The Bygone Days
The beginning of the Digital Art movement belongs to the Terra Vayú, afterward renamed Abbildungen Varieté. A group of artists, exploring the area of Modern Expressionism, Surrealism, and Ritualistic Music, back in the eighties. Abbildungen Varieté was the second important name in the 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 Art 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 music machines and painting, although we are quite unknown in the area of digital art.
Digital Art Association was established after Slovenian independence and has participated in a series of conceptual ritual music performances and painting exhibitions, between 1983 and 2002.
In the meantime, the remaining members have become perfectly consistent, homogeneous organisms. A coherent symbiosis of durable earth tissues, 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, surreal art, and struggle for inner peace. Traceable under domains: www.digitalartwork.org; www.imaginarysphere.com; www.metacreation.org; www.afterearth.net; www.imaginaryart.org; www.peacetraveler.org;
In this final quest for a tribute, our future remains unregistered, unrecorded, and imaginary.
Even though Digital Art Association avoids the status of the association on the physical location, it is nevertheless imaginary or visionary theorization. First of all, we emphasize great importance to Imaginary realism and Transcendent. We put time and space on a lie, mock the transience and celebrate 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 in this world, are submerged.
Digital Art 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. The outcome and consequences are visible in our well-optimized hardware and its renderings.
