The Rome Media Art Festival is an event promoted by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale. The aim is to build up a field dedicated to the relationship between art and technology in order to enhance the value of artistic products made through digital means. The event is meant to be a bridge between research centers, schools, universities and companies, getting the younger generations closer to a new way of using and conceiving technology.
Sound acts is an annual get-together, a showcase of creative couplings between music/sound, performance art/gesture and gender/body/activism.
The first instalment of event took place in Athens in April 2015, through both theoretical presentations and discussions, as well as musical (or amusical) performances, interventions and installations. The event’s purpose was twofold: on the one hand it was an opportunity for local underground artists to present their work in such a context for the first time in Athens and on the other to establish connections between greek practitioners/theoreticians and the international community.
Categories for 2016 festival edition include:
New Media Installations, Outdoor New Media Installations and Architectural Mapping, Single Channel Video and Animation, Multimedia Performance, Fulldome, Experimental or Interactive Documentary, Web-Art/Art-Gaming/Mobile Device Apps, Oculus Rift, Robotics, 3D Printing and Interactive Installations for Children.
Within the framework of TRACTOR International Artist in Residency you’ll be exposed to a unique opportunity to explore and expand your artistic ambitions. “Test” your ideas within a larger frame than your own studio. This self directed creative programme offers you the luxury of time, space and freedom to perform new body of work, research innovative ideas or just experiment with different techniques or modes of production. You can use the opportunity to interact with other artists, or use the time as a chance to re-turn to yourself and the nature – you choose.
