Performing Pictures and FoAM have been invited to be p part of the worlds of "magic realism" of Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities at the MAD museum in N.Y. with the installation Immanentia. The exhibition illuminates the phenomenal renaissance of interest among artists worldwide in constructing small-scale hand built depictions of artificial environments and alternative realities, either as sculpture or as subjects for photography and video.
These are worlds of "magic realism" conceived and realized through intense engagement with materials, attention to detail, and concern for meaningful content. In this exhibition, the works are presented as dioramas, models, snow globes, and site specific installations, as well as through photographs and video. The artwork Immanentia was created for a special interface called i3DG, that turns 2D into 3D on iPhones, iPods and iPads - in the palm of your hand. Concept and production by Performing Pictures and FoAM / i3DG_Palm Top Theatre by Jitsuo Mase and Tom Nagae.
