who is preserving
and promoting methods
of digital production.
Along with Fedir and Yana Boytsovy, Dmytro founded
the NGO Pixelated Realities.
They use 3D scanning
to save decaying buildings
“Within 10 years, with current out-of-date methods, we face the prospects of thousands of historical objects crumbling down”.
also promotes digital methods
among state institutions and artists.
Their digital laboratory teaches others
ways to preserve their cities digitally
but also include their cultural heritage
in modern contexts.
“Artists themselves get a chance to try these methods of production that are being used across the world, accelerate the pace of their own work, to make it more interesting and modern”.
Many of their works
have updated exhibitions
in local museums.
Dmytro believes it is also important
to develop new things.
He and his friend Andriy Utenkov,
create contemporary art installations
with 3D models and augmented reality.

they are first and foremost aiming to bring digital technologies
to the restoration of what risks being lost.
