VESSEL, A DIVE INTO DEPTH
A new way of looking at the city. This was one of the strong motivators of the project subscribed by Heatherwick Studio for the Hudson Yards enterprise in Manhattan, New York. In a city filled with skyscrapers which captivate the eye, Thomas Heatherwick, founder and head of Heatherwick Studio, wanted to develop a project which people could use, touch and thus could relate to. Vessel´s inspiration, made up by 80 platforms, 154 stairways and almost 2,500 stairs, came from the enigmatic Indian constructions with thousands of geometrical stairways, which submerge from the ground. The work is predicted too be concluded in 2018.
THE ART OF MOVEMENT
Perfection has a place and time marked in The Art of Movement. The energy and graciousness of the gestures of over 700 elite dancers were eternalized by the lens of the well-known photographers Ken Browar and Deborah Ory; the authors of the book which is the result of the inspiring NYC Dance Project. The Art of Movement is a collection of images that petrify glorious poses and immortalizes the testimony of genial dancers, choreographers and artistic directors.
EMPORIO ARMANI + CAMILLE WALALA
The new-pop of Emporio Armani comes together with the new-pop of the artist Camille Walala in a series six images and a video which, like a kaleidoscope, multiplies and refracts the pop style of the Autumn/Winter 2016 Accessory Collection of the Italian brand. Camille Walala´s creations amplify different objects and add to them an inebriating sense of movement. The work of the artist reinforces the authenticity of a truly contemporary message: instantaneous and unforgettable.
