15: Paradigm Shift

January 8th, 2011

The slashTHREE collective selected Paradigm Shift as the theme for its fifteenth exhibition to complement the massive changes it underwent along with the release, which began with a new version of its website. Version four of slashTHREE.com was not only about creating an incredible new website, but also about refining the functionality of the collective and the way it carries itself in the online art community.

The collective was proud to release Paradigm Shift alongside its new website, since the exhibition was the largest one slashTHREE had ever released in terms of both quality and quantity. The artists expressed paradigm shifts in many conventional and unconventional ways, while managing to maintain a high level of visual appeal.

For this monumental release, the collective unanimously chose to highlight the astounding efforts of the artistic prodigy from Luxembourg, Roy Bourkel. Roy submitted an unprecedented eight illustrations, as well as two collaborations; each one retained an incredible level of quality and relevance to the theme, despite their quantity and the fact that he was forced to paint a third of his submissions with an optical mouse. Roy’s impressive dedication to the collective earned him the title of featured artist for this release, as well as a position among slashTHREE’s senior members.
