DIGITAL REVOLUTIONS
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.
