Dear friends & colleague,

hope this finds you well.
I'm proud to share with you "And one day, boom: the pavilion of exploded
reality!" (http://and-one-day-boom-the-pavilion-of-exploded-reality.com/)
at The Wrong (http://thewrong.org/), New Digital Art Biennale São Paulo.
Venue November 1st 2013.

The theme of the Pavilion I’m curating for The Wrong Biennial (
http://thewrong.org/And-one-day-boom-the-pavilion-of-exploded-reality), is
inspired by the concept of impossible architecture: focusing upon the new
idea of digital art surrealism driven mainly by incoming energy from web
culture and the intellectual groups developing within that framework which
create amateur artworks using new technologies much like the way in which a
magician uses a magic wand.
The ten artworks exhibited on both the sides of the Pavilion - sculptures,
installations, images and videos - appear to the eyes of the audience
through Augmented Reality Technology. The artworks created by ten students
from Rome’s Academy of Fine Arts are based upon concepts such as: remix,
détournement, digital surrealism, glitch-art, appearance, dream,
sleep/awake, journey and unreality. The ten creations contextualized inside
the Pavilion feature unexpected shifts and shifts in meaning.
In fact, Augmented Reality Technology, by increasing reality itself,
creates new levels of unreality. It decontextualizes real space,
accentuating the paradox of how Augmented Reality actually decreases
reality by removing and modifying real levels to increase illusoriness in
our real atmosphere.

Very best, Chiara
