Carlos Luna James
Valley Village, California, USA
Carlos Luna James is a multimedia artist using science fiction and fantasy to explore the nuances of perception of virtual and physical space through art and technology. By merging sculpture, video projection, animation, and sound, his unending storytelling engages all our sensors at once. The artist wants us to consciously let go of what we perceive as reality and in that state of trance he opens for us an opportunity to connect to something else–the other possible parallel reality.
Interested in realms of reality and simulation, fascinated by altered states of consciousness such as dreaming, trance, hypnosis, meditation, and the effects of psychedelic drugs, Carlos uses these transcendental experiences as inspiration for his work. In it, he explores cultural diversity and subsequent hybridization as a fertile soil for cultivating positive human emotions.
