Curated Art selection
Curated by Niio Curatorial
During the last decade we feel technology should be everywhere and nowhere at the same time, perfectly integrated into our everyday experience, or our homes, without intruding. The future art audience has technology in their everyday life; through technology they experience the world around them, and this is what connects them to
The Niio Featured Exhibition is dedicated to the moving image and public space, aiming to present curated screening programs to a wider audience. It is based on the idea of mediating works from an extended list of contemporary video artists, through new digital exhibition formats and cloud-based platforms.

Desmond Leung Le Sen
RED color has a variety of meaning and symbols throughout the history of mankind. It represents desire, power, creation, happiness, vitality, and authority, it connects to the earth energy of root chakras, that represents the human foundation and the feeling of being grounded. RED ONE depicted the birth of the power, blossom and evolved into the majestic landscape of energy. On the other hand, if human misuse the power, RED will be transformed into a signal and warning of the destruction and chaos. RED # is a series of artworks assemble the use of power, questioning the idea of human desire and creation by employing ink art, moving image, and virtual reality into a multi-dimensional art form.
Desmond explores contemporary visual language and meaning by merging the mediums of abstract painting, moving image, digital sculpture and cross reality (XR) into a multi-dimensional art form. Current research focused on questioning the concept of reality, attempted to understand and reinterpret the representation of nature in the multi-dimensional layers. Also exploring how artificial intelligence can manifest new perception and aesthetic when working with painting and XR art in an augmented living environment. Desmond’s works are inspired by metaphysics, ancient culture, the human body, cosmology, mythology and spirituality. His work has been exhibited internationally and worked on the site-specific screen based commissioned art projects for more than a decade.
Wind of Linz - Troemploeil
From the Wind Series Data Paintings A series of poetic Data Paintings developed with a range of unique custom software using a one-year data set collected from site specific city locations to read, analyze and visualize wind speed, direction and gust patterns along with time and temperature at ten-second intervals throughout the year. The resulting generated artwork is a series of dynamic chapters, each using data as a material to create a unique visual interpretation of the interaction between the environment and the city. Each chapter brings different aspects of the data sets to life with distinct and varied painterly, emotive aesthetics, making the invisible beauty of wind as a natural phenomenon visible. Each of the chapters focuses on one distinct characteristic of the wind within the specific location. Wind of Linz – Trompe L’Oeil & Hidden Landscapes, explores the paradox of a soft, gentle wind blowing toward the site in the harsh cold of winter.
Refik Anadol is a media artist and director born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1985. Currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. He is a lecturer and visiting researcher in UCLA’s Department of Design Media Arts. He is working in the fields of site-specific public art with parametric data sculpture approach and live audio/visual performance with immersive installation approach, particularly his works explore the space among digital and physical entities by creating a hybrid relationship between architecture and media arts.
Siebren Versteeg’s works exemplify a continued exploration of the intersections between code (Langue) and abstraction. Here, algorithms are set loose to paint continuous yet indeterminate compositions in real-time. The meditative results confront their viewer with a kind of digital sublime where process supersedes resolution, and all is subject to the winds of change. Despite their embrace of continuous flux however, the meticulous rendering of the painterly that is at the heart of these algorithms imbue them with a reverent nod to the complex and often debated history of the viscous medium, asking us again to consider the notion of what a painting might and might not even be.
After Indifference renders a continuous abstraction made with small brushes of varying personality and intention. In this work, the additive process of mark making builds ad infinitum, resolving only at the point when the video loops.
Versteeg was born in 1971 in New Haven, Connecticut and currently lives and works in New York. He received his B.A. from the Art Institute of Chicago and his M.F.A. from University of Illinois at Chicago.
Siebren Versteeg’s practice critically engages the systems used for disseminating images in our culture, as well as with the technology used to create them. He mines the digital realm for content and manipulates algorithms to create artworks that balance choice and chance.

Mok earned her M.F.A. in Experimental & Documentary Arts at Duke University in 2013. She has been exposed to an interdisciplinary learning and working environment since her undergraduate education in the School of Creative Media through her major in the Critical Inter-Media Laboratory (2003-2007).
GENERATIVE PAINTER - BOUQUETS
In this body of works the artist employs computer generated programs to create animated paintings based on nature footage. Landscape is created using multiple interventions, simulating and inspired by Nature landscape.
Streams of Flowers, Set No. 2
Observing flowers in wild nature, in search of botanical inspiration, and re imagining them in the digital realm by using computer generated graphic algorithms and physical simulations of flowers in 0 gravity scenarios led to this body of works. This work series reflects on the intersection of the virtual and the physical realms, slowly shifting between order and chaos, and introduces a vast space with an imaginary meditative flower motion stream.
Ronen Tanchum creates works at the intersection of art, technology and interaction, and explores the encounter between perceptions of human , social reality and between digital and physical experiences. Conducting social experiments art pieces that creates a visual dialog around the subject of digital art and its implementations into physical experiential of participates. Embracing technologies use and mix media art forms.
Waterfall Experiment #1
Waterfall is a simulation of water created entirely with physics based algorithms. It speaks to a long history of waterfalls and water features in architecture from Roman baths, the follies of the picturesque to the modern fountains and man-made features of contemporary urban spaces.

The Melody Of The Flower
Digital exploration of symmetry and evolution of beauty. Referring to ancient arts of flower arrangements. A study of the balance of design while maintaining a natural flow. Recreated generatively.
In this series of works Nico Tone deals with digital interpretations of abstract painting works. The repetitive slow movement of the different fragments constructs new evolving compositions and conveys a powerful, ever changing yet relaxing and meditative visual abstract rhythms.
Nico Tone is a collective of media artists based in Asia. Their artistic practice comes from exploration of relationships between traditional fine art and new emerging technologies. Nico Tone’s works include video-paintings, interactive and generative experiences.
