and eight on the bottom - that can distort and move high and low frequencies around the space using a joystick.
The color and geometry of the graphics can be adjusted during the performance by MIDI sliders on a mixer. The Green dot films and nexus represented duo worked with designers Quayola and Thomas Taum to create abstract visuals that will be projected on a rounded screen that was rendered to look like windows.
Production: Nexus Productions
Designers: Quayola, Thomas Traum
Programmers: Minivegas, Field

‘A SPACE ODYSSEY’ is a yearly graduation exhibition organized by BA (Hons) Graphic Design and BA (Hons)Interior Architecture & Design students. ‘NO BRIEF: ReProcess’ is the theme of the show this year; it means their dedication to the whole design process, searching for the answers to their briefs. Contemplated to the design problems, explored the issues for creative ideas, they failed, and then reprocessed from the very beginning. They believe the new generation designers should not only do what they like, and jump to the conclusions. Creativity should be process with careful consideration and planning on all the details, by using posters, publications and packaging design etc… to present their concepts. This exhibition will showcase all design projects by graduates of these two programmes.

Wonderfully absurd reflections of the world define the work of Spanish artist Cristina Guitian. With a keen interest in the power of scale, she works at the extremes - from small drawings to massive mural-installations.Her work has been exhibited in London, Tokyo, New York, Amsterdam and Barcelona.
Portraits of My Life as a Bird explores the nature and aesthetics of the hybrid. Throughout history, mythical hybrids such as the chimera were used to describe fantastic yet vulnerable power. Courtesy of rapid advances in genetic manipulation, humanity is now on the verge of holding such power. Liberated from biology and ethical oversight, Portraits of My Life as a Bird is a playful imagining of this genetically mutated future.
Location: The Print House Gallery, London 2010
Date: Exhibition continues until 30th March, 2010
