AVAKIN #opencall is a screen shot based digital exhibition that exists in a parallel between the game space of Avakin Life and the contribution of 20 different artists that occupy the same visual space.
The show intends to appropriate a digital gallery with the use of the avatar presence, blending visions between game and artwork.
The capturing of angles through the screen shot process not only allows the viewer to create a new photographic still reality of what is seen as digital body
but implement an outside vision of where elements are going to be inserted, therefore, taking advantage of already rendered values, light measurements and UV textures.
Digital realities exist forever as code and whether or not they are altered in their source, visual constructs of space might still offer many kinds of fields of exploration.
Utilizing the photographic qualities of capturing the own constructions of reality, and inserting foreing elements so as they look part of something bigger,
visually adventuring perceptions of digital presence, throwing out of bounds visions on paths already traced inside programmed spaces.
This exhbition is a pavillion of The Wrong New Digital Arts Biennale
