What does digital infinity look like?

Deep dive from an architectural point of view

For the first time ever in history we're on the verge of merging another plane of reality with our own reality. We've had stories, books, paintings, and images creating parallel worlds. Now very soon the smartphone in your pocket could become glasses overlaying a digital realm over everything you see.

Why is this relevant?

Architecture is the act of dividing and organizing physical space. Physical space in itself consisting of virtually nothing. Beside some air particles that make up space the rest of physical space is just emptiness surrounded by actual matter. In this emptiness, and between actual physical matter, we organize society and its physical and metaphysical properties.

It is through the means of architecture we give and define the emptiness with a purpose, namely a place for the consciousness of society to organize itself inside these structures of matter and emptiness. Inside the rhythm of something and nothing.

Virtual space is nothing but a mere two-dimensional plane in this virtually being-nothing physical space. I propose it is time for architects to start organizing this virtual, being nothing but a 2D plane in virtually nothing, space. In which everything, the consciousness, can reside and take place in an almost limitless discrete space. Almost limitless, because this virtual space, according to the laws of physics, can never overextend the vastness of energy in the universe, and can only ever reach until its boundaries.

Which of course opens the door into existential questions. Are we already in a simulation given the trajectory of technology and its conception of this virtual space? Did we lose energy and information in this process? Are we doomed to loose information and energy again?

A new role for architects?

Deeming ourselves the concept of Gods in these newly created virtual spaces, in which every single conscious mind can create a new reality. A reality simulating the physical world and its properties but never reaching the complexity this physical world has. Seemingly expanding the possibilities of creation where everything seems possible but at the same time becoming ever more meaningless by losing the inertia we do have in the physical world.

This is where architects come into play. Trained to organize society they now, together with other professionals, can take on the task of finding a balance of existence in this new reality.

The artistic process - How is this made?

As a painter of the 21th century, Ommery De Zutter replaces the paintbrush for the computer. Capturing the soul of people, emotions and philosophical concepts.

The artworks are formed by the digital exploration of space and materiality. Starting up the conversation between artist and the machine, forming imagery that neither could make or predict on their own. It is through the means of experimentation and pure childlike wonder the artworks start to establish themselves. Leaving behind any answers and intentions one could come up with, instead forming more questions about their own existence.

Production method - What is the end result?

Artworks available for purchase are produced as unique pieces in diasec quality. Diasec is the worlds most established and quality proven face-mounting process. Thanks to this highest form of quality, the artpieces are able to show their depth and the smallest details that hide in the artworks. As a result the produced artpiece sets itself as a contrast and singular gate to its own digital infinite existence. Remeniscing the older art practices when artpieces couldn't be copied, and awaiting a truly functional NFT revelation.
