TOUR: Digital Realities
arx anima is an award-winning creative company based in Vienna that specialises in high-quality 2D/3D animation, VFX (visual effects) for film and advertising, and games & apps. In the heart of the studio, the "Artist Room", you can watch the artists at work.
The Vienna Office for Media and Arts International (OMAi) was founded in 2007. Since then it combines artistic services with the development of innovative software and stands for a spontaneous and collaborative approach to digital creativity. Central to this is the combination of analogue sensitivity and digital technology, which helps bring new forms of visual communication onto the street, the stage and the living room as projection paintings. OMAi is internationally known for its fantastic animated worlds through numerous performances and installations.
The founders of Artivive, Sergiu Ardelean and Codin Popescu, want to revolutionise the art market with the idea of creating and experiencing art with the help of augmented reality. With the free app, selected exhibits can be animated with pictures or videos on a smartphone or tablet. Artivive opens up a new dimension in art and gives artists, museums and galleries the opportunity to combine analogue and digital art. Participants are invited to bring the current exhibition in the Artivive Artspace digital to life with the Artivive App.
