Interdisciplinary art project ONA TELOS

is intended to create a new type of experience and perception through interaction between nature, living beings and the new reality of digital space.

 

In the Catalan language, ONA means «wave».

TELOS is the philosophical antique term representing the ultimate goal of everything that exists in the Universe.

 

ONA TELOS’ thematic and aesthetic aspirations go towards connecting the art world with entertainment and philosophy, game and interactivity with religious concepts and technology, international politics and art activism with meditation and exploration of the unconscious.

 

The creator of ONA TELOS, Ukrainian artist Tetiana Glavatskix/Hlavatskykh, is currently developing an eclectic system of contemporary art practice within the project. It is based on the concept of situational media perception, which consists in a lively response and modelling of an artistic utterance depending on the fluctuations of the information space around at a specific point in time. Her approach is a kind of visual fusion of digital art, traditional fine art, eclectic religious beliefs, information philosophy and media psychology.
