The Digital Art Festival (FAD) is a project on the inventive exploration of new technologies in
the field of arts and communication. One of the axes of the project is the exhibition of
installations of performances and diverse presentations, privileging the digital art (produced by
machines, softwares and programming). The training of young creators is another FAD's goal,
with mediation work, workshops of the educational program in the exhibitions, as well as
lectures given by artists, academic market professionals and others parts involved in the fields
of science and technology, either with regional or national names, and international
Since 2007, the Digital Art Festival has spread the themes of Art through New Technologies in
four pillars of action in Belo Horizonte and Rio de Janeiro / Brazil: workshops, lectures,
presentations and art exhibitions. During this period there were around 20 thousand people,
and exchanges with many professionals around the world, publications, researches and
national awards.
The first FAD’s Digital Art Biennial is a great opportunity for all professionals, artists and
thinkers who work with technology. The goal will be to present works and concepts in which
the transformations of digital processes over time, in life, in creativity and in society by means
of art as well as communication can create experiences through hybridizations.

The current configurations of Technological Art have been fused with contemporary life in a
viral process of incessant exchanges between the real and the simulated world. Hybrid works
are created, in which the digital and the analog, the natural and the artificial, the real and the
virtual, cross. Technology has come to be seen as a constitutive factor of human life and with
biotechnology, as life itself. Scientific researches are re-appropriated and transformed into
artistic languages through the use of interactivity, virtuality, hybrid systems and immersion.
In this special edition of FAD, called the Digital Art Biennial, the goal will be to show works and
concepts through which the transformations, over time, of digital processes in life, in
creativity and in society through art and communication, create experiences by means of
immersive hybridizations for the visitors.
