The Bygone Days
The beginnings of Digital Artwork movement belongs to the Terra Vayú, afterward renamed in Abbildungen Varieté. A group of artists, exploring the area of Modern Expressionism, Surrealism, Synthesizers and Ritualistic Music, back in the eighties. Abbildungen Varieté was the second important name in Yugoslav/Slovenian alternative scene besides Laibach. The early multimedia works were triggered by reactions to many weird spiritual and political events in the past decades.
About Digital Artwork Association
We were in no way non-visible; non-existing; non-active. On the contrary, we were, as far as artistic expression is concerned, constantly present, for decades. Emerged out of analog and manual painting in art, although we are quite unknown in the area of digital art.
Digital Artwork Association was established after Slovenian independence and has participated in a series of conceptual studio music performances and surreal painting exhibitions, between 1983 and 2002.
In the meantime, we have become a perfectly consistent, homogeneous organism. A coherent symbiosis of durable Earth tissue, coated with the finest, subtle fibers of the Creation. For decades, we are relying on human goodwill, while pursuing our quest; standing behind environmental activism, digital art, and struggle for inner peace. Presented by: digital artwork; imaginary sphere; immanent art; meta creations; pandromeda; sephiras; non-visible; peace traveler; imaginary art … In this quest for a tribute, our future remains unregistered, unrecorded and imaginary.
Even though Digital Artwork Association avoids the status of the association on the physical location, it is nevertheless imaginary or visionary theorization. First of all, it emphasizes great importance to Surreal, Imaginary and Transcendent, under the circumstances, which are powered by the Immanent Transcendent Spirit — the Omnipresent, a.k.a. the Ultimate Dreamer, to which, all space and time events and incidents on this world, are submerged.
Digital Artwork Association is a reflection and response of modern space and time, to relentless frequencies produced by the electrified digital world, as it is totally and unavoidably, captured and embedded in the global nexus. Our primary activism is, first of all, the outcome and consequence of well-optimized hardware and its renderings.
