Universal Everything || Sydney Opera House / Living Mural

A global animation project by Universal Everything, collaborating with over 20 different animation studios worldwide to create a living mural on one of the world’s most iconic buildings.

Embracing emerging technologies, Universal Everything’s process always starts from drawing. The hand drawn techniques seen in this film are akin to the early pioneers of animation Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney.

Using these timeless techniques mean this film could have been existed in 1920, albeit with a 21st century twist – bringing our influences of global pop culture, modernist graphics and physics simulations into a playful exploration of this iconic building.

Anti VJ || The Ark

Conception visuelle : Romain Tardy
Musique composée : Squeaky Lobster
Gestion & production de projet :  Nicolas Boritch

Une installation de Romain Tardy et Squeaky Lobster @ Proyecta Oaxaca , le jardin Ethnobotanique d’Oaxaca au Mexique.
Sur l’in vitation du Proyecta Oaxaca , plusieurs artistes du label visuel ANTIVJ ont conçu quatre œuvres visuelles et sonores pour être installés au cœur du jardin ethnobotanique d’Oaxaca . Conçue comme une traînée de lumière , ces œuvres in situ offrir la chance de (re)découvrir un lieu unique et magique d’une manière particulièrement unique – et en ouvrant le jardin pour le public la nuit.

Un sentier des sens , en plusieurs variantes , il présente également aux spectateurs la perspective de quatre artistes sur cet espace atypique , où la nature et la nouvelle technologie viennent se faire face, comme un écho lointain des techniques ancestrales.

L’adoption d’une approche poétique , The Ark donne la parole aux plantes du jardin et permettent de raconter leur histoire, révélant leur caractère fantasmé et fantastique. Une installation audiovisuelle en trois parties, qui se déploie comme un décor de cinéma dans l’espace dans lequel le spectateur ère et joue le rôle de la caméra .

On the invitation of Proyecta Oaxaca, several artists from the ANTIVJ visual label have devised four visual and sonic works to be installed at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden in Oaxaca. Conceived of as a trail of light, these in-situ works offered the chance to (re)discover a singular and magical location in a particularly unique way – by opening the garden to the public at night.

A trail of the senses, in several variations, it also presents spectators the perspective of four artists on this atypical space, in which ancient nature and new technology come face to face, like a distant echo of the ancestral techniques that have allowed for its conservation.

Adopting a poetic approach, The Ark gives voice to the garden’s plants, participants in the work, the beating heart of the space and an unpredictable choir.

Telling their story, revealing their fantasised and fantastical character, The Ark is the mise-en-abîme of the trail. A three part audio-visual installation, it unfolds like a movie set in space, in which the wandering spectator plays the role of the camera.

Hala Stulecia, Wroclaw, Polande.

Lorsqu’il avait ouvert, le Hala Stulecia était la plus grande structure en béton armé au monde avec un diamètre de 65m.

La pièce proposée pour le halle du Centenaire de Wroclaw est basé autour de la notion d’intemporalité dans l’architecture, et l’idée de comment traduire le future tout au long du 20e siècle.

Partant des années 10 comme point de départ, des références historiques et artistiques telles que Metropolis de Fritz Lang ou les projets utopiques d’Archigram ont été utilisées pour révéler l’architecture à travers l’espace.
Romain Tardy et Thomas Vaquié étaient intéressés à essayer de créer une vision de l’avenir sans référence de temps précis, un avenir intemporel.

When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier.

The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century.

Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space.
By using references such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or the utopian projects of Archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. A timeless future.
