We were honored to receive the proposal from the artist Lucreția Maiorescu to enrich the experience generated by technology with the imprint of human creativity through contemporary sensory visual art.

The works "Bastion," "Snow Labyrinth," "Bega Banks," "Monument," and "Tower of Babel," which are exhibited as invited artist pieces, draw inspiration from city symbols that find their counterparts in the three major arts: Architecture, Sculpture, and Painting.

Through this combination of styles, "Feel the City" explores various ways of enhancing Timișoara's cultural heritage and opens the path to opportunities for expanding the reach of artistic creations to a more diverse audience.
