The exhibition “Sip My Ocean” is one of the most comprehensive Art Museum in Australia. The museum presents the spectrum of work of Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist. It exhibits her work from her early days of single-channel videos of the 1980s to some large-scale installations done recently.

The work that she has done is an ode to humans who have created something spectacular and out-of-the-world with their intellect. They have perceived beauty in its raw nature and using emotions created something we will always look at in awe.

MoMAR Inaugural Show ‘Hello, We’re From The Internet’

The MoMAR is basically a collective of eight Internet artists who created their own Augmented Reality gallery at the Jackson Pollock room of the New York City Museum of Modern Art.

The project, “Hello, we’re from the internet” took over without permission and definitely created some good headlines. The purpose behind was to make a statement against the elitism in the field of art.

By downloading the MoMAR app, anyone can view their work through a phone.

One thing that stands out is the use of AR technology, which turned Pollock’s White Light painting into an interactive game. Artist Gabriel Barcia-Colombo created this feature.

White Light painting is one of the last works of Pollock made in 1956 just before he died.

Museum designs that are coming up today are architectural designs of the future. These are just a few names from the most anticipated projects of modern buildings and hold much more prominence in this modern world.
