Big Apple Beats
Ruben and Retoka's artistic project offers a captivating visual experience that transcends reality and immerses viewers in a new realm of New York City. Using their photography and digital art skills, they have created a unique and mesmerizing representation of one of the world's most photographed locations. What sets their work apart is their steadfast commitment to craft their artistic vision without the use of AI or third-party effects. Instead, they have relied on their own creative intuition to express their unique perspective of the Big Apple, utilizing vivid colors, intricate shapes, and innovative forms to transport the viewer to another world.

RADIOGRAFIKA - DIGITAL MINDS
"Digital Minds" is the first collection of the RADIOGRAFIKA project and wants to invite reflection: The digitization of the human being is already inevitable, and at the same time we intend to humanize new technologies. With our art we want to make an X-ray of our increasingly digitized minds.
A collection of 45 frames, where each one is a revolution within a one-minute 45 rpm loop. This project represents the digital and technological revolution that we are constantly experiencing. It's like a wheel that doesn't stop spinning, and spins faster and faster. The shapes and 45 rpm speed are reminiscent of vinyl SPs, adding a nostalgic, retro-futuristic touch to the project. 45 items - 4000x4000px 1 Video loop - 1920x1080 - 30FPS 60sec By Toni López - Retoka.com

CLIENT ERROR 4xx v02
In 2015 we did this amazing project, "Client Error xx", about some Internet error codes, and we represented them with a feeling of humanization of the digital world. This project had a lot of impact and opened many doors for us, it was chosen to create the corporate image of the 2016 Adobe Summit that was celebrated in Las Vegas. 5 years later we have decided to recreate it, the same concept, the same photos, but with other techniques and thus be able to appreciate our own evolution. Hope you like it.
