We already knew it, some italians are genius. Although it's not common to find really inspired projects over there, mainly because many talented people left the country due to restrictions and awful laws. Said that, when you find something like the Milan based bunch Recipient, it's worth a hundred of other average "seen before" things. Their aim is to experiment the interctions between new technologies and new forms of art, with an eye on what could emerge from the collision of these two worlds.
The results are crazy cobinations like historical architechture being melted toghether with futuristic motion graphics through an unusual projection mapping session, or the analog world going digital in a pythagorean device (aka Rube Goldberg machine).
Stay hungry, stay foolish someone said... well we're sure these guys will.

The Pistolshrimp's projection below is inspired by the tarot, a set of cards used for games and fortune-telling. Commissioned in the 15th century, the Visconti-Sforza tarot deck is the first one to include major arcana and one of the oldest known to exist.
