On 8 July a new collection of digital editions titled Digital Decade SE curated by Designcollector Network launched on Sedition. The exhibition features works by Krista Kim, Aristarkh Chernyshev, Eliska Sky, Azamat Akhmadbaev, Joëlle, Dimitri Daniloff and Grégoire A. Meyer.
The Digital Decade SE 2020 project is the latest in the Digital Decade series of events by DesignCollector. Digital Decade is the brainchild of Designcollector founder Arseny Vesnin, who has curated and coordinated public phygital art events in London, St Petersburg and Barcelona since 2013. Since then Designcollector have presented the work of more than 150 pioneering, exploratory and celebrated artists working between the physical and the digital, as well as partnering with organisations including OFFF, Ello, FutureFest and Creative Debuts. In 2017 Designcollector collaborated with Sedition to present Digital Decade 5 at Ugly Duck in London, for which Sedition held an open call for artists making screen-based works.
The Digital Decade SE 3D exhibition
Digital Decade events are live artistic responses to current changes (geopolitical, environmental, social) influencing life in the digital age. For the latest iteration, held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, artists have creative speculative and critical comments on how phygital life may change post-pandemic. The artists participating present works in a range of media including photography, audiovisual collaborations, 3D digital sculptures and animation.
On 8 July Designcollector release Digital Decade SE (Special Edition) 2020, featuring seven digital limited edition artworks, available to collect on Sedition as a full set or individually. The works can also be experienced in a 3D/VR exhibition which features a mixtape by Ben Paul.
