About the Show
This year, The Creative Independent is collaborating with National Sawdust to introduce the world to revolutionary creations from working artists. This edition of The Creative Independent and National Sawdust will feature an immersive pre-release preview of the Digital Museum of Digital Art (DiMoDA)’s third full VR-based exhibition, titled New Talismans + Mind/Body Dualism.
DiMoDA 3.0 will be released to the public later in May of 2018, and will explore themes such as witchcraft, magic, simultaneity, and the virtual body. At this event, artist and museum co-creator Alfredo Salazar-Caro will lead viewers on a projected, real-time tour of the virtual exhibition, and featured artists Rindon Johnson and Shane Mecklenburger —as well as sound artists Christine Papania and Benjamin Forest of ARIADNE—will take the stage to share how they developed their DiMoDA-commissioned works.
A pioneering virtual institution, DiMoDA is dedicated to commissioning, exhibiting, and preserving cutting-edge VR artworks. Founded in 2013 by Alfredo Salazar-Caro and William Robertson, it has now released three exhibitions, featuring 14 unique artist-designed VR experiences. Learn more at www.dimoda.art.
