Ceramic

When our ancestors learned to use fire, they combined the earth with it and made different shapes of utensils that suited their lives. Later, these utensils were called “pottery”. With the changes in politics, economy and culture in different eras, artistic styles of ceramics in different regions began to change.

Photography

Everyone knows how to take a picture! What’s more popular and universal? Universal in diversity, yes. But the universality we’re looking for is at another level. It’s no longer a question of capturing the “scoop” or originality at all costs! It is a question of seizing the moment that the eye perceives when a sublime and almost invisible movement happens! A “magical” moment that a person will “recognize” as a universal value, regardless of his or her age, environment and knowledge. Come and show the world the magical moments you’ve captured and immortalized.

Synaesthetic’ art

Synaesthesia consists of combining several sensory sources.

The synaesthetic art we wish to develop in the Olymp’Arts will consist in juxtaposing and harmonizing sounds, shapes and colors.

For this purpose, the Olymp’Arts software developers will create an original and unpublished application that will be offered to all candidates who wish to participate in this creative innovation.

The application will initially allow each candidate to customize according to their affinities. Then, the progressive capacity and character of this program will give each candidate the opportunity to let their imagination and creativity produce an extremely original artistic work whose effects will not be the product of a series of arbitrary algorithms. The final result will be unique and specific to the subjective affinities of the artist.

The time required for the development of this application will take several months. A prototype will be tested by our registered members, and especially by all those who have registered in this discipline.

Indeed, if this new artistic discipline inspires you, whether you are a musician, painter, cartoonist, animated film director or from any other artistic branch, you have the opportunity to register today by choosing it.

All the necessary instructions (rules, deadlines, validation, technical standards etc.) as well as the characteristics concerning the downloading and the use of this original and unpublished “instrument” will be indicated in this section later, when the application is ready.

Be curious and patient, more information will be communicated to you regularly.
