As the age of technology progresses, mixed-reality art installations are becoming possible, ultimately expanding the field and tools of the contemporary artist. Marina Abramović is one of the brave creative souls that wholeheartedly embraces this movement and a clear example of that is her recent five-day performance piece at the Serpentine Gallery in London.
The exhibition was an example of mixed-reality art — a relatively new form of institutionalized creativity that combines virtual and augmented reality. Visitors of the gallery were able to put on a headset and perceive a 3D mobile simulation of Marina Abramović. The installation was completed in collaboration with production studio Tin Drum.
'The Life' mixed-reality art performance is an engaging example of the digitization of art that leaves the audience excited about the new possibilities that digital technology allows in the creative field.
