Immersive Zone The fair's signature Immersive Room returns to bring visitors a unique opportunity to experience innovative digital art through multiple senses. Created by one of the world's leading digital artists and a pioneer in the field of 3D animation, David Ariew. 'Quantum Transcendence' is an immersive visual meditation that exists in a dimension of pure light and meditative reflection. Presented in partnership with MakersPlace, the monumental piece represents the culmination of a style that the artist has been pursuing since January 2021. The symmetry and constant movement of 'Quantum Transcendence' creates a hypnotic sensation, absorbing viewers into a soothing journey that pulsates with light and energy. This experience will be extended by a presentation, also in the Immersive Zone, of five more intimate VR pieces by Ariew.

Digital Art Fair標誌性的沉浸式房間(Immersive Room)載譽歸來,讓參觀者通過多感官 體驗創新的數碼藝術。由全球數一數二的數碼藝術家兼3D動畫先驅David Ariew製作,沉浸 式藝術作品《Quantum Transcendence》存在於純光和反射的維度,堪稱視覺冥想。與 MakersPlace聯手推出,作品代表藝術家從2021年1月起建立的獨特風格。對稱性和持續的動 作產生催眠的感覺,令觀者猶如被攝入令人舒泰的視覺幻象和充滿能量的體驗中。Ariew的五 件數碼藝術作品將於亞洲版的Digital Art Fair內的Immersive Zone首度亮相。


Prestige Zone The biggest names in digital art feature in the Prestige Zone, which presents galleries and digital platforms that fuse technology with fine art expertise to pioneer the future of collecting. As the scope and reach of the Digital Art Fair expands on a global scale we are pleased to have galleries and institutions joining us from Asia, Europe and America. This year’s annual selection of the Artist of the Year presents two anonymous artists, Botto and Claire Silver, whose work presents very different perspectives on AI art. Considered together they expand the dialogue on the scope and diversity of the medium, and make significant strides into exploring artistic possibilities that would not have been achievable using traditional methods alone.
