We worked with artist Gil Bruvel again to document his latest series of work, The Cubist Series: "In the beginning are parts, and the parts combine. And as they do, they interact and interrelate with each other and with the quality of light that falls across them in a particular way. And as the parts and the light interact, something unpredictable begins to emerge: seemingly random patterns whose genesis lies in synergy and synchronicity and an underlying organizing force. Like hurricanes or cities, like crystal formations or branches of trees, like the primal act of artistic creation itself—something takes shape."
Working with Bruvel is always collaborative process where creativity flows back and forth to create a beautiful and informative video that tells a real story.
For Gil Bruvel, the parts may be organic or geometric: simple planes and angles, fragments of architectural language, or forms that conjure the flow and effervescence of life. Out of randomness appears an unexpected cohesiveness and complexity that is more than the sum of its parts. On one level, the artist produces and places these simple bas-relief shapes, keenly aware of the limitless possibilities of pattern, like infinite combinations in a game of chess. On another level, they place themselves. As in a game, the artist observes and responds to each play.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
