Databendings of The Mind | Kaliptus Solo Exhibition | Fish With Braids Gallery

Fish With Braids Gallery presents

Art Exhibition by KALIPTUS
Curated by UTA BRAUSER

For DATABENDINGS OF THE MIND, I exploresd glitch art and databending techniques with photography which I eventually began to print & cut, and later on collaged and reassembled the best of the glitches into "psychedelic gems" that are both digitally-crafted and hand-made. The work itself translates as a sort of stream of consciousness and also manifests itself as abstracted reflections of my past experiences.

The opening reception is December 7th, 6-11pm
exhibit dates: Dec 7 - 16 2012

Morpheus from Kaliptus on Vimeo.

With the rise of technology and the intrusive distractions like TV, Facebook, iPhones, etc., the old dream gods are dying. Watch Morpheus, god of sleep and dreams dissolve into a cluster of technological noise, as the the digital world rises and invades the collective subconsciousness of humanity.

Video Art by Kaliptus & Vincent Zambrano

Orchard Windows Gallery presents,
BINARY DREAMS, a two man show..
Double Solo Art Exhibition by VINCENT ZAMBRANO & KALIPTUS

September 5th - September 19th Opening Reception: September 5th 6pm-9pm

Dino Eli presents “Binary Dreams”, a multimedia and fine arts exhibition by VINCENT ZAMBRANO & KALIPTUS. The Contemporary arts exhibition will take place from September 5nd 2012, to September 19th at the Orchard Windows Gallery in the lower east side of New York city. Opening reception is on the 5th from 6pm to 9pm. “Binary Dreams” brings forth a fusion of the technical brain and the intuitive in the form of new innovative arts that depict the vast and transpersonal experiences of dreams. With the advent of new technology emerging and novelty dropping new seeds constantly into the oceans of the mind, the abstractions of dreaming are constantly fractalling out into an explosion of new diverse realities that become available for exploration when one abandons the senses to sleep and plunges inwards. Vincent Zambrano and Kaliptus are bringing back the raw dream elements and translating them out into the mundane world. The art works themselves vary in style and medium but work together like a perfect blend of opposite dualities. They create an overall effect of wholeness, diversity and surreal futurism. Vincent Zambrano and Kaliptus are both award winning artists from the east coast. This show is something not to be missed so be sure to attend if you are in the area.

Elves in Hyperspace

Inter-dimensional elves flying in a spaceship manage to crash and penetrate through hyper-space, gaining access to the controls behind the scenes of mundane reality. Consider it a circus space ride of its own, one that will forever change the fabric of the universe and the laws of physics therein. This animation was originally created in 2005 during my college years in the School of Visual Arts (SVA). Audio and color has been digitally re-mastered.
