Virtual Reality artists nominated for Lumen Prize

Transeuntis Mundi, a technological and artistic wonder that has made waves across the globe for its exploration of transmedial art, was recently recognized with a nomination for the 2022 Lumen Prize.

Transeuntis Mundi Derive 01 is by two Latin artists and immigrants based in New York City, Brazilian artist Cândida Borges and Colombian artist Gabriel Mario Vélez was one of four selected from around 1500 international works.

“The project is an artistic proposal across music, cinema, performance, stories and narratives,” Borges said. “We define the finished work as transmedial art.”

The work proposes to capture the sound and visual memory of people, culture and locations to generate an archive of human cultural heritage.

“It’s about the story of the millennial passersby that have been crisscrossing the world and aims to evoke the power of ancestry, identity and legacy through stories of everyday life,” Vélez said.

This project was created in 2018 and pulled from their own migration experience and cultural backgrounds as a reference point for creating their tech-based artwork.

In the latest iteration, Derive 01, New York, Austin, Rochester and McAllen are presented, each selected for their blend of cultures, genetics and borders.

Other countries explored by the project include the UK, Brazil and Colombia.

Over 4000 people have experienced the exhibitions throughout Colombia, New York, Miami, Rio de Janeiro, Rochester, China, Ireland, UK, among others.

“It’s a radically immersive way to experience art and culture,” Borges said. “Visitors are invited to experience the power of traveling through cultures and locations by virtually migrating inside the VR headset.”

“During the work, visitors experience soundscapes, landscapes, people, languages, bodies, costumes, environments, seasons and small spontaneous narratives of everyday life events,” Vélez said. “Virtual reality is the top medium for immersive art in today’s world. This work is a cutting-edge example of where the medium can go.”

Voices and language, cars, music, trains, bells, wind, claps, and phone rings move and become a spatialized experience, unveiling small spontaneous narratives of everyday life events, he said.

The exhibition can currently be viewed online through the project website in two free session daily to be booked.

Future exhibitions are planned at the Manizales Festival in Colombia, along with a festival of innovation in Rio de Janeiro and their Museum of Contemporary.
