Chagall reloaded - A glitch promenade, by Alberto Gulminetti at the Widget Art Gallery.


Dates:
Sat Dec 21, 2013 10:40 - Mon Jan 20, 2014

Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to present "Chagall reloaded - A glitch promenade" by Alberto Gulminetti at the Widget Art Gallery on IPhone, IPad and OSX-Dashboard. December 21st - January 21st, 2014. http://www.chiarapassa.it/upcoming.html

About the exhibition: "Chagall reloaded - A glitch promenade".

The WAG space becomes the extended space of the famous Marc Chagall's painting "The Promenade". The painting is reloaded in a digital key - in an expanded, surreal and glitch atmosphere. The artwork shows the deconstruction and the reconstruction of the painting giving it a movement of autonomy, a new existence, a new poetry, a sort of a "promenade" through the digital.

Dates:
Fri Nov 22, 2013 16:30 - Mon Dec 23, 2013

Dear friends & colleagues,

About the exhibition "Strange Attractors".

Clint Sprott (b. 1942) is a professor of physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In the 1990s, he used his own software to generate several hundred “strange attractor” images. For this exhibition, Daniel Rehn and Sarah Caluag have isolated ~150 of these forms (originally created 1996-99) and placed them inside the Widget Art Gallery.

OUT now: "And one day, boom: the pavilion of exploded reality!"


Dates:
Fri Nov 01, 2013 12:15 - Wed Jan 01, 2014

Dear friends & colleague,

hope this finds you well.
I'm proud to share with you "And one day, boom: the pavilion of exploded reality!" (http://and-one-day-boom-the-pavilion-of-exploded-reality.com/) at The Wrong (http://thewrong.org/), New Digital Art Biennale São Paulo. Venue November 1st 2013.

The theme of the Pavilion I’m curating for The Wrong Biennial (http://thewrong.org/And-one-day-boom-the-pavilion-of-exploded-reality), is inspired by the concept of impossible architecture: focusing upon the new idea of digital art surrealism driven mainly by incoming energy from web culture and the intellectual groups developing within that framework which create amateur artworks using new technologies much like the way in which a magician uses a magic wand.
The ten artworks exhibited on both the sides of the Pavilion - sculptures, installations, images and videos - appear to the eyes of the audience through Augmented Reality Technology. The artworks created by ten students from Rome’s Academy of Fine Arts are based upon concepts such as: remix, détournement, digital surrealism, glitch-art, appearance, dream, sleep/awake, journey and unreality. The ten creations contextualized inside the Pavilion feature unexpected shifts and shifts in meaning.
In fact, Augmented Reality Technology, by increasing reality itself, creates new levels of unreality. It decontextualizes real space, accentuating the paradox of how Augmented Reality actually decreases reality by removing and modifying real levels to increase illusoriness in our real atmosphere.

Very best, Chiara
