Digital Art Festival Taipei is set to kick off Nov. 13 at Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, showcasing interactive art programs combining contemporary art forms with the latest production techniques.
Organized by Taipei City Government’s Department of Cultural Affairs, the 10-day event features an eclectic lineup of exhibitions on animated films, interactive art installations, GIFs and video games, as well as competitions, electronic music concerts and avant-garde performances by talented artists from home and abroad.
According to event curator FabLab Dynamic, the development of new technologies enables the public to better understand artistic creation and become a part of the festival, which is themed Digitopia this year. “We think everyone is an artist, and there is every reason to encourage interactions between involved talents and festival-goers via collaborative practices.” [FULL STORY]
