CORPUS: a new format of IT school. It teaches programming, robotics, blockchain, computer technologies. These disciplines are based on cellular automata: mathematical models created in 1940s as a way of simulation and study of the environment.Cellular automaton consists of cells and is guided by a set of rules. Depending on neighbors, each cell changes its own condition: ON or OFF. The cells can die, revive, move, clone themselves and create stable figures.Cellular automata are known by every programmer. It’s not just a graphic trick, it’s a widely used model – the very soul of programming. And we didn’t just draw visual identity, but programmed it.
Independent TV-channel Dozhd (rus Rain) broadcasts unbiased news, demonstrating the real state of affairs in Russia and releases incriminating coverage about corruption. In 2014 the channel was taken off the air by satellite and cable providers because of its attempt to investigate a disputable history-related issue. Dozhd had to switch to the commercial platform. Now, the only financial resource is online subscriptions of those who want to know the truth.
In 2015 Vladimir Putin announced that he would try to calm down the pressure from the supervision authorities and make the channel free again.
Since then, the promise to improve the situation with the Rain Channel was given twice. However, the miracle did not happen.
Therefore, Dozhd decided to take the wheel and keep Putin’s promise; Channel's team launched the PR action called “Putin turns on the Rain”.
