Art Musings presents Sublime Machines, a solo exhibition by Raghava KK. In his artwork and his invented media, Raghava figures the notions of transcendence and sublimity for our time and its future. In this latest series of artworks, Sublime Machines, 2018, he imagines scientific reality as a source of the sublime, reinvesting the sphere of science with emotion and human intent. Raghava was inducted into the National Geographic Society in 2013 as an Explorer for pushing the boundaries of scientific exploration through art. Artistic creativity for him is a deeply decentered enterprise shared with the users of the artwork, which is evident in his numerous collaborations with other artists, technologists, corporations, educationists, scientists, academia, etc. His lectures, including 4 TED talks, are known for inspiring his audiences to expand their social and psychologically settled selves using art.
