HUMANVERSE – New ecosystems of the web3 between performing arts, technology and post-human

May 26, 2023 - 19:30 - 21:00 EEST

The Espronceda Institute of Art & Culture in Barcelona will host the presentation of artist Martin Romeo’s “Humanverse” project, winner of the Italian Council (11th edition, 2022) on May 26th, 2023.

Humanverse is a project that visually reflects on the themes and tools of recent years, in which the metaverse and artificial intelligence have exponentially increased information, creating new imaginaries and communities of inhabitants. Martin has worked on themes of synthetic corporeality, performativity in virtual spaces, artificial ecosystems, and digitalized biological and organic forms.

During the presentation, Martin will showcase the research projects he has developed on the Metaverse made on Spatial, as well as elaborations made primarily through prompts, using various platforms such as Stable Diffusion and Runway. Through the use of virtual reality headsets, the audience will be able to enter these environments and share a unique, participatory, and immersive experience.

Humanverse continues online following the artist’s instagram page where it is possible to consult the developments of the research and the final rest tution of the project in November 2023 at the Etopia Center for Art and Technology in Zaragoza. The artist will present the conclusions of the research project through various visual and physical experiences both with the headsets and with the building facade of the art center.

The Barcelona event represents an extraordinary opportunity to connect with new forms of artistic creation that combine technology and performance and to reflect on the dynamics involved in generating audiovisual content.

The artist

Martin Romeo is an Italian-Argentine visual artist who explores the relationship between nature and technology through various mediums, including dynamic sculptures, VR performances, and multimedia installations. His research enables him to interpret and intimately perceive the world, dividing his production into tangible and intangible works. Tangible works give shape to data, while intangible works return data in the form of experiences.

Martin is the coordinator of the MA in Visual Arts in the Digital Age at IED, lecturer at NABA in Milan and is represented by Reasoned Art – a digital art gallery.
