Dual Opening Exhibition

The eighth edition of Digitalife, a section of the Romaeuropa Festival devoted to new technologies and digital art, stimulates a reflection on the fragility of real representations, deceptive as the virtual illusions that are capable of deforming it. Within the spaces of the Exhibition Palace, the spectator interacts with complex audio-visual architectures, immerses himself, is surrounded by vortexes of light and sound. The tools with which our selected installations together with Richard Castelli have been created offer artists the opportunity to broaden their expressive horizons and to capture and reproduce the changes that are taking place in the environment in which we live. A world based on images where new technologies are no longer just means of knowledge and interaction, but help to redraw our identity, or rather our multiple identities, to redefine the concept of time and the boundaries of our potentialities. The centrality of the images and the importance of visual perception focuses on the work of two important cultural institutions: the Giuliani Foundation, linked to the Biennale of the Motion Picture of the Center d'Art Contemporain in Geneva, and the Nomas Foundation, which with KizArt it manages to bring even the smallest to contemporary video art.

Art and Science. Deprived of its material reality and transformed into bits, or rebuilt to be worn as an armor that can overcome the limits and imperfections of skin, bones, muscles, the human body is a hybrid. Fragmented in numbers or reshaped in silicon, it coexists and is contaminated by technology, which is becoming more and more insinuated in our evolutionary process. Science determines these changes, art anticipates them. On the closing day of the Festival, Romaeuropa communicates these two forms of knowledge, free in their expression and internationally by vocation, to imagine our future.
