New Media in Public Space
30 oct – 2 nov
The festival consists of an Art Show, Symposium, Live Cinema concerts, Artist Talks and an Expert Meeting.
The theme of ImageRadio 2008 is «Exploring Your Invisible Paradise»: Experimental installations in public space aimed at interaction and participation, making aware and inspiring people to use new media, enhancing their social and cultural well-being.
A number of installations are commissioned new works / artist in residence projects / localised work.
The festival is also an experiment, critical reflection, and preview of how new media in public space impact our cultural, social and physical surroundings. The increase of display devices, data clouds, sensor networks, particularly in urban centers, provides a new medium. Public space becomes a playground in which dynamic and manipulative data influence our perception. Potential applications are shown in experimental installations. Theory, discussion and exchange on these topics are facilitated in the professional program and symposium.
