PATCHlab | Digital Art Festival

PATCHlab is an international event dedicated to contemporary (post)digital art forms. During the event world of science and art meets to focus on new trends and opportunities in digital art created with new means of communication. New technologies, open-source platforms, devices and tools, which are developed and processed by the users, where ‘digitalism’ often co-inherence with ‘analogism’.

PATCHlab is an exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery Bunkier Sztuki and Forum Przestrzenie presenting selected interactive installations and audiovisual works created by Polish and foreign artists from fields such as generative art, interactive art, Do-It-Yourself, net-art, video art, sound art, experimental film forms, projektionism, mapping and other often overstepping known disciplines.

PATCHlab GENERATOR is a new special section – international conference entitled “Between Creation and Technology” focused on the designing process in the times of post-digital evolution. In cooperation with Architecture Interior Design of Krakow Fine Art Academy.

PATCHlab is an opened event and invites everyone to participate in the workshops presenting multimedia tools in a broad sense, emerging outside the main trends and as an important element in the hands of contemporary artists. During the workshops, known Polish and foreign artists and lecturers are going to introduce to the participants the possibilities offered by new technologies and show how those can be used in practice.

PATCHlab is also a review of selected international AV performances during a special AV Night in Forum Przestrzenie with an ambitious electronic music with live visuals.

PATCHlab is a member of the international network AV NODE gathering events dedicated to contemporary audiovisual art.

Destacados de vjspain:
Bego Santiago [E/DE]

Visual artist creating installation, VideoArt, LiveCinema, writing books, photos, art direction and some interactive stuff. His work study the feedback between reality and representation. Understanding the “real” as individual and collective construction. He is interested in the binding sites between binomials as: real – fake, presence – absence, original and copy. Looking for those interstice that exist between them. Understanding interstice as a small space between two bodies. A meeting point between opposites. A moment where the terms are confused, and for a time both become brittle, light, weightless.

LPM will actively participate to the program with two activities on October 10th.
