SATELLITE is pleased to announce Transfer Galleries installation of DiMoDA – ‘The Digital Museum of Digital Art’ in conjunction with The Wrong New Media Biennale.
DiMoDA is a preeminent virtual institution and a virtual reality exhibition platform dedicated to the distribution and promotion of New Media Art. For it’s debut, DiMoDA will be presenting works by Jacolby Satterwhite (NY), Claudia Hart (NY/CHICAGO), Tim Berresheim (DE) and a project by Aquanet 2001 (Salvador Loza and Gibran Morgado) from Mexico City.
The atrium of the museum is architected and modeled in 3D by Alfredo Salazar-Caro. Viewers wear an Oculus Rift to enter DiMoDA, immediately approaching a number of ‘portals’ which can be used to access the ‘wings’ of the museum. Exhibiting artists have complete control to shape the virtual environment in which their works are installed inside the museum.
As a virtual institution, DiMoDA is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting and exhibiting Digital artworks from living New Media artists, while expanding the conscious experience of viewing Digital art in a Virtual space. The DiMoDA building is intended as a home for contemporary digital art and incubator for new ideas, as well as an architectural contribution to the Internet’s virtual landscape.
Conceived in 2013 by Alfredo Salazar-Caro and William James Richard Robertson, DiMoDA launches in November of 2015 with its first exhibition as a pavilion in The Wrong Biennale and a physical exhibition at TRANSFER in New York from November 14 through December 19th, 2015.
