New Media Fringe Festival @ FirstWorks.
PIXILERATIONS [v.8] is a new media festival in Providence, Rhode
Island (USA) that investigates the state of new media arts through
installations, performances and film/video screenings. It is part of
the larger FirstWorks Festival (first-works.org), a
multidimensional performing arts festival in Providence each fall.
Pixilerations is produced by FirstWorks in collaboration with the
Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Brown University, and the City
of Providence's Department of Art, Culture + Tourism. Now in its
eighth year, Pixilerations is one of the foremost venues for new media
artwork in New England.
In an era of Facebook/Twitter-inflamed revolutions, biotechnology
ethics wars, and youtube-generated museum exhibitions, this year's
festival seeks to examine the question "Where – and what – is New
Media Art today?" New Media art traditionally held a role at the
intersections of art, science, technology, ansd social realms, yet
artists who do not identify as New Media artists now make free use of
the same tools as video game programmers, robotics engineers, and DJs.
Pixilerations [v.8] seeks work that broadly explores these identity
questions of art/not art, new/old.
Each year, we invite artists, musicians, performers, film/video makers, and new
media practitioners to submit work. Please join us this fall for Pixilerations [v.8] in Providence, Rhode Island during the annual FirstWorks Festival.
