The creating of the digital art collective - d#avantgarde
d#avantgarde is pushing the boundaries of art by harnessing the potential of new technologies. As a multidisciplinary artists' collective, d#avantgarde explores the uncharted territory of digital art, examining what it means and what it can be. Their goal is to define a new aesthetic that is unique to the digital age and takes advantage of the latest technological advancements. Whether through virtual reality, AI-generated art, or other innovative media, d#avantgarde is at the forefront of the digital art revolution. In addition to creating cutting-edge digital art, they aim to create a platform for critical discourse, offering a space for a critical examination of current issues and questions.
