From 4-5 November France hosted the annual HUAWEI ECO-CONNECT EUROPE 2019 event at the Palais des Congrès in Paris.
This year's conference theme entitled: “ENABLE A DIGITAL CONNECTED FUTURE”, aims at establishing an open, cooperative and shared platform for customers and partners, to explore new opportunities with the aim of creating a smart future.
Technology has changed the world and continues to revolutionize the way in which we live. According to experts, wireless capacity will increase a thousand-fold in the next decade and the Internet will not only connect people but increasingly “things” too. 5G technologies will bring about a true explosion of communications between persons and things, the so-called “Internet of Things” that will connect around 100 billion devices by 2024.
Dalí Universe in collaboration with HUAWEI wishes to relate art and technology by using technological devices. Starting from the middle of December, HUAWEI THEMES users will be able to personalize the look of their mobile phone with icons, fonts, locks screens and wallpapers choosing images of the Dalí Universe sculptures Collection.
The new HUAWEI THEMES project was presented during the annual event by Mr Weiliang Shi, CEO of Huawei France; Ms Valery Yakubovich, Associate Professor of Management, ESSEC Business School; Ms Elise Quevedo Author, Global Key Opinion Leader and Mr Alex Doppia, Managing Director of The Dalí Universe and Dalí Paris, Paris.
During the Huawei conference, Alex Doppia also showed some pictures of the sculptures of the Dalí Universe Collection that have been exhibited all over the world and which continue to inspire and win over a worldwide audience thanks to their presence in the urban spaces and within prestigious galleries and museums.
We are certain that this project would have pleased Salvador Dalí, who often stated: “Every morning when I wake up, I experience an exquisite joy —the joy of being Salvador Dalí— and I ask myself in rapture: What wonderful things is this Salvador Dalí going to accomplish today?”.
Thanks to the collaboration between the Dalí Universe and HUAWEI, the images of the famous icons of the Master of Surrealism will be before the eyes of an increasing number of people from all over the world, with the HUAWEI THEMES project that contributes to making Dalí's wishes come true, that of continuing to be admired and to seamlessly entertain an ever increasing audience.
“I will be a genius and the whole world will admire me” said Dalí. Now we can add: “also through the HUAWEI THEMES project”.
