An immersive Digital Arts Exhibition

June 3, 2017

Mirus Gallery is proud to present it's first digital art exhibition featuring a collection of projection mapped environments, VR wolds, 3D printed pieces, and a series of curated still artwork brought to you by a world class trio:  Can Buyukberber, Ecco Screen and Marpi. 

For this first digital showing at Mirus Gallery, you will truly see what the future of art holds.  From the moment you step off the elevator, your eyes will be tracking pixels from (13) 4K projectors across the room as they attempt to distinguish the connections between the real world you left at the door and the one created for you by world class artists. 

Move: Interact with installments via motion enabled Kinetic sensors by Microsoft.

Dream: Strap on a VR headset by Oculus or HTC Live

Feel: Take control with a set of position aware controllers

Your Artistic Guides for the night: 

Can Buyukberber

A visual artist working on immersive audiovisual experiences that embodied both in physical and digital spaces.  His practice consists of experiments with different mediums and display technologies, such as projection mapping, virtual reality, geodesic domes and digital fabrication methods.  Driven by an interdisciplinary thinking which extends to art, design and science, Buyukberber's work often focuses on human perception, exploring new ways of non-linear narratives, geometrical order, synergetics and emergent forms.  He has exhibited in international media arts festivals, conferences, and galleries in Europe, Canada and United States, including collaborations with Grammy-Award winning rock band Tool and Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.  He is currently studying at San Francisco Art Institute's Art and Technology MFA program as a Fulbright Grantee and is a resident artist at Autodesk's Pier 9 AiR Program

Marpi
