It aims at bringing together experimental projects of contemporary artists and at promoting free expression, exchange of ideas, and creative interaction while exhibiting new media and new technologies application in arts.
Through a variety of creative forms, it presents alternative ways of “viewing” urban landscape and of perceiving art, and new codes of interaction between art and contemporary societies.
CALL FOR ENTRIES - OPEN UNTIL MARCH 15!
AVAF extends an open invitation to artists who are interested in developing their ideas by experimenting on the platform of new technologies, under no thematic restrictions, in 7 categories:
By the use of recording and editing devices and computer code the artist creates a composition of moving pictures and sound
Moving drawn images. The illusion of movement: the rapid succession of slightly differing drawn images which the mind unifies into a cohesive motion
Appropriation of space incites the viewer’s sensory activation and, by incorporating creatively the surrounding space elements that interact dialectically with the artistic elements, offers him/her a full-fledged space-time experience
Still images processed by means of computer code
A characteristically alternative evolution of digital arts: using as a platform its “ancestors” and also the Internet, gives the viewers the possibility to interact with the work of art, thus getting around the restrictions of traditional museum and art gallery environments
Single reproduction action that is accomplished through appropriation of the body
Through artistic experimentation, sound has evolved into an essential tool of free expression; from lengthy compositions to the briefest of sample sounds, from natural sounds to the sounds of improvised musical instruments, anything can constitute a form of communication
