Inspired by the idea of aṣẹ, the West African concept relating to our power to produce change, Aṣẹ: Afro Frequencies celebrates the historical, social, and cultural aspects of the Black experience through the perspective of artists Vince Fraser and Ursula Rucker.
Employing unique applications of audio-visual, interactive technologies and boundary-pushing techniques to broadcast the frequencies of Fraser’s core concepts out into the world, Aṣẹ: Afro Frequencies considers historical frameworks reimagined, brought to life in a new digital performance context.
The immersive multi-sensory show is the latest in the ARTECHOUSE series of collaborations with some of the leading digital and performance artists.
“Vision is the art of seeing what is impossible to others.”
Bridging the gap between fantasy and reality, Afro-surrealist Vince Fraser’s mission is to inspire and empower positive, powerful imagery of the African diaspora.
Fraser regards himself as a new breed of artist in the digital age - combining elements of film and motion with his keen eye for detail and playful visual experimentation.
Over twenty years as a digital illustrator, Fraser has collaborated with a variety of institutions including Nike, Toyota, MTV, and more.
Aṣẹ: Afro Frequencies is a continuation of ARTECHOUSE’s collaboration with Fraser following the XR app experience “We Rise Above” launched in August 2020.
In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the anniversary of the March on Washington, Fraser’s art was brought to life in extended reality so that anyone, anywhere could activate and engage with his art and activism.
