Content is Queen

“Content is Queen” is a video art series of generative portraits that reflects on the foundations of democracy against the resilient nature of structures of power. At the same time, is a paradoxical dialogue and strange marriage between the banal and the utterly majestic: to create the series, the most popular (in a truly democratic sense) internet videos of a given moment are used as the input of a generative process that “paints” with action the portrait of the Queen.

On a technical level, this piece is a result of my research in breaking the limitations of the static image in a contemporary revision of the tradition of painting. The portraits are created using a generative technique that I have developed called “generative video painting”. It differs of previous attempts of video collage (like the techniques developed by David Hockney, mixing simultaneous points of view of an action) or video mosaic (where still images are represented by whole videos acting as pixels when properly reduced in size). My technique uses regions of video content to effectively represent or “paint” heterogeneous regions of the image. Both the partial content of the videos and the whole image are fully visible at the same time, widening the possibilities to deliver meaning in a contemporary aesthetic language.


oki-ni presents THE GAME

Bringing together the creative talents of director Antony Crook, Ridley Scott's RSA/Black Dog production company and the pioneering work of wireWAX, this moving editorial is fully shoppable - meaning that you can click on any outfit, while the video is playing, to shop the look.

The video is styled by Glenn Kitson, a regular oki-ni collaborator, and represents a big step forward in the functionality of online video.

Holographic Fashion Show

The question was how to communicate the philosophy behind the new collection of German "Haute Couture" fashion designer Stefan Eckert in a better way. The answer was the world's first complete 3D holographic fashion show. I teamed up with director Florian Sigl to create the visual concept for the show and how to express the collection within this special medium as best as possible. After shooting with a high speed camera I did all stages of post production, from 3D to motion graphics to compositing.
The result was one of the biggest holographic projections ever which creates a complete optical illusion and breaks the rules of time and space on stage.

L’Amour Fou

The public life of Yves Saint Laurent was an extravagant spectacle, as a design prodigy and then the grand coutourier of a fashion empire, he influenced fifty years of style and was an icon to millions -- but few are familiar with the private life of the legend. In Pierre Thoretton's L'AMOUR FOU, Pierre Berge, the man with which YSL shared four decades of his life, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Framed around the 2009 auction of the priceless, elaborate art collection amassed by Yves and Pierre personally over several decades, this extraordinary documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of a mythic personality, whose personal life matched his public for elegance, decadence and passion. Winner of the International Critics Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival and an official selection of the TriBeCa and San Francisco Film Festivals, L'AMOUR FOU is riveting film event perfect for fans of documentary and fashion die-hards alike.
