Modigliani's life and art were both marked by tragedy and controversy. He struggled with addiction and poverty throughout his life, and his unconventional and provocative style of art often drew criticism from conservative critics. Despite this, he is now considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, known for his unique style that blended elements of traditional art with avant-garde movements like cubism and fauvism. His portraits, often featuring elongated faces and bodies, are particularly famous and continue to captivate audiences today.
In 1919, Amedeo Modigliani returned to Paris from the south of France, where he had sought refuge during the First World War. With his health improving and the war over, Modigliani was ready to resume his life and work in the bustling artistic community of Montparnasse. Thanks to his art dealer Léopold Zborowski, Modigliani was able to secure a studio and living space on the rue de la Grand Chaumière for himself and his partner, Jeanne Hébuterne. The studio was modest, but it was enough for Modigliani to create his final works and live out the last months of his life in relative peace and happiness.
The studio where Modigliani worked and lived in his final months still exists today, though it has undergone significant changes in appearance over the past century.
In 2017-2018 visitors to the Modigliani exhibition at Tate Modern were able to immerse themselves in a recreation of Modigliani's final studio, known as The Ochre Atelier. This virtual reality experience was not created lightly, but rather through a five-month process of rigorous research and collaboration between multiple teams at Tate, as well as art historians and technical experts from institutions around the world. Using first-hand accounts and historical research, each object in the virtual studio was carefully modeled and validated for accuracy, from the cans of sardines to the way the windows opened to let in the light.
But the experience didn't just recreate the physical environment of Modigliani's studio. Through technical analysis and imaging of Modigliani's own artworks, including Self-Portrait 1919 and Jeanne Hébuterne 1919, the virtual reality experience was able to accurately portray not only the physical appearance of the paintings but also the materials and techniques that Modigliani may have used to create them.
The result of this painstaking effort was a truly immersive and compelling experience that allowed visitors to step back in time and witness the creative environment of one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. The Modigliani VR: The Ochre Atelier was a testament to the power of technology and research to bring history and art to life, and a tribute to the enduring legacy of Amedeo Modigliani.

Data Art: A New Frontier in Artistic ExpressionIn the age of big data and digital technology, data art is emerging as a new frontier in artistic expression. This exciting new genre of art is pushing the boundaries of what we consider to be art, and challenging us to think more deeply about the role of data in our lives.
At its core, data art is about making sense of the vast amounts of information that surround us. By collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data, artists are able to create works that are both aesthetically pleasing and intellectually stimulating. From interactive installations to digital prints, data art is taking many different forms and pushing the limits of what we think of as traditional art forms.
One of the most exciting aspects of data art is its interdisciplinary nature. It brings together elements of art, science, and technology to create works that are both innovative and thought-provoking. By working at the intersection of these different disciplines, data artists are able to explore complex issues such as identity, privacy, politics, and the environment in new and exciting ways.
Data art is also challenging us to rethink the way we interact with data. In our increasingly data-driven world, we are constantly bombarded with information, and it can be difficult to make sense of it all. By creating works that visualize data in new and interesting ways, data artists are helping us to see patterns and connections that we might not otherwise notice
At the same time, data art is raising important questions about the ethics of data collection and use. As we generate more and more data about ourselves and the world around us, it's important to consider the implications of this data and how it might be used in ways that we don't anticipate. Data art can help us to explore these issues in a way that is both engaging and thought-provoking.

“My work is a conversation between the digital and the physical worlds. From my hands to software to my mind, and then back to my hands; a three-way dialogue starts to unfold whilst always putting power back into my hands as an artist. My finished works are a balanced expression of this relationship. Their complex simplicity serves as a break of consciousness to the viewer. A stop and a paushe…”
“Throughout this dialogue, my mind is imagining our future as beings, both our spiritual and Avatar selves. I believe sculpture is a physicality that grounds us between these two worlds. Sculpture commands space. It forces the air (real or immersive) to move and flow around it..”
