THREE ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCY OPPORTUNITIES IN WALES, UK OPEN TO ALL ARTISTS
MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES
Cardiff festival of creative technology
28th to 30th October 2005
MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES is Cardiff's inaugural festival of
creative technology - a three-day programme of events being held across the
capital. The festival is being developed between bloc and Chapter. The
residency programme for the festival is supported and managed by Cywaith
Cymru/Artworks Wales), the national organisation for public art in Wales.
The festival residencies are supported through the National Lottery
celebration of Cardiff 2005.
Artists are increasingly engaged with or inspired by digital technology -
exploring consumer and communication technologies such as the worldwide
web, mobile networks, file sharing, and computer gaming. Because digital
technology is a participatory medium with global reach, artists tend to
explore digital technology in the context of public and shared spheres.
Often digital art is situated somewhere between public art - albeit in a
dematerialised form - and street culture where the technology itself is
used as a 'site' for the production and presentation of art works. Although
digital technology is often claimed to go beyond physical limitations,
engagement with technology is always embedded in, or grounded in, real
spaces and places whether this is explored from a user or network perspective.
