Official Opening With Artist Talks @ RIAus from 6pm on October 1st.
Transreal Topologies will be held in conjunction with The International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality. The exhibition explores the field of mixed and augmented reality art (MARart), presenting a range of transdisciplinary artworks that are contributing to the development of a unique language for MARart, as both a medium and an area of inquiry. The exhibition focuses on modes of representation that deal with the augmentation of data, beyond traditional surfaces, in order to merge notions virtual and real in regards to objects, data and identity.
"A valid work of art should deal with the world the way it actually is. Transrealism tries to treat not only immediate reality, but also the higher reality in which life is embedded." -Rudy Rucker, A Transrealist Manifesto (1983).
The study of surfaces is a branch of mathematics concerned with spatial properties preserved under bicontinuous deformation (stretching without tearing or gluing); these properties are the topological invariants.
These works have been endorsed by an international selection panel, under the curation of Julian Stadon. This is the inaugural exhibition organised by the Mixed and Augmented Reality Art Research Organisation (MARart.org)
Artists: Tracey Benson, Mez Breeze/Andy Campbell, Andrew Burrell, Mar Canet/Varvara Guljajeva, Joshua Hagler, Damian Hills, Troy Innocent, Pierre Proske, Jorge Ramirez, Paul Thomas/Kevin Raxworthy. Curated/Organised by Julian Stadon.
