Thicket is like holding an evolving work of art in your hands. Lines of light dance across the screen as sounds echo and reverberate in reaction to your fingers.
Lichtfront creates stunning visual translations of music and sound. Their latest work is a collaboration with Grosse8, another design agency based in Cologne.
