Lunar economic zone by Zhan Wang

See more architecture and design movies at dezeen.com/movies

Architectural Association graduate Zhan Wang has produced an animation depicting a fictional technotopian future scenario in which China has built a giant port to distribute minerals mined from the moon.

Zhan Wang’s Lunar Economic Zone project imagines a celebration taking place in Shenzhen in the year 2028 to mark the arrival of the first shipment of lunar minerals.

The animation portrays the architecture and infrastructure required by such a system and the way the parade might be propagandised to present China’s technological and economic prowess through the lens of the global media.

Teacher of Algorithms

Speculative Vision commissioned by http://j.mp/1K9rSa9

We think about smart/learning objects as yet not finished entities that can evolve their behaviors by observing, reading and interpreting our habits. They train their algorhitms based on deep learning or similar ways to constantly adapt and refine their decisions.
But What if things are not that good at learning after all without some help?
What if in a near future, i could just get a person to train my products better as i do with pets?
Why having to deal with the initial problems and risk that it might even learn wrongly?
So, What if there would be an algorithm trainer?

Thanks to:
Azyre Yang as The Teacher

FITC Tokyo 2015 Titles

Now in its sixth year, FITC Tokyo 2015 consists of presentations from some of the most interesting and engaging digital creators from all around the world. To commemorate FITC Tokyo’s inaugural title sequence we sought to encapsulate the city itself—distilled to graphic form. Aiming to contrast the harmonies of traditional Japanese culture against the backdrop and sensory overload of present-day Tokyo, we meticulously crafted elegant typographic forms to collide with abrasive, overstimulating glitch—giving way to a progressive journey where moments of extreme chaos fold into temporary tranquility.

Space Suite_Concept

created the video above as a visual proof-of-concept for a project which relies heavily on space visuals. I wanted to demonstrate that compelling footage could be created quickly and easily by mining the impressive public access image libraries of NASA (and others) for stunning photography, and then bringing them to life with simple 3d ‘tricks’.

I’ve posted a short breakdown of the project on my blog:

Wanderers – a short film by Erik Wernquist

For more information and stills gallery, please turn to: http://j.mp/1y9Y35F
(Just in case my website runs slow, here is a link to an imgur album version of the gallery: http://j.mp/1y5alIX)

Wanderers is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.
Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds – and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.
