“Transcend time through movement. Transcend space through holograms – the reality is a projection.”
Merging the worlds of Technology, Art and Dance, Celestial Ballerina (2016) redefines the classical ballet and moves the performance off the stage and into a new digital realm. A glimpse of the future art form of holograms and captivating a larger audience to engage with the power of the ballet performance.
Lana Briscella's approach to art and technology is making a tangible world from the digital. Using the technological element of the 3d scanning technology, she is recreating moments of time and motion. The perceived imperfection creates a glitch aesthetic and the digital interpretation of our world. Diana Vishneva is breaking the boundaries of traditional ballet and creating a new approach to the classical art form.
Capturing the dance movements created 3D sculptures – your body becomes the brush. The beauty of a human body becomes visible. The hologram can be seen as a stage – they tell a story of the movement and the visual impact of Diana's creations. It is a prototype of the future performances and art where reality merges with projections.

A series of notebooks and Coloring book by artist/designers AMINIMAL studio, NERVOUS SYSTEM and HYBYCOZO. Filled with intricate artwork
Breaking the Grid of Coloring books and Notebooks
Whether you are coloring, taking notes, planning, journaling or just drawing... a notebook is a major aspect of the day. This simple tool can format your creations, organize your thoughts, set your goals, relieve stress, etc... all while on-the-go to your next adventure.
The UnGRIDDED collection is a series of large coloring books and pocket-sized notebooks focusing on different topics from many diverse disciplines.
Each page is patterned with unique linework from artist/designers AMINIMAL Studio, Nervous system, and HYBYCOZO. And focuses on the topics of Travel, Urban Planning, Natural systems, Mathematics, Sacred Geometry, Music, Generative art and more...
Fill the pages with your own art.
A conceptual approach to robotic manufactured art. We were Inspired from philosophies in pop art.
By simplifying as many a complex setups as possible, the process informed our future work and philosophy of robotic manufactured art. We hypothesized the way the software would generate the organic forms into flowing 3D strokes with different degrees of complexity. Tested the integrity of the form for a rigorous 3D milling process.
Skyscape is inspired by natural landscapes of mountain formations and shows the capabilities of cutting edge technologies of 3d milling. We can create a complete digital aesthetic and bring a 3D sketch into a physical space 1:1.
Material: MDF, Chrome coating
Size: 60 cm x 25 cm x 18 cm (24" x 10" x 7")
We love to show part of our studio life and our new work. This is an inside perspective of the photo shoot for our new look book.
Our timeless and unique jewelry collections are for every age and every style. Get inspired by the looks!
We are also introducing a new product - you will see a little sneak peak in the video.

The Urban Gridded Notebook is back in our shop!
The Urban Gridded Notebook is a blank notebook /sketchbook / journal gridded with 125 cities from all around the world. Great for Urbanists, Architects, Designers, Artists and those who enjoy cities. Each city pattern is completely different than the next. Begin to realize the possibilities of cities while taking notes; Redraw parts of a city unconsciously; or map your travel in the location of your dreams.. The possibilities are open to create anything within the modern city grid.
Stock is limited.
We are back from 4 months in San Francisco and settled back into our New York studio with new collections of work. Take a look at our Autodesk Artist in Residence Final Presentation for a preview of the new body of works, soon to be posted on our site.
So happy to be part of the Artist in Residence Program at P9workshop at Autodesk.
John is in the intro creating one of our new sculptures on the DMS.
Pure glitch, no filter.
The Sun overloaded the sensor.
Lana overloaded my heart.

Robotics and digital manufacturing has always been a major focus of our studio. 3D milling, 3D printing, 3D scanning are tools we use as way to express our form finding and design process.
The latest machine we have been accessing and pushing the limits of its capabilities is a 5 axis DMS Router. We are working on a new collection of sculptures with the intention of creating complexity with full robotic production. Our first test is complete and we are now cutting new forms and materials.
We have relocated our New York office to San Francisco for the next 4 months creating a new collection of work.
We have teamed up with Autodesk at Pier 9 for an Artist-in-Residency which gains us access to an amazing set of CNC machines and 3D printers.
We are now settled and the studio is up and running. Creativity is at a peak and starting a design process. We are excited about our new ideas and projects. New designs will be released shortly.
In our design philosophy, we are interested in the intangible major forces that shape our world. We have used the technique of electromagnetic fields to create our Field Test Lamp and Jewelry collection and we are exploring more variations with this system.
A system that has inspired us lately has been Air and the deformation of materials created by air flow. Intangible forces are often underestimated. Clouds, Waterspouts, Canyons are examples of the shear force of Air. Understanding this force has enabled us to fly aircraft and harness its energy with Wind Turbines. With simulation software, scientist have just begun to visualize the complexity.
We are currently planning a field trip to Arizona to study the patterns of airflow that created many of the canyons there. We are planning on teaming up with an amazing landscape photographer who will show us some of the most rare and unique sites. Equipped with a 3D scanner, we hope to document the patterns by 3D printing sections and analyze its instances.
With 3D simulation software, we will reproduce our research with a computational computer model and then apply it to designed objects. These objects will be the host form for creating a new dimension of designing with nature.
We wanted to share our intention design intention and more on this subject will come soon.
We are honored to be a part of Autodesk's Artist in Residency at Pier 9 San Francisco starting February 2015
The residency is a great opportunity for us to focus on our research with generative systems and apply our experimental designs to large scale manufacturing.
With Autodesk, we will be able to access their advanced software. We are well versed in the design software and interested in pushing the limits of their simulation software.
Conceptually, we have already begun to find inspiration of what we would create from our current generative systems and technology, as well as, finding new patterns in natural phenomena and emerging technologies. We will document the process with weekly updates on our blog.
This video is an insight to the studio culture, technology, and community of amazing designers, makers, and professionals that we will be a part of during our stay.
Thanks Everyone! We have reached our first goal. We started the Urban Gridded Collection because we loved maps and traveling. It seems as if we are not the only ones.
Our initial goal was set to help us release our first set. Currently, 28/120 cities are released and we will be adding more as the campaign progresses.
Its nice to know that most of funding so far has come from friends and word of mouth. We can't begin to tell you who much we appreciate it! THANK YOU for your help.
John and Lana

Thank you everyone for backing the project so far. After just two days, we are already 70% there already to reaching our first level goal.
To let you know a little bit more about our production process, We have already begun to prepare the artwork for etching. The designs are silkscreened onto stainless steel sheets. The production artwork is shown below. Enjoy!
