In December 2023, I authored a series of Patreon articles offering insights into our latest VRAL machinima exhibition. Now in its fourth season, VRAL showcases artists exploring the intersection of cinema, streaming, games, and video art. Through interviews and essays, our Patreon community gains access to the creative process underlying exceptional video art projects. We peel back the curtain on the ideas and impacts energizing these works. Coinciding with our latest show - VRAL #80 featuring Babak Ahteshamipours Hey Plastic God please don’t save the Robotic King, Let him drown in Acidic Anesthetic - I penned several Patreon articles examining his practice.
These pieces provide an in-depth look at his aesthetic influences, conceptual approach, and artistic evolution. The goal is to articulate the essence of Babak’s practice for an engaged audience looking beyond a single video work. Please stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes insights exclusive to VRAL Patreon supporters seeking a vivid glimpse into the bleeding edge of creative digital media.
