The Digicult Agency is back!!!
The Digicult Agency was born in the summer 2008 as a Digicult side project. Today it ovelooks the digital art and culture market with a wide spectrum of artists, performers and designers creating audiovisual immersive systems (performances and installations) focused on the relationship among sound, visual and space. The Digicult Agency wants to promote original work by selected contemporary artists, encouraging their activities via this online platforms, art festivals participations, cultural events invitations, art fairs and selected exhibitions.
Digicult Agency supports and encourages new artistic productions and collaborations between artists and experts. Supporting research, innovation and the ongoing distribution of our productions, Digicult Agency aims to make a significant contribution to the development of new ways of making, presenting and experiencing contemporary and digital art.
Working as an agency, Digicult promotes and organizes the work of these artists, presenting their art pieces within some important festivals, galleries, exhibition, events and cultural centers in Europe and worldwide. The cross-artform projects that Digicult promotes, are characterised by powerful new ideas, high production values and technical innovation on the border among Live Media concerts, Live Cinema experiments, Audiovisual Environmental Installations and Screenings. Often these qualities result from the unique nature of Digicult’s collaboration with the artists, developing their projects over extended periods of time.

Kimchi & Chips - Lit Tree
A conversation between tree and people through 3D light patterns using the tree’s leaves as voxels. The tree invites viewers with a choreographed cloud of light that can respond visitors motion. As visitors approach, they can explore the immediate and cryptic nature of this reaction.
Mylcon/En - Dark Star
One single location, crazy special effect and 4 actors for a peculiar travel into deep space and a reflection on the relation between man and thecnologies. Mylicon/en likes to play on the same coordinates: deep space and concrete landscape depicted by “hand made” effects.
His characters seem to represent the perfect union of opposing forces like good and evil, darkness and light. Using only black, red and white graphic elements, jolts of razor sharp editing, combined with a minimalist approach to design Motomichi yields maximum impact. With these elements he creates powerful visual statements about the world we live in.
Otolab - Bleeding
A synaesthetic and synchronic live performance. It is based on the phenomena of retinal persistence and uses sound up to 400 bpm. Bleeding uses two screens, one of which is painted with phosphorescent pigments.
Teatrino Elettrico - Work!
Little machine made of home electric appliance parts, little speakers, cathodic tubes, audio and video signal mixed togheter. Sick and anti-economical circuit light-on a mini-landscape populated of strange characters. Result is a raw and rough ambient of analogic origin.
Squidsoup - Scapes
Tuned software and specifically designed sounds are used to generate a series of abstract landscapes visualised on a bespoke room-sized 3D grid of lights controlled in real time. As the sounds are played through speakers and picked up with microphones.
Telcosystems - Thrift / Semaphore
Complex decisive processes activated by machines, both in live performances and installations, based on the collective behavior of used systems, for a new form of audiovisual production, perhaps for the first time ever in this area it is much closer to the language of films, video or sound.
Lucas Werthein - Boom Shakalaka
A a game and installation allowing visitors to engage with a game using physical interfaces. A machine that has a life of its own, but can be manipulated and altered as people begin to play and exert their actions into the fantasy world
