nebvla is a Digital Art Collective born in 2023 based in Milan. The poetics of the collective questions the constructive and self-destructive peculiarities reflecting contemporary western society. The starting point of the research refers to myth, seen as a founding element of cultural evolution and a means of creating a shared conscience through narration. We make those values our own in order to rework them in a current vision, bringing attention back to the very concept of value, which is all too often undermined by processes of commodification, where significance occupies a subordinate role to the image that represents it. The utopian horizon of nebvla is a critical gaze, which is activated with curiosity, constancy and depth to cross the rampant nebulous fog of visual inputs created compulsively by flows of information and images: a stimulus to recognise and consciously reconstruct the filter between reality and its representation that has crumbled over time until disappearing. We dialogue with those archetypes that are too often replaced by vacuous passing images, to bring them back under human eyes, analysing the ways in which some elements are lost over time while others remain, evolving or clinging to themselves. We allow ourselves to be transported in a creative process that experiments, assimilates, interprets and overcomes external inputs and the barriers they bring, as if to stop the moment to rediscover the uniqueness of the present, analysing the past and projecting into the future.
