An audiovisual film developed for the digital artist Quayola.
The work was an investigation into the icons of Rome’s renaissance architecture. Through a combination of photographs and computer-generated graphics we created a series of images where the subject is de-contextualized from its historical and cultural implications.
Quayola had recently been awarded a commission by onedotzero for the MTV Bloom competition and was looking for an animation partner to help deliver the project. He approached Labmeta to help build a creative process for deconstructing photographs of architectural spaces ready for animation.
A process of metamorphosis transforms the architectural matter. Its solid three-dimensional spatiality mutates into an ephemeral two dimensional skin made of geometrical shapes and colors, obtaining a new incompact reality.
