Presenting: Blind Gallery Vistas Edition
In collaboration with Feral File and curated by Casey Reas and Kaloh
Hello, art fans!
I’m thrilled to share all the details about the upcoming Blind Gallery show I’ve been working on for over six months. It is a collaboration with Feral File, where I had the chance to curate alongside Casey Reas.
If you aren’t familiar with the Blind Gallery Editions, it is a week-long digital event where the story, inspiration, techniques, and hints about the creators are released parallel to collecting. Collectors can immerse and discover new artists until their names are finally revealed at the end of the event.
Building upon previous Editions —1st, Bear Market, Seed— six mysterious generative artists present artworks inspired by the landscape theme. Collectors can choose their preferred artwork and get a unique piece from the selected collection.
Why Vistas Edition?
“As part of my creative coding teaching practice, I’ve noticed how many of my students develop a strong interest and curiosity for generative landscapes.
Across history, many artists have used scenary and real word views as their inpiration. Nevertheless, the tools and technologies keep evolving, opening the doors for new aesthethics, not possible before.
For that reason, I was keen to put on a show with some of the finest scenery creators of this space.”
Artists draw upon their backgrounds, skilfully mixing perspectives of natural elements– both figuratively and abstractly. Each stroke of generative algorithms breathes life into these mesmerizing vistas, creating a harmonious blend of technology and artistic expression.
This exhibition serves as a testament to how "computer" creations redefine the real world, adding depth and dimension to its beauty.
