Creative Armenia unveils global SelfQuar Experiment
Hundreds of quarantine creations in film, music, and across the arts are featured on selfquarexperiment.com
July 1, 2020 | by Creative Armenia
Creative Armenia launched today selfquarexperiment.com, which showcases powerful visions from artists across the world as they created within — and reflected on — their own self-quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The featured films, music, literature, animation, and other creations were the top submissions to Creative Armenia’s $2,000 Self-Quarantine Challenge, in partnership with Ucom. The Experiment showcases not only the 5 winners of that challenge but also hundreds of other exceptional works.
“The SelfQuar Experiment is an unprecedented laboratory of the human imagination," said Garin Hovannisian, the founding director of Creative Armenia. “It is a testament to creative minds across the world who broke through their isolation to create extraordinary film, music, literature, and art. Looking back upon these works, we will be able to recall the tribulations, tragedies, and triumphs of this moment in time."
The winners of the Self-Quarantine Challenge were Ani Qananyan for her evocation of quarantine routine, Arnaud Khayadjanian for his creative travels on Google Maps, Van Sarkissian for his electronic hallucination, Tigran Nersisyan for his poetic funeral, and Tamara Aydinyan for her madness-in-motion.
You can experience these creations — and many others — by visiting the digital lab at www.selfquarexperiment.com/.
