#ADAF2017 #PostFuture

Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) has successfully completed its 13th edition that took place from 18 to 21 of May at a venue of very interesting architectural perspective, at 23 Mitropoleos Street, by courtesy of “NBG PANGAEA REIC” in support of ADAF.

More than 250 artists from 22 countries submitted their view regarding the theme of the Festival, #PostFuture. For four days, #ADAF2017 invited the audience to imagine the future, offering a unique experience. This year’s edition explored the ways that technological advancements influence art and the everyday life, under the constant question, if the future is already here then what has to follow? In this framework, the Festival presented interactive installations, web art, digital image, video art and animation screenings, presentations of international festivals and audiovisual performances. Moreover, the audience had the chance to engage with the international artistic scene at the Artsits Corner and the rooftop of the Festival, as well as to familiarize with digital culture and its representatives through talks.

This year, as we integrated at the programme “PEPP – Regional Operational Programme ATTICA 2014-2020 – European Regional Development Fund – With the support of Greece and the European Union”, we’ve been given the chance to attract more and diverse visitors due to our free entrance, to expand our audience through multiple acts and to develop our activities during the year. Furthermore, we presented international festivals with exclusive content and guests, such as Japan Media Arts Festival (Japan), MashUp Film Festival (France), ArtFutura (Spain), Imagine Science Films Festival (U.S.A), Videonale E.V. (Germany), Mapping Festival (Switzerland), VideoFormes Digital Arts (France). ADAF 2017 collaborated with the Ministry of Culture and Sports presenting for the year of cultural exchanges between Greece and China, the special event #PostFuture Dialogues, offering to the audience the opportunity to enjoy installations and screenings by Greek and Chinese famous and upcoming artists in public and private places, as well as a tribute to Microwave International New Media Arts Festival. In addition, ADAF presented the 24hour artist projection “Digital Canvas” that was broadcasted by IkonoTV and the rich compilation of video-art short films and animation in collaboration with the international digital platform The PhotoPhore.

Another great collaboration that we established was with GERMANOS (Powered by GERMANOS). The Festival expanded its horizons, introducing new technologies in the field of digital arts. ADAF and GERMANOS joined forces and organized multiple important actions, such as the VR Creations Contest, presenting the first VR gallery with artworks of the audience.

In this edition, the festival has also enriched the kids program, ADAF Kids, offering to the kids and their parents the chance to explore the magic world of digital culture, through educational workshops, technological experiments, animation screenings and interactive installations. Kids learned the secrets of 3D Printing, painted digital graffiti and made a moving flower robot by playing with light sensors.

More than 17.000 visitors attended ADAF 2017 and had the opportunity to get closer to digital culture and get familiar with new artistic practices. The audience luxuriated a special tribute to the unique digital persona of Theo Mass Lexileictous, got transferred to infinity through the interactive installation Infinity Room by Refik Anadol the was supported by the Delegation of European Commission and the European Parliament Office in Greece (Europe4All, #EU4U), flew to magical dreams with the interactive VR installation Immersio by Immersio Group, and watched web art with the unbeatable speeds of COSMOTE VDSL.

ADAF 2017 at Mashup Film Festival

 

In the framework of its parallel actions and international partnerships, ADAF2017 collaborated with Mashup Film Festival and presented a rather interesting project/screening, on Saturday 3 of May, in Paris.

ADAF’s video art curator Eirini Olimpiou, selected “Found Fotage” films from ADAF’s 13 previous editions and together with Mashup Film Festival’s director, Julien Lahmi, they secretly mixed it with Mashup films.

Found Footage and Mashup Cinema both dealt with the notion of memory and were part of the family of “recycling” or “second hand” cinema. But they were quite different in form and opposite in a way : found footage used forgotten materials in order to offer them visibility whereas mashup used mainstream elements already very familiar to the public and messesd around with them.

The found footage included :

Panagiotis Tomaras (GR) Memory Tapes (2010) 11:20min colour sound

Stelios Oikonomidis (GR) Signalize (2015) 04:56min colour sound

Rick Niebe (IT) MANNEQUIN (2016) 09:00min colour sound

Albert Bayona (ES) Darrere la benzinera (2016) 03:19 colour sound

Harald Schleicher (DE) The hypnosia project Cinedreams (2013) 11:39min colour sound

ADAF 2017 at Splice Festival

Flying beyond digital, reaching the #PostFuture

View Splice Programme 2017

In the framework of its parallel actions and international collaborations, ADAF2017 presented, at Splice Festival of London, a screening compilation, the #PostFuture Journey.

The digital culture, as an integral part of our everydayness, is constantly changing in an effort to satisfy the humans “perpetual eagerness” to exceed every technological limit. This continuously shifting form of digital culture shapes a future “beyond digital”, a futuristic convergence of the ‘real’ and ‘digital’ boundaries.

Our planet, while being a place connecting the ever-changing reality of people and redefining with its own subjective way notions like time and space, is our starting point for this year’s journey to the post-future.

