Life is on a New High | Alicja Dobrucka

The project aims to address the issue of the changing landscape and unregulated construction in the financial capital of India, Mumbai. The city is undergoing a massive construction boom, with more than 15 supertalls, hundreds of skyscrapers and thousands of high-rise buildings under construction. Currently Mumbai is home to the largest number of supertalls and skyscrapers under construction in the world.

More than 2500 high-rise buildings are already constructed in addition to more than a thousand mid-rises existing already. Most of the skyscrapers are residential. Even the richest man in the city lives in a skyscraper. ‘Antilia’ is one of the taller towers in which 27 floors accommodate a family of four and 200 servants.

The population density is estimated to be about 20,482 persons per square kilometre. The living space is 4.5 square metre per person. The number of slum-dwellers is estimated to be 9 million - that is, 62% of all Mumbaikers live in desolate slums.

There is no centralized urban planning and the towers keep popping up in all areas of central Mumbai, in particular on the huge pieces of land that accommodated textile factories that are now closed, as well as in the suburbs. The building companies are supported by the government and are given tax exemption.

My name is Hugo Germain, I live in Bordeaux, France, and I’m currently studying maths and physics, in order to become an engineer.

I get most of my inspiration from everyday life. I usually come up with an idea or concept during the day, from which I make a quick doodle so that I won’t forget it. Then later I start working on it in After Effects or Cinema 4d, so that they can become more visual and realistic. It’s funny because the final results are usually much different from what I had in mind.

Each gif has its own story but mainly it’s a way for me to provide inspiration and make people question basic things we take for granted. I often wonder “What if this or that was different/existed ? What would that look like ?”. Being able to actually create an answer to that question is very exciting for me, and I guess that’s also what people like about it.

Unnatural Perspectives | Morimura Ray | Socks Studio

Born in Tokyo in 1948, painter Morimura Ray graduated from Tokyo Gakugei University and began his career as a painter using abstract, geometric forms, later turning to woodblock printmaking.

According to his profile description in Wikipedia France, his early career as a non-figurative artist has a deep influence on his successive work, since the forms of trees, agricultural fields, houses and other elements are still created through an optimal disposition of triangles, squares and other geometric elements.

His drawings are based on “unnatural”, “flat” perspectives: often depicted from an high vantage point, they never aim to distinguish the figure from the background. Realism is not an issue, textures and hues are given great importance, and every element appears to have the same weight in the composition.

‘Metaphysics’ and other Dystopian Illustrations | Erdem Ergaz | Socks Studio

Erdem Ergaz (1977) is a Turkish painter living and working as an artist and teacher in Istanbul.

His paintings focus on the collision/adaptation of the human being with  the technological era, seen from the angle of faith, supernatural events and conflicts.

The technological drive inherent in Ergaz’s metaphysical worlds is accentuated through drawings whose aesthetics reminds either that of early computer graphics vectorial imagery, and that of information graphics such as the flight safey instructions.

Exodus | Marcus Lyon

Exodus is an exploration of the most significant migrations of the early 21st Century. As the ability of humans, goods and services to circumnavigate the planet increases exponentially we are left disconnected from a simple view of our common identity. Indeed, as our economic and geo-political differences intensify, the unstoppable movement and expansion of actual and digital assets challenge the power of the individual in society, the state and corporations to control opinions, actions and environments. Exodus provokes questions concerning the biggest changes in contemporary society through large-scale representations of the key themes that influence globalization in the modern world.
