TRAPPIST-1

An ultra-cool red dwarf star in the constellation Aquarius, TRAPPIST-1 has a planetary system that is older than our solar system.

This is a sketch made through computer programming. It uses Processing language to replicate the first video capture of the star. After watching it, I was amazed by the mega pixel quality and the random flickering. After recreating it with code, I felt a much stronger connection with this old, far away entity.

DANIEL WILDBERGER is a multi-disciplinary designer and educator working at the intersections of dynamic media, interactive, motion, experience, and visual design. Originally from Brazil, he has a B.A. in Communication Design and Advertising from the Universidade Católica do Salvador, and an MA and MFA from the University of Iowa, United States.

Daniel’s work has been published and presented internationally, and some of his projects have been awarded prizes from AIGA, Creativity International, Communicators Awards, and Hermes International. He has run Wild Inc., his own studio, since 2009.

CELLULAR AUTOMATA

CELLULAR AUTOMATA is a model of computation studied in automata theory. Cellular automata are also called cellular spaces, tessellation automata, homogeneous structures, cellular structures, tessellation structures, and iterative arrays. Cellular automata have found application in various areas, including physics, theoretical biology and microstructure modeling.

The Rifat Chadirji Prize is the newest prize to be established as part of the Tamayouz Excellence Award program of championing and celebrating the best of Iraqi architecture.

The prize is named after Dr. Rifat Chadirji, the great Iraqi Architect whose influence and importance is far beyond built work. The award was be officially launched in January 2017, celebrating the 90th Birthday of the great architect. The Rifat Chadirji Prize is a thematic open international prize focuses on proposing designs responding to local challenges in Iraq. This prize aims to introduce Iraq and its challenges to the world and invite them to submit their ideas and to establish an uncompromising open source of ideas tackling social issues in Iraq through design.

AP&5E (Alex Pochat e os Cinco Elementos) were ready for a comeback. After the succesful independent realease of their first record, the band was back together for some time in the studio, crafting a second album that should capture the "new" songs that had been written over the many years ever since.

It is funny how time passes for independent artists working collectively. The creative output is what we agree to make: something that is, essentially, a testament of time. It survives as something that proves a possibility — that "art for art's sake" is a thing that can live in a metaphorical storage space, waiting for a time to be released. And whenever the time is here, it is like a work session and family reunion all wrapped up into one.

The design for the album cover tries to capture time as a dynamic, autonomous, graphical rendition of a clock through a coded program (it is also part of an ongoing fascination with time-keeping mechanisms).

SNAKE

SNAKE is a video game genre where the player maneuvers a line that grows bigger after eating something, typically apples, making the snake a primary obstacle to itself. The concept originated in the 1976 two-player arcade game Blockade from Gremlin Industries, and the ease of implementation has led to hundreds of versions (some of which have the word snake or worm in the title) for many platforms.
