An internet art collective focused on creating digital and in-person experiences that examine digital activism, hip hop culture, race, gender and class, FELT Zine was founded a decade ago to give voice to art that wouldn’t likely be embraced by traditional galleries or museums.
The debut exhibition Gardens of FELT Zine Delights is a simulated world, video series, and interactive experience inspired by classic icons from Hieronymus Bosch’s famed triptych, The Garden of Earthly Delights (1490 - 1510). Originally conceived as a series of 3D-rendered sculptures and animations to be released as a collection of NFTs, Gardens of FELT Zine Delights has evolved into a fully developed interactive world built using a video game engine.
