Barcelona, ​​20 September (EFE).- The immersive exhibition “Cybernetic Dali” opened its doors today at the Ideal Digital Arts Center in Barcelona, ​​presenting and offering an unusual journey through the dreamlike universe created by the Empordà artist. First experience with Metaverse collectively and with freedom of movement in an artistic center.

The project, supported by the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation, develops the entire Dalinian poetic and dream universe in different rooms through large-scale, interactive installations, holograms, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.

In the early 1950s, Dali said he had an electronic brain; In the 70s he created a hologram together with the Nobel Prize in Physics; And in an interview he had already ventured that the future of art would be cybernetic, a term that could be equated with digital, a term not then in use.

He also states that “two-dimensionality is reduced” and that the Emporda artist himself “sought immortality through his work and thought how his work would transcend centuries.”

In an introductory space, the humanist personality of Dalí emerges, who abandoned Freudian references after his surrealist period to embrace scientists like Max Planck or Werner Heisenberg, a pioneering physicist in quantum mechanics.

Shown is the “humanist Dali” who, like Renaissance artists, “touches all the keys to creation and beyond” such as cinema, photography, jewelry, science, the visual arts; And on a 1960s film shoot in New York, a pioneering Dali can be seen talking about cybernetic art: “Art will be cybernetic or it won’t be,” he plainly affirms.

In the huge three-dimensional room, a thirty-minute film is projected in which the painter’s iconic works of the “Great Masturbator” follow each other, as well as the places that inspired Dali in the paintings, including the port of Cadaqués or the rocky coastline from the Costa Brava, with a soundtrack composed by Rafael Plana, who is a Produces and offers a techno version of Sardana or the popular “Cant dels Ocelles”.

In the final part of the film, three minutes created by artificial intelligence ‘play’ with Dali’s work.

After that, the visitor can participate in an interactive installation that reproduces the “Cybernetic Princess” on which elements of the Dalinian world are superimposed that each person can control from a small screen and that can be personalized with different colors.

Along the way, the humanist Dalí appears in a large-scale hologram, which digitally reproduces the ‘performance’ that meets artist actress Raquel Welch at the wheel of a “thinking machine” he created in New York. Medieval Majorcan philosopher Ramon Lull.

At the end of the exhibition, Star Space, the “Dalinian Metaverse” where the public, equipped with virtual reality goggles, sail through the Dalinian universe in a ship with Gala as a figurehead.

In this unique experience, the ship departs from the coast of Cadaqués and enters the sea full of lobsters, giant-footed elephants, eggs, the moon that opens like an egg to illuminate a rising sun, ants or a three-dimensional cross.

“Cyber ​​Dolly” is an international co-production of Layers of Reality and Exhibition Hub, and is scheduled to tour internationally over the next four years, during which the exhibition will be seen in over 30 cities, including London, Brussels, Zurich, Budapest, Munich, Turin, Rome, Cologne, Paris, Bristol, Dublin, Manchester, Antwerp, Valencia and Bilbao.
