Reality of the virtual
I am not interested in virtual reality, but in reality of the virtual.
- Slavoj Žižek
Drawing allows to visualize ideas, events, analogies, paradoxes and influences. Drawing generates new knowledge, because when we draw we become familiar with the unfamiliar. The virtual becomes real.
Time plays a major role and influences every creative step of the process. It controls relationship between mind, eyes and hand. Time is virtual becoming real.
New hybrid creativity will emerge as an outcome of post-digital experiements and will free itself form expectations and traditions.
Zizek’s quote inspires next step in art making, asking us to stop and reflect on “what did we learn from virtual technology”. To answer this question, we need to step outside the mainstream spectacle and generate new, free images.
