Between the Spaces invites the viewer to explore connectivity and art as it pertains to digital versus tactile mediums. Mixing printed portraits with markings painted physically and digitally and then experienced through virtual reality, this project brings those two worlds together. It features 36 printed portraits, 18 of which will be physically embellished, and the other 18 will be virtually painted and viewed using the Artivive app.
The artists welcome viewers to move through the gallery interacting with the different elements of the project, including a polaroid corner for participants to have their picture taken and that Polaroid becomes part of the installation, 3D printed painted orbs on display, an augmented reality orb, a video space for participants to create selfie videos, a collaborative canvas to be raffled off as well as canvas pieces of art.
The virtually-painted portraits can be purchased and viewed again in their homes with the app, expanding the experience of the project beyond gallery walls. It is also the hope of the artists that the participants feel connected and included enough to be a part of the project.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Oklahoma-based artist Jaiye Farrell cultivated his style of painting from abstract patterns that transcend societal and cultural divides and remember the communal roots of humanity. From an infatuation with archeology emerged a creative and ambitious talent: to craft signature designs that inspire self-reflection.
“The pattern I am cultivating is a rhythm of line and shape. I use like a substance that morphs so I can transform surfaces objects and spaces around me.”
Driven by connection, community, and alliteration, Cody Giles is a photographer who always sets out to capture the personality of a subject. Not just another portrait, but rather one that conveys just who that person is without knowing them. He strives to do this in all types of photography, from live music to families, to fashion editorials. Capturing moments in thoughtful and artful ways is always the goal.
