BERG was commissioned by Dentsu London, the creative communications agency, to explore the theme of 'Making Future Magic'.
Here & There
Here & There is a project by BERG exploring speculative projections of dense cities. These maps of Manhattan look uptown from 3rd and 7th, and downtown from 3rd and 35th. They're intended to be seen at those same places, putting the viewer simultaneously above the city and in it where she stands, both looking down and looking forward. Prints from a limited run are available for purchase.
Media Surfaces: Incidental Media
Media Surfaces explores a universe next door in which media travels freely onto familiar surfaces in everyday life. This film is a collaboration with Dentsu London.
Dimensions: How Big Really
With the BBC, BERG created howbigreally.com, which takes historically or culturally important events (like the 2010 Pakistan floods), and makes them human-scale by putting them over a map of your neighbourhood.
