Descrizione Opera / Biografia

The triptych titled ”Transitions” by 06D Atelier explores the impact of significant life events and global circumstances on human emotions and perception. Each artwork utilizes a computer-generated morphing technique between contrasting words to visually represent the transformative process.
Before / After
With Before/After 06D Atelier want to emphasize the importance of life-changing events. It consists of a computer-generated morphing between the words Before and After. This digital artwork represents the artists’ sentiment about 2020, when long-lasting isolation and worrying events generated indelible memories. Memorable moments, in general, create traces in memory closely linked to time; we remember the time when they were happening and all the changes that they’ve created. These traces in our brains record our feelings and our perceived reality before, during and after any important events of our lives. This concept is brought into the physical world thanks to the artists’ first production of limited edition Giclée prints on Hahnemühle paper.
Love / Hate
In 2020 global events enfeebled humanity’s confidence and 06D Atelier continue to depict this turbulent transitional period. Feelings are not exempted from being affected by the passing of time and crucial events that influences our lives, moreover, they’re responsible for our ways of thinking and behaviours. With this morphing between the words ’love’ and ’hate’, 06D Atelier visualise the transition between opposite feelings where old convictions are disintegrated and a change in consciousness is consolidated.
More / Less
Our generation is facing an unprecedented crisis, we’ve been hit by events that questioned our consumerist and materialistic world. What remains after an economic crisis? Do we really have less than before? A self-preservation instinct is triggered in order to survive the new reality, a new precious store of experience forms a new consciousness of our existence. Aided by computer, 06D Atelier depict the change of our perception of the reality, when what we thought was normal before now is superfluous.
06D Atelier is an Italian artist duo based in London founded by Mauro Frag and Francesca Adami. They explore and modify the relationships between objects, environment and humans, experimenting with materials, shapes and functionality. The different training of the two allows the studio to operate in a wide range of projects, bringing together different influences to create revolutionary projects interweaving design with art.
Their first work together are sculptural furniture pieces characterized by distinctive geometrical and minimalistic shapes that embody their artistic ethos. Continuing their exploration, they have delved into influence of mathematics on nature’s aesthetics and phenomenology of perception.
Their artistic journey has led them to create intricate and meaningful works such as The Orbit, inspired by the concentric patterns prevalent in nature, and Entropia, which captures the interplay between orderly and chaotic arrangements in the universe. Notably, their award-winning sculpture, Trans-forma, serves as a snapshot of a transformative state, completed during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.
Their creative journey has seen them venture into the realm of digital art, merging virtual and physical realities. Through their innovative use of technology, they have embarked on projects such as the self-produced virtual exhibition, Rules and Chaos. This ground-breaking exhibition - one of the first of its kind during the pandemic - showcases their ability to adapt and create in the digital realm, blurring the lines between the real and the virtual.
Moreover, 06D Atelier has explored the possibilities of digital media and augmented reality, bringing their artworks to life in new and unexpected ways. Through interactive installations and experiences, they invite viewers to engage with their art in a dynamic and immersive manner. By incorporating augmented reality into their practice, they expand the possibilities of storytelling and artistic engagement. By embracing digital media, 06D Atelier demonstrates their commitment to pushing artistic boundaries and embracing the ever-evolving landscape of contemporary art.
