This video focalises 100 years Zenit* front cover's designs, digitally processed through a fast animation sequence and kaleidoscopic display, drawing readers into a constructivist provocation inspired by the magazine’s avant-garde ethos. The accompanying music was randomly found via synchronisation of the artist's mind and the universe, while the spoken word fleshes out the meaning.

Ovaj video fokusira stogodisnji dizajn Zenit*-ovih naslovnih korica, digitalno obrađenih kroz brzu sekvencu animacije i kaleidoskopski prikaz, uvlačeći čitaoce u konstruktivističku provokaciju inspirisanu avangardnim etosom** časopisa. Prateća muzika nasumično je pronađena sinhronizacijom umetnikovog uma i univerzuma, dok izgovorena reč raščlanjuje značenje.

* Zenit: International Review of Arts and Culture was a Yugoslav avant-garde magazine published in 43 numbers in 34 volumes in Zagreb (Feb 1921-May 1923) and Belgrade (Jun 1923-Dec 1926).

**Zenitism (Serbo-Croatian: Zenitizam / Зенитизам) was an art movement in Yugoslavia from 1921 until 1926, first in Zagreb from 1921 to 1924 and from 1924 in Belgrade. It primarily involved visual artsgraphic designpoetryliteraturetheatrefilmarchitecture and music.[1] Like other avant-garde movements at the time, it held anti-war, anti-bourgeois and anti-nationalist views and rejected traditional culture and art. Micić defined it as "abstract metacosmic expressionism." From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
