1. We created a new and animated interpretation of 'The Garden Of Earthly Delights' by Hieronymus Bosch. We were chosen to go crazy on the middle panel. So we did... in 4K! It is also an infinite loop in 4K. 4K 4K 4K!!!

    See our press release below for a short explanation.

    Unfortunately the exhibition at MOTI Museum has ended. Hope you got to see it. It was HUGE and AWESOME! But don't worry, it will pop up again somewhere. Until then, enjoy the online version.

    Official Press Release:

    PARADISE, a contemporary interpretation of The Garden of Earthly Delights

    Studio Smack, best known for their music video Witch Doctor by De Staat, have released a new animation: a contemporary interpretation of one of the most famous paintings by the Early Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights.

    In their latest work, the group cleared the original landscape of the middle panel of Bosch’s painting and reconstructed it into a hallucinatory 4K animation. The creatures that populate this indoor playground embody the excesses and desires of 21st century Western civilization. Consumerism, selfishness, escapism, the lure of eroticism, vanity and decadence. All characters are metaphors for our society where loners swarm their digital dream world. They are symbolic reflections of egos and an imagination of people as they see themselves - unlike Bosch's version, where all individuals more or less look the same. From a horny Hello Kitty to a coke hunting penis snake. From an incarnate spybot to headless fried chickens.

    These characters, once precisely painted dream figures, are now digitally created 3D models. All of them have been given their own animation loop to wander through the landscape. By placing them altogether in this synthetic fresco, the picture is never the same. What the animation and Bosch’s triptych have in common is that you’ll hardly be able to take it all in, you can watch it for hours.

    ‘Paradise’ was commissioned by the MOTI Museum in The Netherlands for the exhibition New Delights, which is part of the Hieronymus Bosch 500-year anniversary. A gigantic video installation of this work was exhibited in the Museum until the 31st of December 2016.

  2. Les idées representées par des objets usuels, s'interpénètrent, se complètent, essaient d'autres formules, d'autres utilisations. Les 2 têtes essaient chacun le point de vue de l'autre, quitte à se déplacer dans la sphère de leur personnalité. L'échange d'objets, d'idées se fait selon toutes les possibilités, jusqu'à l'épuisement. Le vrai dialogue laisse desséché.

  4. A dialógusok és valódi cselekmény nélküli film máshol még soha nem látott perspektívából mutatja meg a természet csodáit, a felhőket, a viharokat, a naplementét és az éjszaka fényeit, hol lassítva, hol felgyorsítva az eseményeket, majd az ember alkotta létesítmények művészien fényképezett részleteiben gyönyörködhet a néző, a milliós nagyvárosok forgatagában, a szinte néptelen sivatagok látványában, a különböző népcsoportokhoz tartozó emberi arcokban, de láthatunk balettszerűen mozgó gyártósoron dolgozó robotokat, az ipar képeit, és láthatjuk az emberi pusztítás nyomait is.
    Koyaanisqatsi hopi nyelven annyit jelent: egyensúlyából kibillent világ - kizökkent világ.
    Reggio filmje hol megnyugtatja a nézőt, hol csodálkozásra készteti, de mindenképpen gondolkodásra serkent. Célja, hogy meglássuk a világ hétköznapi csodáit, és megértsük, hogy milyen veszélyek fenyegetik változó világunkat, ha az embernek köszönhetően kibillen a kényes egyensúly!
