About Las Palmas Doradas by Karina Abramova
A phygital project, Las Palmas Doradas explores the relationship between humanity, nature, and technology. Abramova’s works combine natural objects and climate science to create stunning digital pieces. Now, Poetry for the Anthropocene, the Las Palmas Doradas project show, is on display at mmad art, London. Margaux Mester, founder of mmad art, co-curated the exhibition.
“We present the work of NFT creators and contemporary artists in a beautiful modern interactive space,” said Mester. “This exhibition is the first of its kind at mmad art and a first of a series of others as we aspire to create a strong community with common values and great societal goals.”
mmad art is bridging the physical and the digital to bring the NFT world to the collector in familiar surroundings, all the while committing to purpose-driven projects. Las Palmas Doradas is a good example of this, as it combines climate debate and environmental action through the development of phygital climate communication. It is also executing regenerative actions in real-life communities.
On Tuesday, July 26, Abramova hosted a private view of the exhibition, which NFT Evening co-founder, Theo Sastre-Garau had the pleasure of attending. There were several talks about tech and ecology, art, activism, ecosomatics and indigenous wisdom.
The speakers included Karina Abramova, Nowadays on Earth Founder Kalpana Arias, 110Perceb Founder Manuel Diaz Cebrian, and Editorial Director at NEAR Protocol, Matt Hussey. Patron Tequila, Calafuria wine and Mexgrocer were also sponsors.
About Poetry for the Anthropocene
Notably, the exhibition takes inspiration from Abramova’s personal experience with natural degradation in the Yucatan peninsula. It is one of the most beautiful scenic spots in the world, but it is being overtaken by rising sea levels, pollution, forest fires and tourism.
“I am attending to the topics of purpose, community, and climate resilience, united by a creative vision,” Abramova said. “I am on a mission to answer the question ‘Can a digital object affect physical change?’ because if we can answer this through the conclusion of regenerative activity in the Yucatan, we can cement purpose as utility for NFTs.”
The exhibition features phygital artworks in golden aesthetics, combing unique natural objects, 3D digital landscapes, and photography. Each piece begins with a “dead” natural object in order to raise awareness about climate change. The object is then made into an objet-d’art and given a climate story. Finally, it is transformed into a digital object for the Web3.
3XR is also providing a Las Palmas Doradas VR gallery experience, minted on Mintbase for the exhibit. Furthermore, 25% of the art sales will support Las Palmas Doradas’ mangrove planting project in the Tulum area. The exhibition will be on display at mmad art till August 28, 2022.
Future plans of Las Palmas Doradas
“Longer term plans for Las Palmas Doradas involve building new community models of fiscal and climate resilience through clever web3 mechanics and climate tech innovation, where every participant gets rewarded,” said Abramova.
Additionally, Abramova is currently working on a partnership with the New Forest Park Authority for a digital installation in the UK. This collaboration will see AR sculptures installed along New Forest trails as well as community planting projects.
