The Art Project section will investigate the theme of Perception presenting a with a bespoke installation “Infinite Perspective” by Will Teather, “The Holographic Theatre” of the Venezuelan pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 installation of Tangram Studio and MDH Hologram and the in house installation “An Open Letter to the Art Collector” designed by ARTROOMS founder Cristina Cellini Antonini.
“A Holographic Theater EyeMagic”
MDHhologram U.K. & Studio Tangram Italy
During Expo Milano 2015, the Venezuela pavilion used Studio Tangram/MDHhologram to enclose its visitors in the singing, dancing and nature of this beautiful South American country! Sounds, movements, and colours. The energy of the dancers, perfectly punctuated by holographic and lighting effects, quickly captured the viewers’ imagination. Throughout the show, the audience could truly interact with the hologram: diving in the clear water of Los Roques archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, breathing the air of Caracas while travelling by cable car, and dancing with dolphins – getting the real Venezuelan experience.
To create the hologram for the Venezuelan pavilion we used a 6m x 4m EyeLiner™, with background images. Contents and equipment were conceived for the viewer to interact with the hologram.
At the opening ceremony, the groundbreaking holographic showcase was welcomed with rounds of applause and cheers. Thanks to Studio Tangram, at the end of the event, the Venezuela stand won the Silver Awards for content and design, for the great representation of cultural contents. Now Studio Tangram achievements are certainly well-known also in South America.

Open Letter to the Art Collector
Curated by Cristina Cellini Antonini
I really can’t say…
Why am I an artist?
Is it my nature?
Which colors make you smile today?
Who are you, collector?
The artist … does he collect ideas?
I really can’t say…
Each with their own perspective or perception of what it should be
Why you want “me”?
Together, is it so?
These are excerpts from “An Open Letter to the Art Collector”, first results of a series of experiments/installations/essays/works investigating the complexity of the relationship between the artist and the collector. From these first letters we have collected so far, it stands out how hesitations and blank canvas minded moments arise in the mind of the artist when confronted to the figure of the Art Collector. The installation is placed at the entrance of the fair because it intends to open the dialogue; to remind us that Art is not a monologue. It invites us to interact, to connect with the artist and the artwork. Seeking to uncover for the collector the secrets of the the person behind the work and introducing to the artist who will have to honor to become the guardian.This unveiling is perchance that very thing, that holds the art world Together. We still don’t know…. We invite you all to write us a letter and join us in the quest.
