A term coined by Douglas Hofstadter, Feelium* is the inanimate particle that produces experience, a special ingredient responsible for perceptions common to every living thing. Operating within a contemporary art context, Feelium's mission is to bridge the realms of sensation and comprehension, fostering a holistic experience. Within this ecosystem, tangible and intangible entities form connections that traverse the boundaries of the physical and the virtual. These entities, whether perceived as particles or bodies, establish a network of relationships, ushering sensations, thoughts, and emotions into a shared continuum through the act of observation.
Feelium's space serves as a platform for experimentation, placing emphasis on practices emerging at the crossroads of physical space and virtual storytelling. By nurturing this symbiotic relationship between the tangible and the digital, Feelium cultivates a conceptual dialogue that challenges the traditional discourse of exhibition making.
