Synthetic Natures is a digital art exhibition presented in the Sedition VR Gallery. The gallery was developed by MetaObjects as a prototype for Sedition, the online platform for distributing digital limited editions by contemporary artists for display on screens. The Sedition VR Gallery provides an experience for viewing digital artworks within a virtual environment.
Synthetic Natures explores organic and natural forms within a digital space, including water, forests, organisms, and light. The audiovisual artworks are presented as an immersive VR experience where users can escape into a synthesised natural world. The exhibition has been specially curated for Sonar+D Hong Kong featuring works by artists including Mike Pelletier, Ryoichi Kurokawa, FIELD, Yoshi Sodeoka, NONOTAK, Eric Schockmel and Joëlle.
