Axis-Z Media Arts (AZMA) is a Calgary-based artistic collective interested in creating genre-blurring digital art experiences that step outside the confines of the rectangular screen and into the real world. Our work combines elements of projection mapping, interactive installation, animation, and sound with a focus on artistic detail, technical execution and audience inclusion.
We bring together media artists, musicians, designers, and technical specialists from our home countries of Canada and Colombia to work on engaging projects that are fun to create and even more fun to experience. This type of cross-disciplinary collaboration allows us to constantly question our views and contributes to new discoveries and boundary-pushing ideas.
We understand that the world is shifting to a digital era where the lines between the real and virtual are hard to distinguish. Our aim is to engage this rapidly changing ecosystem with a sense of curiosity and wonder while constantly questioning the consequences it has on our lives.
Axis-Z?In a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system, the Z-axis can be seen as the axis that gives an object depth (or what makes it 3D!)
Large-scale projection mapping is energy intensive has an impact on the environment. For this reason every project we engage with is paired with a donation to Cool Earth, a non-profit organization that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and its impact on climate change.
