Thurs. March 31, 2022, 6pm to 8pm EST
Remarks: 6:30 pm EST
introduces the inaugural exhibition of Canadian artist Antoine Lortie
at Floating Point Gallery. The exhibition invites visitors to step inside two exhibitions: one in web3, in Cryptovoxel, and the second one in the virtual reality application Art Gate VR
. In these two virtual environments, Antoine Lortie presents experimental works across three series of NFTs and digital wearables called “FuturPunk”, “Administrator” and “Conspirator”. Duplicated reveals the unprecedent gaps that emerge in the digital systems that humans build, and in the environments that surround them.
Using Blender and MagicaVoxel, to create intriguing and critical objects, Antoine Lortie explores the tensions between digital technologies’ capacity to destroy and preserve the current state of the art world. Floating Point Gallery and Antoine Lortie rethink the ways in which we use digital art. Challenging our perceptions and inventing new possibilities. New stories are waiting to be told to redefine the concept of art. The NFTs and digital wearables will be available on OpenSea and Cryptovoxel marketplaces, from the 31st of March at 6:00 pm.
