It is not easy to organize a digital art exhibition due to the equipment requirements, the need to gain acceptance by the public, and the academic interpretation of the work itself.
But “Avatar: My Metaverse”, in progress at the Hanshan Art Museum in Suzhou until November 21, brings together 33 domestic and foreign artists to present the sensory world of encrypted digital art to the public.
The work is divided into four sections: the Community Metaverse, the Biosphere Metaverse, the Parallel Metaverse, and the Disintegrating Metaverse.
Obviously, Metaverse is the watchword of this exhibition.
âThe metaverse is the ultimate form of internet socialization,â said Lao Bu, director of the Hanshan Museum. âAnyone can have their own digital avatar or their own digital assets. They can socialize, create, trade or play games in this metaverse according to their individual desires, thus establishing clustered community interaction and community consensus in this virtual world. “
One of the highlights of this exhibition is the voxel interpretation “Along the river during the Qingming festival”. In 3D computer graphics, a voxel represents a value on a regular grid in 3D space.
It took a whole year for the Cthuwork team to voxelize the famous painting by Zhang Zeduan (1085-1145) of the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), which transformed the original 2D painting into a 3D world.
Thinking about the display mode, the team felt that they could never and should never cut their connection to the real world. She therefore resorted to the coexistence of virtual and real realities to create the voxelized world.
Dates: until November 21
Location: Hanshan Art Museum
