The producer Aristarkh Chernyshev exhibited a video sculpture that is part of his latest creations, within the framework of The Moscow International Festival “Circle of Light”. The piece is titled Userpic and is a digital frame that honors various works of art from around the world.
Chernyshev explains one of the main ideas of the piece: “(There) is a connection between a profile picture and a renaissance portrait of a wealthy city dweller, who hired an artist to make his portrait to represent himself to society i.e., a specific userpic to present oneself to the world”. The project presented is the result of an experiment between minimalism, ·D texture and LED RGB technology, where the programmed portraits will distort, entering a state of flux and variability.
