Trailer: The Creators Project
With the emergence of new recording and editing equipment, each time more sophisticated, we have seen the emergence of new ways of documenting the artworks and, in some cases, to go beyond and overcome the experience of physical contemplation.
Do we lose the mystique of the original work? In the Digital Age maybe we should talk more about unique experiences.
ArtFutura begins a new section dedicated to these new audiovisuals: Artworks. With works by artists such as Zaha Hadid, Vincent Morisset and Paul Friedlander.
