PIONEERING "VIRTUAL" STREAMING FRIDAY 2 OCTOBER 2020
Inspired by the work of digital artists such as Keijiro Takahashi - Rice has gathered an international team of visual and technical artists to create an original way to perform live in a virtual world built in gaming technology Unity 3D.
The SPHERES world is a floating black and white globe, in which planets and shooting stars orbit a platform on which Rice can be seen performing as in real time.
Designed by Freny Antony AKA @ProceduralDisarray the cover art for SPHERES is influenced by Freny's practice as a multi-disciplinary designer and artist focused on visual research through creative coding.
Having studied at National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad and HTW Berlin, his work stands at the intersection of traditional design and technology.
He explores new aesthetics through randomness using open-source creative applications and technologies.
