CYNETART festival


Dates:
Thu Nov 13, 2014 00:00 - Wed Nov 19, 2014

Location:
Dresden, Germany

CY NET ART testifies to the life of intertwined species and shows options of connectivity with specifically designed perception architectures. The modelation of coexistence reflects our understanding of ourselves. Our demand for contact among each other and to other species, so it be purely energetic or mediated, is ongoing.

In the sense of cybernetics comprehension relationships between disciplines and types are drawn, networked together, set into relation to each other. The technical interfaces form the interfaces of the transformation of bodies (ant colonies, human, organic crops, etc.) into data, thus in possible information for process control and the processing of technical procedures. Due to their informal qualities feedback loops offer connections and thus confirm the assumption that all is connected to everything, all mutually conditionally.

From 13 to 19 November, CYNETART festival invites to various atmo-spheres, in which we will meet under the roof of the Festspielhaus Hellerau in Dresden.

The "roomies" of the spaces and spheres will be international media artists, for instance the winners of this year's CYNETART competition or invited in relation to collaborations with world renowned institutions.

As a central point in the Grand Hall of the Festspielhaus there will be to experience a fulldome hemisphere: an extra built large spherical segment as a temporary zone of art. Artists play encircling 360° hemisphere filling projections and sound and thus combine the latest technological possibilities with artistic practice. The self-built "Planetarium" is an area, in which the quest will be: plunge and immerse.

ON CYNETART FESTIVAL

CYNETART is an international festival for interdisciplinary art based on new technologies and media that takes place annually in November in Dresden . It is the focal point of Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau's activities and an internationally esteemed platform for digital culture. Every year CYNETART provides a vast, but curated overview of current developments in technology-based art. The international festival is an experimental space or laboratory where artists can experiment and play with future art, music and ideas. Projects that engage the festival audience and artists in a participatory experiment in creating a new kinds artworks, new forms of participation, different understanding on art and technologies as well as innovative ways of presenting inspirational creativity.

CYNETART has been showing new trends of cultural developments in the media arts since 1997. The consequences of the prevailing progress of civilisation and the introduction of new information technologies in all fields of social life lead to the disembodiment of perception triggering the examination of a new sensitivity for physical experience and for the perception of one’s own body. The international festival focuses on this change in perception of the body by new information technologies. In this connection the performance of the new technology is less important, it is rather focused on its cultural potential for mediation. This applies e.g. to linkages between existential questions of humankind and how they are perceived. It also applies to the sensual approach to scientific methods of research and the interconnections between the arts.

The festival alternates every two years from a project - festival to award-festival. Project editions focus on projects developed by the TMA Hellerau itself, its associated artists, partners and networks. The award-edition is initiated by an open call, one of the most endowed calls for media art in Europe.
