We have put feelers out fetching information about audiovisual events happening in physical spaces, to understand how venues and organisers are coping with the social distancing guidelines.
A lot has been happening virtually since the Covid 19 outbreak but very few actual events have taken place with plenty of cancellations, endangering the already fragile audiovisual culture ecosystem.
Well, Miami Artech House is kicking off with a bang, showcasing the art exhibition of one of the most recognized audiovisual artists worldwide: Refik Anadol.
Refik Anadol immersive installations allow us to leap into an universe of data, featuring a matrix that swallows everything around until there is nothing left outside of it.
His overwhelming data sculptures foresee a post-digital architectural future in which there are no more non-digital realities. A world where man and machine are embedded within each other.
Infinite Space is the first major retrospective of the work of award-winning, Los-Angeles-based, Turkish-born artist Refik Anadol. The immersive data installation invites visitors to open their senses to the endless transformation and infinite possibilities at the intersection of man and machine.
One of the greatest eighteenth-century English artists William Blake famously said, “if the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is – infinite.” Infinite Space is a collection of works that revisits Blake’s statement and seeks to cleanse the doors of perception with the tools available to twenty-first-century artists.
The exhibition explores memories and dreams through the mind of a machine by using data sets ranging from human memories, photographs of Mars, cultural archives and sea surface activity as data sculptures and digital paintings.
