FUNCTION, a new Digital & Electronic Art Festival Mallorca at the Centre Cultural Casa Planas, will debut on May 24 2019.
This year’s theme is innocence:
Digital art focuses on how reality is modified by the growing influence in our daily lives of new circumstances closely linked to automatization. Ranging from critical perspectives to exploring the possibilities of magic through technology, digital art pushes at the limits of our experience and definition of art itself. Above all, it defines in real time our relationship with an omnipresent technology.
The festival showcases videos, performances, webart, sound art and much more.
COLL.EO, Reasonable, machinima, color, sound, 2018
The video section includes machinima from COLL.EO and Ignacio Bosch's project Travelling without moving, a videogame designed as an auto executable app or as an immersive RV videogame that invites the player/spectator to embark on an eternal journey where the combination between magic and the mythical join his/her exploration desires. During the path, the player/spectator will find different elements and situations that would generate a reflection on matters as nature, borders, loneliness and fear.
