The Takeover VR OVR follows up on FarmanFarmaian's first recent July-August 2021 physical NFT exhibition at the Kathryn Markle Gallery and his ongoing exploration into innovative creative tech solutions. Curated by Heidi Komarami, the exhibitiion featured the Balenciaga Takeovers presenting VR and 2D editions. Here Presented on Nouvelle Vague's Artgate Metaspace a selection of 13 takeovers will take you on a full VR immersion via the OCULUS QUEST HEADSET.
The challenge to create within restrictions has impacted my production exponentially, leading to the integration of innovative tech solutions within my creative palette while imposed spacial limitations fortified mental projections and the emergence of ethnosemiotic signs organically building on previous post tribal explorations visiting underlying patterns of archaic cultures. The consignment of these visual notes came together under the physical Takeover collection, layered on sketchbooks, cardboard, newspaper and curated magazines pages using acrylic markers and wallpaint. An evolving selection was subsequently augmented into NFT editions using 2D and 3D VR tools (Tilt Brush on the Oculus Headset ). The Takeover Collection will stay as my inaugural NFT collection and is still growing to this day.
