We would like to invite you to participate in a International Competition digital_art_now addressed at artists creating interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplin art works in the field of new media and using methods of Open Source software in artistic practice. The co-organizer of competition is Piksel Festival. It is an annual event for artists and developers working with free and open source software, hardware and art based in Bergen, Norway and main partner of the Digital IA Festival.
This year digital_ia is developed as an exhibition and a media art festival with several evening events. Digital_ia 2015 / RE_MANUFACT is trying to define how much Old is found in the New and where this Old is needed in our daily life and in our way to be productive creating New. As technology and automation changed our everyday life and the world we live in, we will get a glimpse about past, actual and upcoming industrial revolutions and their cultural impact on society and contemporary art.
For the competition we expect works which represent different artistic strategies and different media outputs connected to the exhibition theme: from video, through multi-media installations, interactive installations, performance, network projects (net art), up to multi-media concert projects, live cinema, mapping and activities in urban space, etc.
The competition is mainly addressed at artists interested in using digital media in their work and beside that at any work integrating “old” and “new” media in specific projects in an interesting manner.
