Dear friends and colleague,
I'm glad inviting you to take part to the exhibition Digital_ia festival during Oct. 23, 24, 25. All exhibitions will be available for visitors until November 30th 2015.
I'm going to show "Talking in Strings" a generative and interactive video installation inspired by the 'Rotor', a famous Luna Park rotating carousel http://www.chiarapassa.it/talkinginstring.html
"Talking in strings" develops into a cylindrical space, all around the audience that create the installation itself, just sending in real time some text via Twitter.
Also the not present public on site can participate by sending texts from their remote Internet locations. TWITTER account to post: https://twitter.com/Digitalia_2015
Waiting for your live contribution!
The sentences run a recording system based on feed technology and are immediately displayed – The texts speedily rotate around the space changing direction, color, font, and some of them ramble in absence of gravity - The generated phrases wrapping all around the disoriented people watching at the texts becoming 'strings', no longer readable. These ‘strings’ slowly disappear as light bundles or like colored trails left by comets, or as if we are inside of Newton’s disk...
Best regards, Chiara Passa
digital_ia is one of the few events in Poland, which tackles the issue of new media art. The festival provides a platform for presenting the latest developments on the borderline of science and art. Artists invited to come to digital_ia are the most provocative creators of contemporary cyber culture: visual and digital artists, scientists, media experts, engineers, visionaries of artificial intelligence.
Every year the event has its motto which becomes the main theme of a given edition of the festival. In recent years main themes included: techno_body (2014), bio_contact (2013), more_inter_active! (2012).
This year's exhibition titles re_manufact: PROGRAMME: http://www.digitalia.art.pl/en/76/programme
The exhibition refers to the past, present and future of technological solutions and their connections. It also describes the direct relations influencing contemporary art as well as - in a broader aspect - the cultural life of societies. The processing of established entities creates new values and predictions, different perspectives on mundane existence. It tells the story of the fall of the Old and the rise of the New.
The curators of this year festival is a duo from Berlin: Felix Hardmood Beck (www.felix-beck.de) and Regina Tetens (www.regina-tetens.de), both working in the field of arts and design for many years. They are both strongly connected with ART+COM Studios (www.artcom.de) a Berlin based studio that designs and develops new media installations and spaces.
