Access to the Digital Earth digital art platform has been extended until February 1!

Virtual platform Digital Earth with 15 works of digital art of Russian artists opened on December 8. 

The Foundation for Support of Contemporary Art Winzavod and re:Store, a chain of Apple equipment stores, present a new project on digital art Digital Earth for the presentation of works by the finalists of the contest, held in autumn 2020. 

Leaders in the field of art and technology, Winzavod and the re:Store have teamed up to popularize modern technologies to make them more accessible and support creative potential. Such symbiosis of art and technology allowed to create a new virtual platform, which has no analogues in Russia http://digitalearth.re-store.ru.

The platform was developed by an international team inspired by game-art. Journey through the virtual space, using the computer game engine, is an independent unlimited experience, where each visitor has the freedom to choose his or her own route to view the exhibition, to immerse himself or herself in the world of each artist, to move between the futuristic parts of the full architectural object of the gallery.

Technically, the idea of Digital Earth turned out to be feasible through the use of the open platform Unreal Engine and Pixel Streaming technology, which provides access to the game platform for a large number of viewers, regardless of the quality of Internet connection. Guests are assisted in navigating the gallery by viewers voiced by artificial intelligence. Sound for space was created by an ITSU audio artist. 

In the galleries 15 works of the finalists of the contest are presented. Among them are artists Julia Alexeenkova, Anna Gantimurova, Roman Golovko, Artem Go, Ales Lyalush, Kirill Zakomoldin, Anastasia Kvariani, Danila Lipatov, Alexey Ryabov, Anna Sapunova, Margarita Trushina, Zaurbek Tsugaev, Ksenia Sharapova, Varya Schuka, the group Gray Cake. 

The best works were selected by the expert council of the contest, which included prominent curators and artists in the field of digital visual art: AES+F, Antonio Geusa and Svetlana Taylor. Selection for the exhibition was one of the main criteria to determine the finalists of the competition. The jury included works created using digital technology: animation, video, painting, works created using computer graphics, neural networks, VR and AR.

Winzavod Foundation for Contemporary art and online platform TEO by Cosmoscow present a joint project to support and promote emerging artists. 

One of the key objectives of the project is to present to a wide audience, collectors and the professional community the most promising emerging artists who have received high praise from the expert council.

Sophia Trotsenko: "The partnership between Winzavod Foundation and Theo by Cosmoscow is a unique combination of a significant institution in the field of contemporary art with a platform that uses advanced technology to promote emerging artists. In this context we see the digital space as a necessary tool in contemporary art today to open it to a wide audience".

For Winzavod "New Names" is a strategic direction to support emerging artists, which is based on two rules: research and expertise. Before launching each project, the Center investigates the demand for specific tasks that the professional community has and engages experts from the chosen field to ensure a transparent selection procedure. 

Both these rules are also followed in the new joint project with the Theo platform. 

The experts of the first issue have become experts:

Alexander Burenkov, curator of the Cosmoscow Contemporary Art Support Foundation.

Antonio Geusa, PhD, leading expert in the art of new technologies, member of the expert council of "Open studios" of Winzavod,

Andrey Parshikov, is a tutor at the "Open Studios" of Winzavod, curator of the V-A-C Foundation and teacher at the Joseph Bakstein Institute of Modern Art,

Stanislav Shuripa, curator, artist, teacher at the Joseph Bakstein Institute of Modern Art.

For the first issue of the joint rubric experts were offered to choose artists from the participants of "Open studios". 

"Open Studios" is a project launched by the Foundation as part of the strategic direction of the Winery. The new names are also aimed at supporting young artists by combining the principles of the workshop, residence and art school on the basis of one of the leading Russian art institutions.

Starting from January 2021, new artists will appear in the rubric every week, and the list of the expert council will be supplemented with new names.
