26 October – 6 November 2005
Cimatics 2005 will focus on ‘context’. Audiovisuals, as prominent expression of this age, are not only influenced by different contexts of production or reception. They are becoming or structuring more and more our world through massive content-production and sublime ways of social integration. They are both using and uncovering the building blocks of the virtual perspective on this world.
Cimatics wants to stimulate experimental explorations on this field. Therefore, the festival will invite different artists to collaborate in some well-defined projects: mobile audiovisuals, broadcasting, mass/high/sub-culture…
Cimatics is an initiative of different Belgian artistic organisations, artist collectives & curators: Les P’tits Belges vzw, Visual Kitchen vzw & Boups Radio.
