What is Cyberart?

A question that inspires an entire immersive project at LEA12. Asmita Duranjaya and Sable Snakeappletree explore the term “Cyberart” through thoughtful debate and complex layers of text, images, sounds, and space. Their “Paradise of CyberPolis” not only contains examples of multiple artists work, but are at the same time contained by artwork as the sim itself is a creative installation, and immersive narrative game in itself. Together these elements provoke a curiosity towards how cyberart is understood and experienced.

I think of “Cyberart” as a creative process, or event, that happens when man meets machine, that creative dance that emerges as the two collide, online, intertwining in an intermedial space that is experienced uniquely for each of us. Cyberart is open to our feedback and reflection, and to our collective collaboration, manifesting into the most subtle discrepancies or into a significantly alternative experience.

Cyberart, as a term and a creative practice, is perceived and expressed differently through the imagination of these artists, who are currently exhibiting their answers to Asmita Duranjaya’s question at LEA12:

Mindscape - Animation Film Intertwined

▶ Mindscape (Animation Film)

Another favourite, timeless animation film from the National Film Board of Canada. Mindscape is a work of art that takes you on a journey, a drawing within a drawing, guiding you into its mesmerizing labyrinth.

by Jacques Drouin — 1976

A particularly creative example of the pinscreen animation technique, this film is about an artist who steps inside his painting and wanders about in a landscape peopled with symbols that trigger unexpected associations.
