Virtual Reality Art by Marina Abramovic and Inspired by Hilma af Klint

Acute Art is a company specializing in bringing artists’ vision to the medium of Virtual Reality. Kinda cool by itself. But even cooler that they’ve tapped Marina Abramovic to work with and produced a piece that responds to the work of Hilma af Klint. Abramovic was targeted by Republicans and Russian trolls who sought to link Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton with the occult because of a 6 degrees of separation connection with Abramovic and her occasionally ritualistic art (as  if occultism should be the basis of condemnation). Hilma af Klint is the proto-Abstract painter who claimed inspiration from the spirit world.
