PETER BURR, digital art at the intersection of technology, ecology & society, Daniela Silva, δημοσίευση στο CLOT Magazine [10/3/2023]
Peter Burr is an American artist who explores the complex relationship between technology, society, and the natural world. One of his most notable works is BOOM TOWN, a virtual neighbourhood built entirely on the blockchain. This piece is a commentary on how technology is changing how we interact with each other and how it is creating new forms of value and exchange.
Burr’s artistic practice explores the relationship between technology, society, and the natural world. His practice often engages with tools of the video game industry in the form of immersive cinematic artworks, and his works often feature intricate, surreal animated sequences that challenge the viewer’s perception and understanding of the world. Burr is also interested in how humans interact with the natural world and the impact of technology on this relationship. He creates complex, immersive digital landscapes that evoke the beauty and complexity of the natural world.
Collaboration and community are also key themes in Burr’s work. He often works with other artists and creatives to create complex, multi-layered projects that explore various themes and ideas. In this sense, his work is part of a more significant movement in contemporary art that seeks to create new forms of social engagement and collective action.
Respected curator and organiser Burr has curated numerous exhibitions and festivals worldwide, including the Cartune Xprez series. His innovative use of technology, engagement with social and ecological themes, and deep engagement with the history of animation and video art make him an important figure in the contemporary art world.
