Presented by synthesis gallery.
A modular pavilion constructed for The Wrong Biennial, Symphony for the Metaverse links a series of virtual 3D architectural environments inside the web browser. Like a spatial montage composed of modulated fragments, sound and sculptural works lay the groundwork for a speculative utopian architecture that eschews any pretense of compartmentalized logic.
Blurring the boundaries between site, sound and experimental media installation, Symphony for the Metaverse gathers artists, musicians, creative collectives, and architects into the mythopoeic realm of the virtual.
Collaborators include Lea Bertucci, Commonolithic, Matthew D. Gantt, Wolfgang Gil, Jenn Grossman + Michael Clemow, Amanda Gutierrez, Kurt Hentschlager, Sophie Kahn, Olivia McGilchrist, Joseph Nechvatal, Some Place Studio, Colette Robbins, Shervin Saremi, Lisa Schoenberg, CT::SWaM, and more TBA.
The exhibition officially opened 11/18/2021 in Mozilla Hubs, and includes scheduled events, workshops, and talks throughout the duration of its run.
Exhibition dates: November 18, 2021 – March 1, 2022
