U.S. immigrant artists present virtual reality art installation on human migration

Following installations in Colombia, London, “Transeuntis Mundi” will be featured at art events in New York, Miami

NEW YORK – Nov. 21, 2019 – PRLog — Two South American creators will be presenting their multimedia art installation addressing the theme of global human migration at upcoming U.S. arts events.

Brazilian musician and transmedia artist Cândida Borges and Columbian visual artist, director and performer Gabriel Mário Velez will present “Transeuntis Mundi” at Rochester Institute of Technology’s annual Frameless Symposium 2019 November 21–22 and at Art Context Miami Exhibition December 3–8.

With a theme of human mobility, Transeuntis Mundi is an immersive work about the millennial diasporas and migrations that formed a transcultural and transnational humanity. The work maps human cultural heritage in four diverse countries on three continents, including Brazil, Colombia, the United States and the United Kingdom. The project captures the audio and visual memories of people around the world in order to represent the mobility and fluidity of human cultures, creating an archive of the human experience via an immersive art experience.

Borges and Velez partnered in 2018 to develop an interdisciplinary project at the intersection of the arts and social sciences, creating a dialogue around the theme of Latin American diasporas. Both artists are scholars and researchers at the Universidad de Antioquia and the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro. The pair based their work on Borges’ PhD thesis research at Plymouth University in the U.K. and at the Universidade de Antioquia in Colombia.

The Transeuntis Mundi project was launched in September in Colombia at the International Festival of Books and Culture, where more than 2,500 people visited the art installation. It was presented simultaneously in London at the “Digital Research in Humanities Arts 2019” conference.

The project is now touring in exhibitions and conferences about technology and the arts.
