ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
by Julius Horsthuis
July 7th, 2018 - September 30th, 2018
In continuing with its mission of bringing together art, science and technology, ARTECHOUSE is proud to present the first immersive art exhibition that bridges the gap between the real and virtual world. Fractal Worlds by Julius Horsthuis is a visual journey through mind-bending sci-fi worlds and infinite 3D geometric patterns. Incorporating both projection and virtual reality elements, the exhibition transports viewers to another dimension.
Julius Horsthuis, whose previous work has been featured in the Academy Award winning “Manchester by the Sea” (2016) and VFX-breakthrough film “Koning van Katoren” (2012), considers his art - “a journey of discovery”, as he uncovers to the eye of the viewer the immensely unique fractal reality. Using fractals to create sci-fi type worlds is something of an outlier when it comes to visual art or motion graphics.
"The worlds I create aren’t designed – they don’t come from imagination or experience. The shapes hide in the fractal formulas. They exist in a mathematical reality, and all I do is explore those worlds and make them reveal themselves", Julius Horsthuis.
Horsthuis uses math and infinite geometric patterns to create mind-bending images and films that take our imagination on a journey. In a fractal reality, Horsthuis is much like a director or photographer in which he is operating in a world that already exists and it is up to him to search for the right fractal angle.
The solo exhibition includes 20 mins immersive experience projected over ARTECHOUSE's state of the art 270 degree projection walls as well as 8 (eight) different VR experiences for visitors to explore.
