Optics – Art film by Maxim Zhestkov

Optics 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.
