Conjured Reality, the 3D creations of Shawn Chiki
Saturday March 5th
w/ accompanying sounds by Icky Reels
Conjured Reality is a series of playful architectural experiments sculpted inside of virtual-reality multiplayer experiences. New forms, spaces, and structures are designed to bridge into our physical world, wielding FDM 3D printing technology to spawn the digital ideas into tangible, physical objects.
Shawn Chiki is a Canadian/American multimedia artist forever bouncing between cities, collaborations, and experiments rooted in Buffalo NY, and Toronto. A formal education in architectural design and media set the foundations for experience building in both physical and digital spaces. Always evolving in their practices, Chiki chases the unexplored with a tendency for maximalism, abstraction, creative storytelling, and unbound energy.
Chiki is currently an educator at BCAT (Buffalo Center for Arts & Technology) and UB Department of Architecture.
From Cleveland to Buffalo, Adrian Bertolone aka Ay Fast // ICKY REELS// is a solo artist, Producer/DJ for BEANS (Antipop Consortium) who recently released a solo album Plips in October.
Reviews from Plips:
"Supersonic swirls, wild beats spinning madly, warped voices and tings, the Top 10 pop tunes run amok... beautiful jagged music..." -Foxy Digitalis
"Distinct production techniques... scattered dream sequences sparking into and out of focus... an engaging, mind-altering exploratory sojourn." -Igloo Magazin
