In the beginning of 2023 we are opening and presenting to you our debut personal exhibition “NEUROFLUX”, which takes place in art gallery “HYPER”, Rīga, Tērbatas iela 57. “NEUROFLUX” exhibition consists of two graphic art collections – “Diverse Beings” and “Galactic Characters”, two video art collections “Diverse Beings NFT” and “VR Spaces 2018-2022”, and four virtual art exhibitions “Process”, “Imagination”, “Digital Trail”, “Diverse Beings”.
“Diverse Beings” is a one-of-a-kind analog graphic art series created from 2020 to 2022, that showcases symmetrical, vibrant designs. The fluorescent colors and lighting in these pieces give them a special, eye-catching appearance. This art collection is intended to bring attention to neurodiversity, which recognizes and values the differences of human brain functions and behaviors. Through this exhibition, the artists hope to educate and inspire others to embrace their neurodiversity. In addition this series will be displayed in both video art and virtual reality art experience, allowing viewers to fully immerse themselves in the artwork.
“Galactic Characters” is an acrylic graphic art collection that explores a variety of themes, including aliens, mushrooms, nature, and color. These illustrations are vibrant and full of energy. The artist has skillfully brought these characters and their emotions to life. This collection will captivate and inspire viewers of all ages.
A virtual art exhibition can provide a unique and interactive experience for art lovers, allowing them to explore different media in a digital setting. “Digital Trail” (2021) features 3D scans of natural environments, allowing visitors to virtually walk through and explore beautiful landscapes from around Latvia. “Imagination” (2022) immersive illustration experience makes the visitor feel as though they are part of the artwork itself, interacting with the elements and characters on the screen. “Process” (2022) combines 3D scans, photography, and animation to create a unique and dynamic spatial composition. “Diverse Beings” (2022) virtual art experience features the first hundred digital colorway non-fungible tokens, showcasing part of the analog graphic art collection in an immersive world.
Music, art and technology platform Tribe Immersive was founded in 2018, Liepaja, by new media art students Paula Dejus and Maris Dejus. Both authors are Liepaja University bachelor and masters program graduates. Paula combines illustrations in virtual reality, augmenting experience with immersive color and light effects. Maris creates audiovisual composition synthesizing electronic music and immersive video variations.
Debuted in 2018 with VR art spaces “In a Port Town” and “Solution”, exhibited in RIXC and Liepāja Museum, artist collective continued in 2019 with exploring innovative tech such as 3d photogrammetry scanning in VR space “Plastic Waste” and 360° video combined with 3D audio design in Creative Europe Liepaja Culture department project “Virtual Liepaja city tour for Liepaja Senior house”, awarded for innovation in 2019 Liepaja Culture Awards. In the year of 2020 the artist collective participated in Liepaja Culture department project funding with immersive 360° video experience, 10 virtual performance series from electronic music project “Demaui – Tribe”. In this 2020 both members of the collective began their post-graduate studies in audiovisual art and new media program of Liepaja University and Riseba. 2020 ended with a release of new album “Simulācija Gaisma”. On the very first night of new year celebration in 2021, a new graphic art series “Diverse Beings” was born. Meanwhile, creating graphic art collections, the collective continued with exploring new media such as 3d object scanning, 360° video filming and 3D audio design, combining different aesthetics in virtual reality art space experiences.
Mixed media creations and the idea of audiovisual movement platform in the year of 2022 evolved in virtual exhibition galleries.
