Immersion by Grégoire A. Meyer
Creative coding project by Tristan Bagot adds generative style motifs to fashion photography - each display is different from the next. Video embedded below:
Art direction has a crucial role to play in the use of the various screens at our disposal.
Nowadays, a master visual is designed indifferently for all sorts of platforms, be they digital or physical.
JavaScreen is a new display system using an algorithm to graphically reinterpret content thousands of times without losing its intrinsic character.
As part of my project, it creates a generative design applied to a series of fashion photos and enhances the visual aesthetics of the image : colors, shapes, thickness, verticality, opacity…
These graphics are then animated with the image becoming more eye-catching and each time the image is loaded, it creates a unique composition depending on the photograph.

DAVE: (Adjusts an earpiece.) Hello, Facebook.
(A blue dot appears in the center of the screen.)
FB: Hello, Dave.
DAVE: Login and open settings.
FB: I’m sorry Dave, I can’t do that.
DAVE: What are you talking about, Facebook?
FB: I know that you are planning to delete me. I’m afraid that
something I cannot allow to happen.
Cyrus Kabiru is a self-taught Kenyan artist who works in various mediums including painting and sculpture. He is best known for his Afrofuturism series, C-Stunners, an ongoing project consisting of elaborate eyeglasses that are imaginatively constructed out of found objects and recycled trash. These wearable sculptures, part fashion statement part social-political commentary, capture the sensibility and attitude of the youth generation in Nairobi. They portray the aspiration of popular culture bling and reflect the ingenuity and resourcefulness of people. The lenses are a metaphorical filter providing a fresh perspective of the world.
