arebyte selects three artists from SPUR.WORLD to be presented together on AOS: Babe, lIl, and Ilcruthac have been selected for their connection to arebyte’s yearly theme of ‘realities’, as well as their respective connections to the natural, mysticism and magic within landscapes, and alternative rituals of performing consciousness, memory and otherness. The Ilcruthac, Babe, and lIl worlds will be featured in the programme in the coming weeks.
Across workshops, collaboration, and mentorship the fourteen SPUR residents explore the boundaries of their digital practice through a pseudo identity. In the culmination of this period of research and exchange, SPUR.WORLD employs the avatars’ speculative look in forming digital identity and environment.
Consisting of fourteen virtual worlds, the online exhibition represents the subconscious domain of the residents’ custom avatars. Working within themes and representations of mysticism, ritual, and the natural world, the collective utilises game engine technology to form complex yet cohesive narratives.
