FONLAD #05_09


Dates:
Sat Nov 14, 2009 00:00 - Thu Nov 12, 2009

Location:
Portugal

The art of the XXI century is headed sharply to a digital form where the support is no longer the object: in the wide world before us through the thousands of computer networks that link us all over the world, the Internet becomes not only as a important mean of artistic disseminating but also a creative one.
It appears as a hidden world to the sight (the digital world requires to be perceived a computer screen), another world (virtual and not real) is difficult to see beyond the bright pixels that separate it from our reality. To know this world, to realize their creative potential, we must interact with it.
Intending to bring this world to the general public, through exposure on the Internet and in physical spaces, the IC0 Cultural Association presents the fifth FONLAD festival, curated by the portuguese artist Jose Vieira.
The Online Festival of Digital Arts is an event focused on the Internet in the format of a publication / web gallery of art projects of photography, digital painting, web art, animation and video. Since its first edition, the festival is complemented by exhibitions of international scope: Madrid (1st edition), Coimbra (2nd edition), Montemor-o-Velho (3rd edition + collection), Madeira’s Biennale - Funchal (4th edition + collection), Belforte del Chienti , Italy (collection) and finally in Guarda (5th edition).
During these 5 years this festival was attended about 170 artists, including some names of international relevance, such as Annie Abrahams, Agricola de Cologne, Caterina Davinio and Jody Zellen.

OPPORTUNITY

THE PIXEL PROJECT


Deadline:
Sat Mar 14, 2009 00:00

Location:
Portugal

The pixel is located beyond the image, beyond its representation, taking as pure abstraction, pure unifying concept of reality - the image - whtich is set on the screen. This is all the more credible the more pixie image has, the greater the definition.
Oposed to photo chemistry, whose definition of the image depends on the number of points and its size, higher points less number on the image, then lower definition. The process in digital image is different, because the pixel size does not change: more pixels more image definition.
Donald Kuspit compare the impressionism of Seurat to digital images; the flick is the same as pixel. In this sense, the digital image can be seen as a huge web of colors linked in some way to shape the image.
With The Pixel Project, the UAVM which to present how artist see images through pixels, images as pixels, pixels as art.
