When Clay Meets Code: A Digital Frontier of Ceramic Art
Welcome to hunLAB's inaugural exhibition, CeramiXR. XR (Extended Reality) is an umbrella term that encompasses various technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR). CeramiXR invites the audience to an experimental space where emerging technologies are applied to traditional art forms. By merging ceramics with cutting-edge digital tools, this exhibition pushes boundaries and transforms how we perceive and interact with ceramic art.
At the heart of hunLAB's ethos lies innovation and collaboration. Innovation goes beyond embracing the latest technologies or trends; it is about daring to think differently, questioning established conventions, and venturing into uncharted territories. Through a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach, CeramiXR brings together artists and technologists from diverse disciplines and cultural backgrounds.
CeramiXR draws inspiration from the concept of 'Biophilia,' acknowledging our deep-rooted bond with nature. Over millennia, ceramics have fused the elements of 'earth,' 'water,' 'fire,' and 'wind' with the dexterity of human hands, embodying a tangible link to our past and present. As you navigate CeramiXR, you will encounter organic textures, captivating forms, vibrant colours, and natural soundscapes inspired by the natural world. These sensory experiences prompt us to contemplate how digital technology can be harnessed to deepen our appreciation for the beauty and fragility of nature, inspiring us to cultivate a more harmonious relationship with the world around us.
Join us on this transformative journey at CeramiXR, where innovation, collaboration, and the celebration of nature converge to redefine the boundaries of art and technology.
