Taavi Tulevi's hypnotizing thought patterns
"Thought Patterns" will be opened, which consists of digital art and music.
Future geometric op art has been created digitally using at least three completely different programs.
Although the images are algorithmic, they are not algorithmically generated, but mostly drawn
and digitally enlarged. They are largely inspired by the idea of creating images that we seem to have seen
and known in our imaginations for a long time. "I like the idea that the thing-in-itself and the thing-for-us
could be the same, and they can't be misunderstood. You can only see what is shown in these pictures.
Seemingly simple pictures have relatively complex geometry, to grasp which you need to forget yourself
while looking at them." In his opinion, the future pictures are as hypnotizing as the music he makes
and accompanies the exhibition.
Taavi Tulev is well-known in the world of electronic music, but for the last 16 years, to balance this,
he has also been thoroughly engaged in recording unspoiled natural sounds and creating sound
environments from them, including this year he released Estonia's first thunderstorm vinyl record.
A visual arts section has also been added inspired by nature, visions, and mathematics.
Future images play with the viewer through the language of form and geometry
and take into account his ability to perceive colors and patterns. He pays special attention
to the precise and clean form of the images, the maximum use of technological possibilities,
and pushing the boundaries play a big role. The visual creation of the future will be aesthetic,
timeless, and unambiguous, but at the same time wordless and recognizable.
Taavi Tulevi's exhibition is another good example of how OKAPI Gallery constantly expands
its understanding of the playground of visual art and integrates different techniques.
Although the gallery focuses primarily on photography, glass, graphics, and sculpture,
it represents and combines all kinds of other media, starting with mixed media and special technological solutions.
The exhibition "Mõttemustrid" will remain open at the OKAPI gallery (Niguliste 2, Tallinn) until June 4, 2023.
The gallery is open Mon-Fri from 11 am to 6 pm, Sat from 11 am to 4 pm, closed Fri-Tues.
The opening event of the exhibition is also part of the art program of Tallinn Music Week.
