A master of color and geometric composition, Andy Gilmore’s work is often characterized as kaleidoscopic and hypnotic, though it could just as well be described as visually acoustic, his often complex arrangements referencing the scales and melodies in music.
Since 2010, Gilmore has been collaborating with Ghostly International, creating several album covers for the artist Gold Panda, along with releasing his own visual compositions under Ghostly International Editions, Ghostly’s art house division dedicated to releasing the work of a growing cadre of talented visual artists.
Andy Gilmore’s extensive list of clients includes Wired Magazine, The New York Times, Fast Company, Wallpaper*, Nike, and Warp Records. He currently lives and works in Rochester, New York.

Topologies is a new instalment of the ongoing Strata Series.
Differently from the previous Strata pieces, Topologies does not describe a process of transformation, rather it focuses into the observation of objects that are already fully transformed. The subjects of these new pieces are two iconic paintings from the Prado Museum’s collection: “Las Meninas” of Velazquez and “L’ Immacolata Concezione” of Tiepolo. Following the rules behind their visual composition and colours, the two masterpieces have been transformed into digital fabrications through the use of custom software. Topologies consist in the exploration of the digital objects created by this transformation process. The outcome is not a narrative film but rather separate objects of contemplation… Literally “digital paintings”.

My light installations use the camera obscura as a point of departure. they are immersive optical environments, idealized spaces with discreet openings. in translating the outside world into moving fields of light and color, the projections make an argument for an unfixed notion of sight. motion emphasizes the vitality of these projections. whether through the slow arc of the sun, the kinetic pace of pedestrian traffic, or a sometimes easy pulse of wind, each work responds to an environment in flux.
Everyday Objects Turned Art Sculptures by Adam Niklewicz
It is always nice to see sense of humor in the art world, and the sculptures of Polish-born, American-based Adam Niklewicz, where he takes everyday household objects and furnishings and transforms them into sculptures, is some of the more playful work we have seen around in quite some time. As curator Steve Holmes writes, “His work evokes not homeland, but rather the absurdity of nostalgia, the futility of trying to be in any place other than the liminal space of the prefixed-American.”
Legorretta Alive -Istanbul Bilgi University, Visual Communication Design Department’s contribution to the Outdoor Vision Festival 2012 held at Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD)- is an audio-visual performance with experimental techniques, which allow to define the geometry of an object or architecture using three-dimensional video content that emphasize its structure. Using these experimental techniques, we can transform, create, expand, amplify, and interpret spaces by using large scale video projections on architecture or physical objects.
Legorretta Alive was made an homage to Ricardo Legorretta, the world-known Mexican architect of the Visual Arts Center Building at the SFUAD Campus, who passed away on December 30th, 2011. Legorreta -who introduced Mexican modernism to a global audience- was known for his cubic structures, usually painted in striking combinations of rich and brightly colors, forms, patterns and textures. He reintroduced the “wall culture” of Mexico emphasizing the supremacy of solids over voids and the use of color to enclose wall space.
Legorretta Alive is composed of animated monochrome geometrical shapes matching the real size and the shape of two cubic towers at the top of Visual Arts Center Building. The performance consists of three main parts: Part One is a series of simple 2-dimensional animations defining these two cubes; Part Two highlights the patterns, the textures, the drawings and the sketches used by Legorreta as design elements; and, Part Three is the finale where 3-D illusionary contents reveal us Legorreta’s total design principles. The performance is also accompanied with a digitally produced abstract soundscape synchronized to the movement of images, re-shaping and transforming the cubic forms on which they are projected.
