Following the presentation of FRAMED* as part of the Subterranean exhibition during FIBER Festival 2015, we are delighted to extend our partnership with the international digital art platform. FIBER presents a new series of artworks from emerging talents from different backgrounds to the international digital art scene. We’re honoured to reveal the first two artists and artworks: ‘Scalar V.002’ from the Ukrainian artist Evgeniy Vaschenko and ‘ECO – Neutralism‘ from US-based artist Raven Kwok. Both works can now be purchased from the FRAMED* gallery and are released in a limited edition.
FRAMED* is an Internet connected display that allows you to showcase artwork in a way that has never been done before. It brings digital art to life. The evolution of technology and accessibility of the internet has brought out an expansive range and depth in digital art, and now, FRAMED* can bring digital art into your everyday.
Scalar V.002 (2016)
by Evgeniy Vashchenko (UR)
Introducing our very first FRAMED release: ‘Scalar V.002’ – an interactive sound environment that reacts to your movement using FRAMED*’s webcam by Ukrainian artist Evgeniy Vashchenko. Slow and fast movements trigger different interactions with a surrounding sound and 3D sculpture, through which you slowly float. Evgeniy is working in the fields of live electronics, sound art and video art. His work is realised by manipulating self programmed algorithms in real-time and he performs and develops algorithmic tools, installations, sounds, visuals and graphics worldwide under the alias V4W.ENKO. In 2012 he participated and performed at the FIBER Festival and in 2014 he created the first version of Scalar for Coded Matter(s).
ECO – Neutralism (2016)
by Raven Kwok (US)
Neutralism is the first stage of ECO, a series of real-time animations demonstrating multiple bio-inspired interactions between Algorithmic Creatures. These creatures' geometric body structures are created based on various customized ways of finite subdivision, programmed using Processing. The community includes two species, EDF0 and CB91, which share the same environment but do not affect each other significantly through their behaviors, as a simulation of Neutralism in biology. Raven Kwok (aka Guo, Ruiwen) is a visual artist and creative programmer, whose artistic and research interest mainly focus on exploring generative visual aesthetic brought by computer algorithms and software processes.
