Architecture and landscapes through the prism of virtual realities, augmented realities, artificial intelligences, video games, the metaverse, NFT cultures.
Earth is warming. Windows are opening. It is often in times of crisis that art opens new windows, as so many points of view on the world, feeding little or great stories. Today, our windows are so-called ‘virtual’. Are the architecture and landscapes they reveal more surreal? Are they only in the field of fiction, of dreams, like a projection of our fantasies, our ravings, or our intimate or social fears? Or are they a testimony of our way of being in the world? Or, more precisely, how do we give it shape through our machines recording reality?
Virtual realities, augmented realities, artificial intelligences, video games, the metaverse, NFT cultures…inhabit the exhibition Fenêtre(s) sur cours [Windows with a view]. Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s film Rear Window, the exhibition brings together a group of artists, designers, and art and design students striving to observe the elements, geographical limits and sensitive materials of these parallel universes, through the window of art and design.
