The İçlek Art Project will contribute CYFEST this year in the ST PETERSBURG / RUSSIA
about CYFEST: One of the largest international media art festivals, CYFEST was founded in St. Petersburg in 2007 by independent artists and curators. The festival promotes the emergence of new forms of art and high technology interactions, developing professional connections between artists, curators, engineers and programmers around the world and exposing wide audiences to the works in the field of robotics, video art, sound art and net art. Over the years, the festival has invited artists from Russia, USA, Germany, Japan, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Finland, Italy, the Philippines and other countries.
CYFEST 2018: The human being always looks for a comfort zone. Changes induce anxiety and a desire to confine oneself to something that is already known, familiar and comfortable.
We suggest that changes in the realm of digital technologies, which have become a part of our life, be treated as if they were changes in the weather. This is something that is beyond our control, but it directly affects our everyday life.
Throughout its history, the CYFEST Festival has focused on studying the dialog between new and traditional visual languages, trying to show technological achievements through an artistic conversion.
