As we live more fully online and in metaverses, the digital world is merging with our physical reality and giving rise to the development of digital identities.
Through a series of multisensory installations, Unidentified Fluid Other will examine the rise of digital identities, how we shape-shift between virtual and physical worlds, and what’s possible beyond the fixed boundaries of the physical world. Dutch and international participants include Jacolby Satterwhite, Oseanworld, multimedia artist Lu Yang, designer Audrey Large, Digital Fashion institute The Fabricant, fractal artist Julius Horsthuis, 3D artist Harriet Davey, graphic designer, animator & programmer Ksawery Kirklewski and sound artists Adiel, Ben Lukas Boysen and Imogen Davey. The exhibition is curated by Bogomir Doringer.
The ‘unidentified fluid others’ featured in the exhibition blaze a trail to virtual landscapes where they meet fellow digital creatures in virtual realities and in the multisensory museum experience. Here, visitors can try on digital fashion from a virtual fashion house releasing seasonal NFT drops; gather around physical sculptures born out of digital forms; and experience motion-captured vogue dancing demonstrating how digital masks can enable the ritual of human movement and community empowerment.
Exploring the boundaries of our identities through art and technology, ‘UFO – Unidentified Fluid Other’ assembles disparate communities and subcultures, united by digital expression, and transports us to hyperrealities of infinite possibility.
