ETERNITY ESCAPE OBSESSION is an artwork prepared specifically for the ScreenSaverGallery by Czech artist Anita Somrová (in collaboration with Jiří Topinka).

Somrová’s works are usually very impressive. One of the reasons for this may be that she openly works in purely visual way with kitsch, pop-culture cliches and internet aesthetics. We can also notice some kind of very specific story within her artworks. In narratives built in the soap-opera-like manner, familiar characters are, mostly out of boredom, changing the nature of their relationships. But every change pushes the story in some respect forward.

In Eternity Escape Obsession, Anita Somrová creates in collaboration with Jiří Topinka a raw epic story that can be understood as the visual and sensational distillation of the pop-culture and internet commodity which are constantly influencing and changing our state of mind (that is supposed to be a product of internet and pop culture in the first place) but are themselves continuously evolving. This work by Anita Somrová and Jiří Topinka offers strong visual and sensual experience of what is nowadays changing in our emotional responds and what remains the same.

Anita graduated from Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology, where she studied in Martin Zet’s Studio of Video. She has worked with video performance, video, performance, installations and online-works.

CURRENT SCREENSAVER | Sara Ludy /Dream House/

Tue Feb 03, 2015 00:00 - Tue Mar 03, 2015

ScreenSaverGallery presents Dream House by American artist Sara Ludy.

“This secluded 100-acre island gem is found resting on the center coordinates from a 3 second transport time. Surrounded by void, this island is a timeless wonder; featuring Dream House, the primary memory palace experience.

The north side of the premise includes a 9-plug waking pad equipped with sustainable primitives and reliable access. Just west of the waking pad is a uniquely tiered water feature overlooking space in a remarkable scene. On the southeast coordinates, between the lush eastern hills and the arid south basin, resides the shapeshifting Dream House; a domestic labyrinth built with familiar geometries and sacred details.

Created during the 1st period, Dream House is known as “the palace of dreams”. This hybrid dream architecture includes 3 lucid dream spaces precisely constructed utilizing genuine memories, native textures and brilliant moonlight. The house is furnished with premier animistics; Transport Bed, Stack of Books, Vanity Mirror, Floating Mirror, Floor Curves, Disc, Entity Bust, Sun Disc and Fountain Pad. All animistics are full automated and activated by proximity.

Dream House comfortably accommodates multiple embeds, providing an ideal platform for remote experiences. Dream House is the traveler’s perfect destination for exploring authentic dreams embedded in time, space and structure.”
