This is an IRL NFT event in partnership with CODAME.com, showcasing 25 artists' creations on screens... running the spectrum of 2D, 3D, interactive, immersive, augmented reality (AR) virtual reality (VR) works. There will be live VR painting by LUVRworldwide, and guests are invited to step inside her metaverse in between the performances.

 

Theme: RAWTHENTIC

The mantra of authentic, honest connection & interaction.

As facades fall away, we have an opportunity to let the true colors of our inner flames shine. By building up each others' vulnerable, natural desires we forge sustainable, RAWTHENTIC bonds. We can create deep wells of understanding and possibility with a sensitive unmasking of experiences. Artists were invited to present their purest sense of expression in any medium, and encouraged to submit Augmented Reality Art made possible by Artivive.
