Digital Aurora arises from the hearts and minds of young, ambitious artists, engineers, and designers working in the rapidly changing technology and innovation sectors and dreaming about the future.
It is a vehicle by which to explore the uncharted territories between technology, art, and culture. Digital Aurora is a composition of structural, graphical and digital artworks that aim to disconnect the viewer from reality, interpolate data, and invite an examination of human experience and perceived value refracted through a lens of critical enquiry.
“We hope that this exhibition will be able to display a different side of technology that is both beautiful and stimulating, to inspire and encourage the next generation of thinkers, innovators, and artists to take action.”
Meaning “all (or nothing) of anything”. Three works grappling with the immensity of the known, and its conversation with us as individuals.
The works display streams of information from the internet, each questioning a different aspect of our relationship with the accumulative mess of facts, names, places, dates, and ideas that exist. The first piece, “.*”, presents an ocean of disembodied data, deprived of context, which viewers are invited to digest in either a desperate search for interpretation, or as a meditative wash.
Whispers in the wind
By Krishna Duddumpudi
Whispers is a study into the perception of value and its ephemerality in the omnipresent age of social & mass media.
Much like traditional forms of Art, Cryptocurrency is a phenomenon where its value is determined by a collective of individuals. However, unique to cryptocurrencies are their correlation with mainstream media’s ecosystem and the un-curated, unbiased reflection of “perceived value”.
The result is a unique formless digital entity, shaped by whispers in the digital wind.
The installation is a crypto-seismograph, a bystander listening, tracking, translating and documenting this causality.
