Revolutions in the Arts: Change-making with mixed reality, holographic computing, 3D printing & A.I..
IMC Lab + Gallery 340 East 64th street, New York, NY 10065
October 25 – December 3, 2019 Opening Reception Friday, October 25, 6-8pm
IMC Lab is pleased to present, “Reality Remix”, an interactive multimedia exhibit of artifacts from the near future, including radical new art & technologies highlighting the latest revolutions in painting, sculpting, holographic computing, neuroscience, VR, AR, mixed reality arts & A.I..
Enter a new era in which passive viewers become active participants, empowered to remix reality & shift perception itself. Through new art & technologies akin to super powers, the gallery, the city & the world itself becomes your collective canvas. The entire gallery will be filled with new work & maker tools which participants can touch, move & interact with, including never seen before VR/AR apps, multisensory installations & immersive art that stretch the imagination & transport you to fantastic holographic experiences where collective creativity thrives.
This show highlights artists, engineers & inventors from all over the globe who blend traditional mediums with powerful mixed reality (XR) maker tools, brain interfaces, 3D printing & AI art that vastly augment collaborative creativity via interdisciplinary mixed media & multicultural visions of future civil society. Their work highlights innovations in collaborative creativity, revealing tidal shifts in social & cultural consciousness in which our identities & modes of making, our public spaces & discourse are greatly expanded: growing far more open, inclusive & remixable.
Future Modes of Expression
In stark contrast with traditional artistic practices & maker tools including PCs & mobile apps that severely restrict us physically & socially, the immersive spaces & collaboration tools of the future will encourage richer modes of expression. Our most ancient mediums, painting & sculpture, are transforming & being transformed by innovations in XR & A.I.. As we break free of isolating screens & antisocial apps, our culture shifting to invite greater public participation & increasingly blurring virtual & real, future generations will be liberated by spatial computing, wearables, multisensory immersion & interactive cities filled with the public’s art & ideas.
