Visionary Art Collective© is a Brooklyn-based art & education platform. Our mission is to uplift artists & educators through magazine features, virtual exhibitions, podcast interviews, and our mentorship program.
About this Exhibition: Nature and technology are polar opposites, both crucial to the fabric of this generation. They are the two areas in which we are compelled to spend our time or where we strive to spend our time. The sensibility of nature is merging with the increasing tech of our time in a synchronicity that we do not expect. Technology is becoming an extension of the human body and environmental landscape, a condition destined to intensify over time. "Nature and Tech, An Inevitable Interconnectedness" explores the interdependence of natural and man-made, real and surreal, rural and urban tangible and spiritual verities. It is the underlying and eternal interconnectedness of all things that is of the highest spiritual value. The binary preconception of technology as evil and nature as good is superannuated. Acknowledging our two current parallel realities brought together in compatibility, creates a sense of balance. This exhibition is a lyrical perspective for a harmonious relationship between technology and nature, a fantasy of symbiotic unity.
This virtual exhibition is open to artists who explore landscape and the natural world, as well as artists who focus on technology and other man-made constructs in their work.
