Collaboration by Giacomo Bastianelli

In the far future, human beings will communicate in whole new ways, we will understand the world around us in a much more complex way. The two-dimensional way of reading will be slowly replaced by three-dimensional holograms, capable of giving us a faster prediction of what is written. Based on the Spatial reasoning IQ tests exercises, this new writing system helps the reader draw conclusions about shapes based on limited information. Each face of the regular polyhedron will have a unique symbol on it (letter) and the Platonic solid will represent the complexity of the entire word. Holograms are a perfect solution when we don’t want our communication to be framed on a surface, but with this system, we could still write on psychical objects by simply unfolding the polyhedron into a 2D Pattern.

Giacomo Bastianelli – Next Eleven Paper

Diploma project with Jonathan Hares, Guy Meldem

The next wave of renewal for music scenes comes from the developing world of the “Next Eleven” countries. Their over-driven economic metabolisms generate all manner of social tensions and cultural rifts, which generates some 21st Century musical form. That non-Western folk forms, colliding with digital technology, will spawn some avant-garde new sound. A form where sound is fully meshed with visual imagery. Next Eleven Paper redefines the way we promote music and fills the gap between physical object and digital media. The first number is set in Mexico City.
