Quayola and Memo Akten for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad

Nexus Interactive Arts has worked with Quayola and Memo Akten on Forms for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, which is part of the larger countdown to the Olympics. The piece uses archival footage of athletes from the National Media Museum as a seed for a series of abstract animations. An on-site installation also allows visitors to explore the individual layers that comprise each segment.

As a fun compare and contrast, here’s how Lobo approached a similar brief in a past project for Panasonic (thanks Higa):
