A kaleidoscopic experimental CG short by motion designer Dirk Koy – photorealistic layering that’s a little bit Inception, a touch Cyriak and a tad Dr Strange .

Full screen for optimal effect.


A blistering, hypnotic montage of aerial imagery from around the globe, from which a multiplicity of pattern and commonality emerges.

If the approach of Sligo based director and animator Kevin McGloughlin seems familiar, you may have seen the work of his twin brother and collaborator, Páraic.

Bizarre geometric weathering patterns resembling crop circles on the chain link fence of bemused Twitter user @Ben_On_The_Moon, who has been photographing the phenomenon for years, as yet unable to discover the cause.

Sisyphus – a record breaking Kickstarter funded kinetic table consisting of a lit bed of sand upon which a magnetised steel marble traces programmable mandalas, random geometries or custom messages.

The tables are available to pre-order in a variety of finishes in metal (starting from around €1,100) and wood (from €6,200).

Animated reaction/diffusion patterns by French visual effects artist Maxime Causeret, set to a track from the album Emergence by Max Cooper. To wit:

…simple chemical feedback mechanisms can yield complex flowing bands of colour — these forms of system were originally thought up by Alan Turing, and were part of the early seeds of the field of systems biology, which seeks to simulate life with computers, in order to better understand the systems producing the complexity we see in the living world.

Headphones, full screen and whatever you’re having yourself recommended for full immersion.
