Art and Algorithms Festival Explodes on the Space Coast
Titusville, Florida -- NOW through October 13, 2013 Titusville is a Digital Downtown for Art & Algorithms—an arts festival featuring first-run films from 30 countries and holographic and lenticular imagery from the UK, select Florida digital artists, hands-on digital fun and large-scale 3-D digital projection on the side of a 2-story building.
The Holographic and Lenticular Exhibit, in Digital Gallery 300, is a collection not available anywhere else in the United States. Coming here directly from the UK, this exhibit, called “Dystopia”, is accompanied by Martin Richardson, an innovator in art holography, who worked with rock star David Bowie on a most significant piece which is featured in the exhibition. The International Film Festival (a festival within a festival) is a driving force, with different short films screened each day, and along with five Digital Galleries (9:30-5p weekdays, Noon- 10p Friday and Saturday, Noon to 5p on Sunday), provides festival fun during the week. Clifton Stewart curated the film festival like an art exhibition, sourcing the work, inviting film makers to participate and programming a wide and varied week of international short films especially selected for ART & ALGORITHMS.
On Friday and Saturday this week the festival goes into its final weekend. The festival brings together contemporaries in international digital arts from U.S. and Europe (first U.S. showings) within an interactive street party atmosphere.
Art & Algorithms runs through Sunday, October 13.
