  2. This documentary tells the story of a talented architect with a passion for art, one who developed and nurtured relationships with some of the most important artists of his time including: Miró, Picasso, Nivola, Giacometti, Le Corbusier and Gropius. Our project will present not only a portrait of his career and professional achievements, but also seek to correct the injustices that came with his exile. Sert was a pioneer in Europe and a lost soul in the United States, a man who was able to rebuild his own career in a different country by paying the price of oblivion in its own land. Our project follows a chronological structure beginning in 1926 when he received his degree in Architecture at the Universidad de Barcelona until his death in 1983 exploring the dramatic life of a complex man who had an indelible impact on American architecture in spite of the burdens of life as a political exile far from his beloved country.

    "I have my life divided in chapters that carry the names of cities: Barcelona, Paris, New York, Boston ―a nomadic life with too many changes― but no dull moments."

    Directed and written by Pablo Bujosa Rodríguez

  5. Patterned by Nature was commissioned by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (naturalsciences.org) for the newly built Nature Research Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. The exhibit celebrates our abstraction of nature’s infinite complexity into patterns through the scientific process, and through our perceptions. It brings to light the similarity of patterns in our universe, across all scales of space and time.

    10 feet wide and 90 feet in length, this sculptural ribbon winds through the five story atrium of the museum and is made of 3600 tiles of LCD glass. It runs on roughly 75 watts, less power than a laptop computer. Animations are created by independently varying the transparency of each piece of glass.

    The content cycles through twenty programs, ranging from clouds to rain drops to colonies of bacteria to flocking birds to geese to cuttlefish skin to pulsating black holes. The animations were created through a combination of algorithmic software modeling of natural phenomena and compositing of actual footage.

    An eight channel soundtrack accompanies the animations on the ribbon, giving visitors clues to the identity of the pixelated movements. In addition, two screens show high resolution imagery and text revealing the content on the ribbon at any moment.
