Meet the artists #3
with Laura Mannelli, Fingerlab, Steve Gerges
Meet the Artists lets visitors find out more about the artists involved in Multiplica. In these quick but focused exchanges, artists share with the audience their unique approaches to the fields of digital arts and digital culture. Get a glimpse into the artists' minds: their works, their creations, and visions for the future.
Join us at one of our cozy spaces at the Rotondes to listen in and ask your burning questions. Or get involved online through our live stream on the Rotondes’ social media channels. All talks are free for anyone to attend. You don’t need to be an expert in art and technology, all that’s required is a curious mind.
Luxembourg artist/architect Laura Mannelli uses digital art as a means of exploring and reflecting on digital cultures, virtual realities and the new paradigms they generate. At the 2017 Triennale Jeune Création she exhibited an immersive digital art installation inspired by The Divine Comedy, titled Near Dante Experience. Back at the Rotondes in 2018 she mixed golf and night clubs in Club The Golf, an interactive architectural installation designed for 18 – Une nouvelle approche du minigolf interactive exhibition.
