About the WAG

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket. Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.

Digital_ia festival


Dates:
Fri Oct 23, 2015 12:00 - Mon Nov 30, 2015

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

ABOUT digital_ia:

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.

About the SHOW

“Aren’t dimensions fun" by Marcin Hanuszkiewicz.

“aren’t dimensions fun” aims at exploring the way in which the human eye perceives dimensions and space. It is mainly, however, a piece about glitch and its capabilities of being a visual metaphor for a wide array of experiences and phenomena. “aren’t dimensions fun” portrays a psychedelic epiphany in which the austerity of the empty space results in a dimension-bending vision.

Dates:
Tue Jul 21, 2015 10:50 - Mon Aug 31, 2015

Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm proud to present “Donna Ingabbiata” (caged woman) by Tomaso Binga. July 22 - August 31 2015, at the Widget Art Gallery http://www.chiarapassa.it/wag Web-App cross-device and platform. Always available the osx-dashboard version at http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html Enjoy the show!

Have a nice summer!
Best regards, Chiara Passa

About the SHOW

Binga asked me to make swinging from the ceiling of the WAG her caged head – icon of deprived liberty, she is fed through the bars by a male hand offering her an almond seed: symbol of the species’ survival. Binga is reusing for the WAG her caged head - that was the core in the performance she made in 1974 - to question the woman's freedom today in relation to new media. Tomaso Binga is a poet, among the best-known Italian exponent of sound poetry and performance art.
