The site contains a teaser for three full-size VR installations.
myth of fragility is a project reflecting on the fragility and antifragility of humanity.
Fragility is the property of a material to collapse without the formation of noticeable residual deformations.
The project consists of three full-size, endlessly looped VR installations and a presentation video on the screen for display on the gallery wall next to the VR helmet. At the moment, the project is being exhibited at The Third place gallery in St. Petersburg, for which the installations have been adapted in projection onto 3 seamless screens.
The project includes three VR installations developed under the grant program, specifically for the Port Volga Gallery, the exhibition WHAT IS THE POWER, Volgograd.
Together with NFT-artist Rostislav Uzunov.
VR technology allows you to create full-scale global installations, with full immersion of the viewer into the created world with the effect of presence, without occupying a huge area and using only the skills of working in three-dimensional packages. This effect allows you to create a voluminous experience of interacting with a new, seemingly familiar, but strange world, where symbols and signs are hidden in details and oddities, sometimes contradicting each other. Such an experience creates a precedent for detecting inconsistencies, gently knocks the viewer out of the routine of life. The worlds created in each installation do not answer specific questions, there is no moralizing or norm-setting in them. The main purpose of such an impact is the appearance of new assemblies in the viewer's consciousness, new questions that arise when observing in life, already in ordinary physical reality.
The VR format also allows you to immerse a person in space without leaving home, which is relevant in modern realities, the only limitation is the need for high-quality VR glasses.
Two elements are repeated from installation to installation – a newborn baby and water.
The artist uses the image of a newborn as a symbol of fragility and strength, and water as a symbol of life and uncertainty.
