"Optics": An experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov

September 13, 2018

We have been covering the works of Maxim Zhestkov on our IG over the past year, and love that he creates these completely surreal but unique digital shorts. His newest short, "Optics," was recently names a Staff Pick on Vimeo!

is an experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov exploring the behaviour of artificial light and colour in digital environments. Blending architectural gallery space with computer-generated digital glass sculptures, we encounter animated refractions, chromatic aberrations, colourful reflection and other conditions which are impossible in reality. A series of tests and explorations guides us through different optical conditions of the bright and colourful digital universe."
