The official opening of the exhibition took place in Moscow on February 27, 2015. The exhibition includes works by Russian media and audio artists, created especially for the project. It provides a fascinating impression with unrivalled quality of bright and clear images.
Eight halls, across M’ars’ two-storey building are constantly filled by unique works of media art from across Russia and the CIS.
The Life Zone interactive media maze is built on the principle of dominoes, where a change in one element results in changes in another.
This is a unique project that opened new opportunities for artists and provides unlimited possibilities to implement new technologies. It also lifts the veil of secrecy for a modern audience.
The Life Zone exhibition has rapidly gained popularity, and by popular demand was extended for another month and a half.
It’s now possible for the gallery and its interior to be transformed for an evening, or a weekend to host artists from all across Russia, and Europe, to show their works. Anything from a video montage, music or other interesting and unique interactive projects.
Thanks to the flexibility of Optoma’s projectors and the staff ot M’ars gallery, it has become a new multimedia cultural centre in Russia, where artists can experiment and visitors can experience something truly unique.
