the past three years, the OPPO Renovators project has received over
5,000 entries from young artists around the world, becoming an important
part in countless creative dreams. Among the artists joining the
project, some have gone on to hold digital art exhibitions in
Manchester, leveraging popular culture to teach cultural heritages, or
transformed their designs into New Year’s gift boxes, or used AI
technology to commercialize their designs. Below is a snapshot of the
works produced by some of these talented young people.
How does nature as we see it differ from nature as computers see it?
as humans have made many attempts to imagine nature and biodiversity,
but what is nature to a computer? Using AI, a young creator from the
OPPO Renovators project looked to produce an electronic utopia from the
perspective of a computer. In this virtual world, the computer is the
creator and designer, splicing together the features of different
creatures to bring us a bizarre but beautiful natural landscape.
Can everything be pixelated?
computer games, we often see worlds made entirely of pixels. Pixels are
seen as mechanical and regular, a symbol that seems far removed from
the real world. A young artist from the OPPO Renovators project,
however, believes that understanding pixels from points, lines, surfaces
to higher dimensions is very similar to the pattern of development of
cities. With the continuous enhancement of digital technology, cities,
citizens, and society are transforming rapidly. This change is both
expansive and deep-rooted, from simple to complex. To capture this, the
artist made a video in which pixels rapidly evolve and eventually become
an expansive modern city.
How do our feelings change when space begins to flow?
2019, deep beneath one of the oldest Victorian buildings in England, a
young artist attached virtual images to the building and enabled
visitors to interact with its environment. This immersive art project
named ‘Tracing the Sky’ was created by one of OPPO's partner artists,
Jiayu Liu, who used data to generate a virtual image of the building.
Jiayu hoped to create a way for visitors to observe and interact with
their surrounding environment and consider the empty space not just in
terms of what it has to show but as a place to reflect on our
relationship with nature.
Want to be the next rising star?
year, the OPPO Renovators project is back with the theme “Light”. Young
artists can explore this theme across multiple categories: wearable
devices, digital art, AR/VR art, and more art-tech in Art Tech category,
or by designing their own collectible designer toys in Art Toy
mentioning, this year’s Renovators project, OPPO has once again
increased its support for young artists. In addition to a number of
generous prizes and awards, the artworks selected from OPPO Renovators
2021 will have the opportunity to be displayed at global exhibitions
such as the London Design Festival and Dubai World Expo. Furthermore,
young designers will have the chance to become contracted OPPO
designers, through which there may be commercial opportunities to
further realize their creative ideas.
The story behind: the "light" that illuminates young artists originates from OPPO's pursuit of beauty
as a technology company, has always pursued the coming together of
technology and beauty. This is not only reflected in product design but
also in the brand's philosophy that technology should bring more beauty
to life. The Renovators project is one of OPPO's initiatives to pursue
beauty by acknowledging the power of young creators to bring more beauty
to the world by helping their works achieve higher levels of exposure.
