In a new series of prints, produced from their 5 channel video installation Metaverse: We are at the end of something (2020), Keiken x Ryan Vautier present new images created within their expansive world building practice.
Peaking through blossoms, Biome (2020) focuses its lens upon one of the machines created by CGI artist Ryan Vautier. Posed like a reclining geisha, unaware that they are being watched, Vautier’s Fan Bot is caught in a moment of rest, it’s anthropomorphised head tilted and fan resting gently upon a time worn stone.
Metaverse: We are at the end of something (2020) was first screened at MIRA, a digital arts festival held annually in Barcelona since 2011, and an online gamified experience version of the project has recently opened with the Yerevan Biennale. It was produced by Keiken with Ryan Vautier and Sakeema Crook.
