Marina Fedorova will be presenting COSMODREAMS, an AR and VR-based exhibit, at the inaugural Art Dubai Digital, an event tied to the 15th edition of Art Dubai. The show by the multi-talented Russian artist, on display at Madinat Jumeirah from 11-13 March, is a way of revealing the different aspects of the universe to a broader audience.
The contemporary showcase aims to delve deep into the idea of outer space, giving patrons a chance to touch, feel and hear the creations. And digital art will be supporting other features like the combination of artworks, including paintings and sculptures, artificial intelligence, online tools and social media. A multi-medium, extensively scaled project, COSMODREAMS reveals the Leningrad-born artist's perception of the cosmos as well as the beauty and complexity of the universe. While one may never travel to outer space, the COSMODREAMS project would like to give the audience the opportunity of an experiential journey on what it could be like. The role of technological processes over time is observed throughout the undertaking and thus the impact they are having and will have on our planet.
"Having the opportunity to showcase my COSMODREAMS experience at the 15th edition of Art Dubai and during the inaugural Art Dubai Digital is something that I very much look forward to,” the proud Fedorova said. “The borderline between real life and augmented reality will virtually disappear, allowing everyone to jump into a captivating new world, and I can’t wait for everyone to be able to easily surf the vastness of space soon.”
Promising to bring everyone together under one sky, COSMODREAMS is designed to cater to all kinds of viewers, whether art enthusiasts or not, including millennials, baby boomers and generation Z. The expo is best experienced through all of the available viewing mediums, which includes film presented in 8K ultra high definition, virtual reality and large-scale oil on canvas paintings as well as human sized objects and sculptures. The exhibition by the artist who lives and works between St. Petersburg and Munich will also boast a touchscreen which will allow the spectators to interact with the visuals on the screen and watch the stories unfold. Additionally, augmented reality will bridge the border between real life and the virtual space, which will take spectators on a journey through the extraordinary world conceived by Fedorova.
