Last few days left to explore Digital Earth – a new experimental virtual museum of contemporary art. The joint project of Winzavod and Re:store in Moscow will be available online until 10 January 2021.
Digital Earth («Цифровая Земля») is the concept introduced by Al Gore, former US vice president in the 90s. The future was then seen as a space with open access to scientific and art resources that would help people understand the processes on our planet and the impact of human actions on the environment. The Digital Earth concept is linked to geo-space revolution where universal semantic code allows scientists to predict not only new developments in science, but the future of humanity overall.
Antonio Geusa, expert on the Digital Earth project panel, noted, “The technology itself is not art. It’s just means for creating the art. However, digital paradigm is at the core of everyday life now. We all know that art is what helps us make sense of the world we live in. Artists who turn to digital technologies in their works are the most reliable interpreters of today. Digital Earth is, first of all, a challenge aimed to show why art is still the best way to make sense of our reality”.
Digital Earth platform is an absolutely new virtual format where a game base environment is created to allow the viewers develop their own unique pathways to explore digital art at the exhibition. The space of the museum is both futuristic and out-of-time sphere shaped building that allows to distribute energy evenly and creates harmony with nature and outer space.
The platform showcases 15 works by artists who won the visual digital art competition organised earlier by contemporary art center Winzavod and re:Store.
