NEW NATURE at Artechouse

January 12, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until January 13, 2019


Step into a colorful digital menagerie of nature-inspired creatures and plant life that will react in real-time to your gestures and actions.

New Nature by Marpi, the latest interactive art exhibition at ARTECHOUSE, explores our organic world through an immersive audio-visual experience, incorporating computer learning (A.I.), responsive technology, and music. Driven by your sensory movements, the multi-user artworks create real-time generative patterns, forming a virtual terrarium of insects, plants, creatures, landscapes, planets, and more, all in different shapes and sizes. These ever-evolving worlds morph and melt over time, reacting to people throughout the space. Marpi’s work harnesses the power of cutting-edge digital tools to offer new ways of interpreting the ecosystems and organic processes all around us.

New Nature is  the first large-scale solo exhibition for renowned technologist and digital artist Mateusz “Marpi” Marcinowski. The artist bases his experience on early gaming platforms that delighted children with their joyfulness such as Tamagotchi and Super Mario Brothers. Taking the gaming’s MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game) platform and combining it with organically-inspired virtual worlds, he creates interactive installation art where anyone and everyone can participate.

NOTE – THERE ARE ALSO ADULT ONLY HOURS FROM 5:30-10PM. PATRONS MUST BE 21+. For more information, click here!
