The Message

David Luraschi


The Message is a virtual experience in an environment populated by seven artworks. These artworks are a cross pollination between religious artifacts and hip hop arts, collaborations with individuals working in the fields of architecture, dance, engineering, metalsmithing and couture. An interest for Russian orthodox iconography and the holographic resurrection of the rapper Tupac Shakur led me to develop a syncretic study of the mechanics of mystification. The Message gives the reader an introduction to an exhibition that showcases new and old artifacts.
