"The screening project is focused on digital and sensitive scapes and showing a numerical flow that break the syntetic audiovisual aesthetic down till a sort of sensitive experience throughtout the body of the artists.
Starting from the most interesting approaches to digital audiovisual artwork made by innovative artists in videoart scenario, the audiences can investigate the latest syntetic aesthetic form of numerical flux realized by autogenerative software and enjoy hypothetical digital scapes.(Hwayong Jung, Lino Strangis)
The syntetic and evocative experience slowly descends into sensitive paths that redefine the concept of metaphysical and real space through "edited" bodies (Rita casdia, Salvatore Insana). A layered performance based on "space - time" shows how a corporeal frame can be traslated into philosophical and phisical paths (Riccardo Muroni).
The perception of the real is still far from the sensitive experience,even though the digital effects contamination is trying to explore other kind of subliminal spaces (Eleonora Manca).
Ispiring to the Plato's cave an astonished body tries to investigate the primordial visual approach reflecting on the contemporary urban spaces (Yuri Pirondi + Ines von Bonhorst). The body now is a vehicle to re-map various sensitive experience or easily the place of beauty appearance (Chiara Mazzocchi).
The perception journey is one more time taking off for ideal levels. Mithological places are mixed with real places causing misunderstandig between real and expectations (Natalia Saurin) or catastrophic events are translated in a fake world, trying to have a sort of control on them (Lucia Veronesi).
The conflict between real and ideal world bring the audience to the selection's end.
Sometimes happens that body and mind are too weak to bear the friction of expectations so is time to return to the ideal state of mind (Mauro Folci)" Alessandra Arnò
