Description:

CYNETART 2009 - 13th International Festival for Computer based Art in Dresden
26 November until 06 December 2009 at the Festival Theatre Hellerau

The 13th international festival for computer based art CYNETART is going to provide a collective atmospheric picture for the reflection on digital culture from 26 November until 06 December 2009 at the festival theatre Hellerau. This will be done by a variety of event formats, such as Automatic Clubbing, a presentation of the output of the European Tele-Plateaus project and the first VIPA-Congress.

One thematic focus of the festival will be the testing and exploration of new telematic media applications resulting from a continuing mediatisation. This subject is the context of the European co-operation project European Tele-Plateaus - Trans-national Sites of Encounter and Co-Production. This project was started by Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau together with partners from Norrköping (BitNet), Madrid (reverso) and Prague (CIANT) in 2008. It aims at creating virtual sound-image-spaces for the public to walk-in and inter-act in a sensate-bodily condition. This will be across long distances and within networked virtual environments in real-time. CYNETART 2009 will show the recent output of this project within “ETP_body-spaces09 - Exploration of Nearness & Distance” an experimental performance from 03 until 06 December. This performance will involve four dancers, interacting simultaneously in the partner cities, connected via internet and networked in a virtual sound-image space. The interactive environment is web-linked and divided into four parts. Each part is bound to explore the relationship between proximity and distance in different ways within net-linked virtual environments.

a.. Part I: body-instruments
b.. Part II: body-visiting of Madrid
c.. Part III: bodies & languages
d.. Part IV: re-body-spaces
