Samsung presents "Relative Realities" at Yuchengco Museum

In its most amazing experience, and at the same time most intimidating and at times creepy moment, two-dimensional and some three-dimensional art pieces made by our very own artists, which are currently on display at Yuchengco Museum, were recently turned into a more uh-mazing stuff by the world's digital leader, Samsung.

Dubbed as "Relative Realities: Creating New Dimensions of Art through Technology", last August 8, Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO) and Yuchengo Museum open to the public its digital art exhibit that features the works of print-maker Ambie Abaño, painter Ernest Concepcion, painter Jason Montinola, visual artist and designer Leeroy New, visual artist Arturo Sanchez, Jr., and multimedia and performance artist Josephine Turalba

Through the help of augmented reality technology, "Relative Realities" promises to be exciting and distinct as museum goers will experience the evolution of art no matter what kind of discipline they belong. Powered by Samsung’s Ultra High Definition Smart TVs and tablets, which is supplemented by a mobile app called FACETS, this exhibit, as explained by its curator, Jeannie E. Javelosa, is about shifting mindsets, shattering preconceived notions and disrupting the mind's acceptance to what it defines as truth.

"Art doesn't strive for perfection. It's in the imperfections." - Bensimon

When was the last time you got so crazy about your sense of style that you cut your pants, painted your shirt of even dye your shoes? For an artist wannabe like me, it’s actually a common thing. Yep, I did cut my pants, added some scratches, cut my shirts too to make it look cooler and just recently at the Bensimon DIY Day, I dyed my shoes, painted it a bit and voila! Look at my new artsy Bensimon shoes!

At Common Thread, Power Plant Mall in Makati City, a great number of artists and wannabes like me trooped to the store for the very first Bension DIY Day. A number of metro’s style and fashion bloggers together with some models and celebrities spent an afternoon of creativity in recreating an artistic and personalized Bensimon shoes.

With a light brown Bensimon shoes assigned to me, the moment I got there, I already saw some familiar faces getting busy with their own pairs of Bensimon. I, though clueless as the first few minutes, since Common Thread is a haven for creativity too, spent no more thinking and just let the creativity in me poured out.
