Picture yourself at the heart of the Al Wasl Dome in Expo City Dubai, surrounded by beautifully crafted Arabic letters and luminous Japanese artworks. 

Such a spectacle awaits visitors at the plaza on October 21 at 7:15 pm.

A First-of-Its-Kind Virtual Reality Show:

Renowned Japanese virtual reality (VR) artist Aimi Sekiguchi is set to deliver a groundbreaking virtual reality performance as part of the Dubai Calligraphy Biennale. 

Her show, scheduled for October 21, will seamlessly blend elements of Japanese history, Arabic calligraphy, and UAE heritage, creating a temporary art piece that will transform Al Wasl Dome for one magical night.

Embracing Technology in Dubai:

Aimi Sekiguchi expressed her excitement before her performance, stating, “I love Dubai for the way it embraces technology and gives artists like me the freedom to explore our creativity.” 

Dubai’s tech-forward environment provides a fertile ground for artists to push the boundaries of their craft.

Multiple Showings and a Culinary Delight:

The artist will mesmerize the audience with three showings starting at 7.15 pm on Saturday evening. 

As an added treat, a one-night-only collaboration between the newly opened Al Wasl Plaza Café and Japanese bakery Yamanote will engage visitors’ senses, allowing them to watch the artist at work while savoring the scents of Japanese delicacies.

Exploring the Intersection of Art and Technology:

Before Aimi’s performance, an insightful panel discussion will occur at the Pearl Terrace at Al Wasl Plaza. 

Leading experts in digital art will share their experiences and observations, shedding light on the dynamic fusion of art and technology.

Breaking Boundaries with Digital Art:

Aimi Sekiguchi highlighted the beauty of digital art in transcending physical limitations. In the digital realm, artists are not confined by canvas size; they have a 360-degree canvas to paint on. 

Furthermore, digital art is an inclusive medium, making it accessible to people of determination, allowing them to unleash their creativity in once-impossible ways. 

Aimi sees this as the most remarkable aspect of digital art—how it breaks down boundaries and empowers everyone to express themselves.
