Tech and art combine to create vivid displays at new exhibition
Art that wraps around you.
180 Studios is opening a new exhibition dedicated to immersive art.
Sixteen installations blur the lines between physical and virtual artworks, all at the crossroads of art and technology.
Located in a former underground car park, the exhibition is designed like a maze to get lost in, as you wander through the dark rooms.
An installation explores the different forms of columns with rotating mirrors.
In a pitch-black room, lasers scan the floor and walls.
The installation, by United Visual Artists (UVA), is made of four kinetic sculptures projecting single-colour planes of light.
Further down, another installation explores a world populated by digital humans in a desert-like environment.
After scanning a QR code on the wall, visitors are invited to show a webpage to a machine next to each screen to start new videos.
Other highlights include “Vigil,” an installation made up of an ice block with the imprint of a hand, hung in front of a round screen displaying videos of landscapes.
Most installations don’t necessarily have an artistic message, but rather experiment with technology.
One of the biggest installations is “Vortex,” created by Barcelona-based studio Hamill Industries.
It uses light projectors, a purpose-made soundtrack and smoke effects.
The end result is a travelling smoke ring synchronised to the music.
“Future Shock” at 180 Studios runs from 28 April to 28 August 2022.
