CreArt Network > Dual exhibition in Kaunas (Lithuania) > Techno-Illusion

Living in the environment based on technology we encounter daily problems that the use of the technology provokes. But we also encounter a certain change of our reality. Information about our own selves – what we do for work and play, our needs and worries, even our looks – is fragmented and multiplied, which encourages us to explore the realness of reality. It has become common to work while staring at a computer screen, to entertain ourselves by browsing the Internet, and to kill the time in traffic jams by watching on social media the messages of friends and people we barely know.

The developing technologies encourage professional artists to look for new means of artistic expression, for new combinations, innovative realization of artistic ideas and original revelations of the problems of reality and virtuality of our time.

The organisers invite artists to interpret those changes, applying various means of artistic expression, expressing their attitude to what they perceive as real reality and what, according to them, is an other reality, artificially created by means of technology, with possible contraversial influence on the society.

Participation in exhibition is open to: contemporary visual artists, profesionally representing the fields of visual and fine arts; there is no age limit. Works of two artists only will be selected for the exhibition, one of them must represent the city of Kaunas.
