Boris Marinin

Contemporary multidisciplinary artist, curator and creative director.

Multidisciplinary artist and curator Boris Marinin born in 1987 in the city of Moscow, Russia, and immigrated to Israel in 1997. Marinin holds a BFA in Screen Arts and MFA at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. His artistic process is influenced mainly by self-study, the practice of frustration, and psychoanalytic analysis. Artists Judith Sasportas, Joseph Beuys, Matthew Barney, and the musical genre Black Metal, inspired artistic decisions and are an integral part of his developmental process.

"Digital art is finally made itself into a unique object. NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique and distinct cryptocurrency assets. Each NFT is unique, with distinguishing metadata and identification codes. NFTs are certificates of authenticity, using a string of characters to prove ownership and legitimacy.

Making my bubble series I use the technic of Physically based rendering (PBR). A computer graphics approach that seeks to render images in a way that models the flow of light in the real world. This object is made with mathematical rules, just like a mathematical golden ratio of nature. It is as material as a rock or a tree. By making this object into NFT, it gained the singular plural meaning of object of cognitive capitalism. But it lost the magic of transcendence.

My Bubbles are gods and entities, once, and still today, believed to be real and transcendent. They are not only objects that are subjects of perception. Virtual reality states that the objects that surround us are only screens that project their essence. In my Bubble series, the objects are the main subject matter. This stems from the search for meaning. The circular motion of meaning is created by human perception and continues to a sharing motion of the objects around us. The objects exist in their own right and by the association between them, and they are real as long as we believe our perception.”
