The Invisible Realm is a place devoid of both time & space, a place where our outward perspective disappears from view and the interplay of all that is unseen comes to life.
The works explore hidden dimensions, infinite realms, spaces in-between, dark matter, the subconscious, energy fields, consciousness, thought and the concept of creation to transcend.
The artists all share a common thread, to delve beyond this plane to interpret what lies beneath.
A special closing event on the evening of July 13th will feature talks and performances illustrating how artists are working with new technologies to challenge our sensory experience, highlighting the cognitive and restorative value of immersive art.
Tony Langford, co-founder and director of Kinetica, will present his research on new immersive media that broadens attention and awareness, from the Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA) conference, and will talk in conversation with Tamara Russell, a neuroscientist, author and director of the Mindfulness Centre of Excellence.
Kinetica Artist Member Mathew Emmett presents Double Skin, a performance interrogating how architecture changes our behaviour resulting in alterations in perception, mood and consciousness. Emmett defines architecture in terms of emergent forces, that of perception and territorial affect. This is the architecture of expanded media, super spatial senses, scission experiences and otherworldly chimera.
Ben Hardy & Zahara Muñoz Vicens from Strange Pill explore an approach to music that has textures beyond the realm of sound and blurs boundaries between artist and audience. They will talk about their work of music construction & deconstruction, realism & surrealism, psychedelia & audio-visual collage, and conclude the evening with an acoustic performance by their band The Nyco Project.
And Lauren Baker invites you to experience a live metaphysical art experience of aura photography. Through a process that visually captures the electromagnetic energy given off by a person or an object, the viewer can see its own human atmosphere.
