Ever-growing technology provides the opportunity to obtain, process and transfer information much faster. It is an undeniable fact that this opportunity, which affect every aspects of life, dramatically changes the production forms by transforming the art. The most important result of this change; is the emerging of digital arts (data visualization, kinetic art, 3D Graphics, artificial intelligence etc.). Formation of the work of art with computer techniques, adding light and pixels to the color palette; are opening new doors for the artist in the way of abstraction and conceptualization.
Istanbul Digital Art Festival aims to display the works of artists, who embraces past/future concepts as a unifying force and accept the intersection of art and technology as a production field, through the theme of “searching_connection…”. While it asks what kind of clues do the past, present and future give us about it, examines what ties interactions such as nature, science, means of production and human behavioral form with the art.
