Our featured artist this week is Paulius Sliaupa. Sliaupa is an experimental mixed media artist whose art explores the relationship of light and atmosphere to our daily lives through sensory works. Sliaupa records own sounds from everyday life and creates sensual narratives with a mixture of atmospheric soundscapes, painterly objects and videography in an installation of multiple artworks to themes of organic structures, rituals, light, and more.
Year of The Sun, 2020, digital video, 04:50’, 16:9 (Digital Collage above)
"Nature and technology intertwine in the Year of the sun. The digital world is virtual and nothing in it can be touched. Strangely, in order to interact with it, a gentle and precise human touch is necessary. Video displays growing from the soil become parts of this landscape as exhibits of interaction. As the distance between natural and the virtual world dissolves, an apparent symbiosis develops. Nature, interconnected with technology, begins to exchange substances and initiates cyclical transformations. Meanwhile, flies initiate an exploration of the complex mental processes between two individuals.
Project developed together with Elia Claessen. Music developed for the project by Suzan Peeters. https://youtu.be/hCcEhSgWMVw "
