Roman De Giuli

Roman De Giuli is a German photographer and filmmaker. He is specialized in organic visual arts, that is creating practical effects with everyday ingredients without the use of computer generated imagery. His compositions mainly consist of fluids, powders and colors which are applied on glass planes and petri dishes, arranged in stacks to create vivid, three dimensional scenes. High resolution stills and videos are captured with macro lenses to cover tiny areas in enormous reproduction scales.

Roman does extensive studies of organic patterns, their behavior and movement. With the help of music and sound design, he transforms the abstract narrative potential of organic visuals in video to experimental montages with a cinematic character. His most popular works are macro cinematographic short films like STREAM, SINGULARITY and RADIOLARIANS which got international publicity, not least because of his visual compositions which are completely new to the human eye.
