Best of #2017 : This September we announced the 6th winner of the #lumenprize and saw @fabio.giampietro pass on the Gold Award to @____thijs____ for #PlasticReflectic , an interactive installation that draws attention to ocean pollution.
Plastic Reflectic is on view at Beijing's #TodayArtMuseum until January 7.
The martial array of mounted smartphones at Today Art Museum's ".zip" exhibition felt like a direct callout of the connection between consumerism and mass surveillance. #radii#radiichina#todayartmuseum
#todayartmuseum#beijing .zip Unzip the future “.zip” represents the compression and decompression of digital files. A powerful metaphor, ".zip" not only represents the coexistence of different formats but also embodies a populist medium that allows for intimate exchanges between people in the modern age. In this unique era, the power of media is rapidly expanding due to the unceasing reproduction and evolution of different formats. The nine artists of ".zip" have used their imaginations to embody these endlessly multiplying formats by creating a dynamic environment that both captures and expands on the essence of the space. Cycling through nine immersive media spaces, the audience is invited to explore the interplay between inundation and introspection.
The Sandletter by Seeeklab is a intuitive installation that conveys long-distance emotions. Via an intelligent hardware device which is paired with an app, The Sand Letter transforms a user's keyboard input and writes it into a miniature plot of sand.
The work is exhibited at #TodayArtMuseum until January 7 as part of the show #LumenMatrix .

#SlideToExpose is a collaborative augmented reality project by @_nicoleruggiero, @bloatedandalone4evr1993 and @refraktapp. The project explores digital intimacy, privacy, the concepts of life and death and asks how our devices aid, form, and reshape our perceptions of these experiences. Presented the 2017 #FoundersAward by @carlajrapoport, the work is on display at #todayartmuseum until January 7 💪
