‘Capturing the dance movements created 3D sculptures – your body becomes the brush. The beauty of a human body becomes visible. The hologram can be seen as a stage – they tell a story of the movement and the visual impact of Diana Vishneva’s creations. It is a prototype of the future performances and art where reality merges with projections. Transcend time through movement. Transcend space through holograms – the reality is a projection.’
Blum’s approach to art and technology is to make tangible worlds from the digital. Using the technological element of 3D scanning, she recreates moments of time and motion. The perceived imperfections of technological glitches are juxtaposed with delicate patterns producing an aesthetic that highlights a digital interpretation of dynamic space.
Blum combines design and art with a focus on complex systems and emerging technologies. Her inspiration comes from the cohabitation of nature, contemporary materials and technology with the spiritual journey of the human being. Her projects develop form and pattern through digital and physical manifestations.
