Report of 9th International Festival of Digital Arts & New Media Athens Video Art Festival
An ambitious, difficult project, with the title “Living Athens”, was completed successfully. 9th International Festival of Digital Arts and New Media, Athens Video Art Festival, has come to an end.
For three days (7th, 8th & 9th of June), in five spots of historic center of Athens, technology met art and the city transformed into a prototype mosaic of expression. A celebration of artistic expression through new capacities of technology starring more than 350 artists, who were chosen among 1.500 applies, from 58 countries.
Under the motto “Living Athens” and motivated by their love for art, more than 18.000 citizens visited Festival’s spots and browsed into focal, but also scorned, areas of the Historic Center. The purpose was the contribution to the aesthetic revitalization and the suburban improvement of the city.
Description under video says ‘the world’s first projection mapped pop-up book’. It was uploaded two years ago, so I’m guessing the project itself is no more than 3 years old.
You can learn more about it here. (There is also a list of past and future projections, so keep that in mind especially if you’re from the UK!)
The artists are Davy and Kristin McGuire, check them out on vimeo.
Featured Friday: The Pirate Cinema
This Friday, Beyond the Frame is featuring the work of Nicolas Maigret and Brendan Howell. The Pirate Cinema is a video installation that
shows Peer-to-Peer transfers happening in real time on networks using the BitTorrent protocol. The installation produces an arbitrary cut-up of the files currently being exchanged. User IP addresses and countries are displayed on each cut, depicting the global topology of content consumption and dissemination.
It’s brilliant visual representation that shows what films we love to steal in real time. I have to admit, I expected less Taylor Swift.

Happy Flag Day
Digital TV Dinner
Early example of digital glitch art from 1979 - video embedded below:
Digital TV Dinner is a video art clip from 1979 created by Raul Zaritsky, Jamie Fenton, and Dick Ainsworth using the Bally Astrocade console game to generate unusual patterns.
The Bally Astrocade was unique among cartridge games in that it was designed to allow users to change game cartridges with power-on. When pressing the reset button, it was possible to remove the cartridge from the system and induce various memory dump pattern sequences. DIgital TV DInner is a collection of these curious states of silicon epilepsy set to music composed and generated upon this same platform.
