I recently discovered Barth Hess, and his work got my attention because of my growing interest on this intersections between art and design. He is a young dutch artist that works essencially with human bodies and it’s possibilities of recreations using new and existing materials in a very innovative way. He explores several fields as photography, video and 3D experiences, for the development of these mutant creatures that seems to tap into new fantastic worlds. 

From recent experiences we can mention collaborations with prestigious names as Lady Gaga, Palais de Tokyo, Iris Van Herpen and Nick Knight

Besides, Bart Hess has been nominated for de Rotterdam Design Prise, we can vote for him here: http://barthess.nl/vote-for-bart-hess/

Content is Queen: a generative video painting by Sergio Albiac

This video art reflects on the foundations of democracy against the resilient nature of structures of power. There is double sense here since he talks about the Queen avoiding the conventional painting technique by using an innovative method.

In this project, he paints through fragments of videos at different sizes on a digital canvas.
