Dear friends and colleague,

I'm glad inviting you to take part to the exhibition part of 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.