Through this path, citizens of the world encounter this new exciting but still rather elusive “post-digital” reality, where the digital merges with the analogue and the physical.

#PostFuture Journey | Flying beyond digital

In the framework of its parallel actions, ADAF 2017 presents the exhibition #PostFuture Journey at the International Airpost of Athens, “Eleftherios Venizelos”.

 

The digital culture, as an integral part of our everydayness, is constantly changing in an effort to satisfy the humans “perpetual eagerness” to exceed every technological limit. This continuously shifting form of digital culture shapes a future “beyond digital”, a futuristic convergence of the ‘real’ and ‘digital’ boundaries.

The Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”, while being a place connecting the ever-changing reality of people-travellers and redefining with its own subjective way notions like time and space, is our starting point for this year’s journey to the post-future.

Through this path, travellers of the world encounter this new exciting but still rather elusive “post-digital” reality, where the digital merges with the analog and the physical.

#ADAF2017 #PostFuture

/REC: Interactive Installation // #PostFuture Mural

Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) within it’s 13th edition, introduces to the Athenian public, from May until June, the interactive installation REC of Elektro Moon group as also the mural #PostFuture of the visual artist Nikos Tsounakas, who was inspired by ADAF’s 2017 theme #PostFuture.

The mural #PostFuture is a realistic incarnation of the digital-physical contradiction. The horse, representation of the physical word. The lens, representation of the digital world. In #PostFuture these two representations create a whole new entity, a situation that derives its existence from the present state but points out the future state of the world.

REC is an interactive installation set in today’s cultural context where surveillance over the society is no exception, where face tracking and face recognition in order to collect powerful data is an integral part of digital tools we use every day. Apparently, today’s society is ready to embrace many forms of surveillance and data collecting believing that those which do not impose limits on the society can bring about more convenience. But unfortunately, we discover that our e-mails are read, we can be watched and listened by built-in cameras and microphones in our smartphones, TVs and computers and collected data are used to build economic power against personal privacy. Whether we like it or not, we engage in a daily interaction with real or virtual methods of gathering data about our lives. REC installation perfectly illustrates this modern system of dependence.

The viewer doesn’t really need to love art to become the focus of an artistic work. Likewise, the monitoring equipment does not necessarily need to be real to create an atmosphere of control. Sometimes a mere impression of its existence will do.

In the process of interacting with the installation the spectators’ approach usually evolves from just playing and having fun to the afterthought and moment when the question appears: is this data of me collected? And if so, what is it used for afterwards?

The installation is designed for city public spaces to enter it spontaneously, experience it and becoming part of it without time and amount of participants limitations.

You can pass by Kolokotroni 61 and enjoy the installation until 12/6.

Nikos Tsounakas
Nikos Tsounakas is an up and coming artist that currently lives and works in Athens, Greece. Through his work, he tries to communicate the modern contradictions we face as creators and humans in general. These contradictions are physical and digital, natural and man-made, virtual and actual, animalistic and human. His inspiration comes from the observation of the human behavioral patterns in modern day society accompanied with the observation of the behavioral patterns of nature. He is creating works that derive from answering or asking vital questions for our fragile human existence.

Elektro Moon Vision (PL/HU)
Elwira Wojtunik and Popesz Csaba Láng are internationally recognised Polish-Hungarian duet of multimedia artists known as Elektro Moon Vision, working at the intersection of creative computing, design and light-art, creating interactive multimedia installations, stage projections design, 3D video mappings and scenography projections for theatre and opera.

In Krakow, where they live, their live visuals could be seen at the Unsound Festival in 2016. Re-Kreacja, an interactive mapping installation, is included in the collection of Contemporary Art Gallery Bunkier Sztuki, Krakow, Poland. The experimental video NZ/X won the 1st prize and was published in the frame of the Chopin Year competition by Warsaw Electronic Festival and the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.

*/ 13th Athens Digital Arts Festival | Call for Entries

The 13th Athens Digital Arts Festival (from 18th to 21st of May 2017) is launching the call for entries for 2017 and invites you to look together with us towards the #PostFuture.

#PostFuture

Can you imagine the future?

In the late 90’s Negroponte stated that “the digital revolution is over”. Almost two decades later and having accepted that the digital culture has been stabilized into our everydayness, we are moving forward to a most abstract creation.

This new futuristic lifestyle is reflected from the coherence of the ‘real – virtual’ boundaries into a replica of the physical world where everything is countable in digits, therefore simplified and transparent. Yet is post digital the real progress?

Exploring this blurry future, we invite artists to ‘transcend’ digital culture and exchange opinions under the theme #PostFuture. The deadline for the submissions is 31.01.2017 .

At the same time, our goal is to involve in this interesting and lively conversation all that share the same curiosity with us about our lives in the #PostFuture.

The interaction with a constantly increasing part of the active residents – and visitors – of the city is a primary desire and direction of this year’s Athens Digital Arts Festival. We are now moving into a new, more open and interactive relationship with our audience.
