ADAF 2018 | The Photophore: CALL FOR VIDEO ARTISTS: TECH BREAKFebruary 28, 2018
The PhotoPhore, proud partner of ADAF 2018, opens its call for artists TECH BREAK. We are searching for video-art works, short movies, digital and animation films, to include in our official selection for the 14th Athens Digital Arts Festival – ADAF 2018. The screening will be part of the festival programmed from May 2018 in Athens, Greece.
Deadline for submissions: March 28, 2018
The 14th Athens Digital Arts Festival exploring the unknown future of the upcoming Technological Apocalypse through art, science and technology, under the theme SINGULARITY NOW.
The PhotoPhore’s selection will be focused on the related concept of TECH BREAK.
TECH BREAK: One day there will be a Tech Break. A breaking point with the life and society as we know today. A breaking point with the current technology.
The Tech Break is a singularity in the evolution process of human kind. It’s the point in which something different and unexpected happens and changes the order of things.
Will a superior artificial intelligence, that surpasses the man, be created? Will this intelligence be autonomous and developing without the man? Will we create a new organism that can control the universe?
Or, will the Tech Break be the moment when the Universe rejects the human technology, bringing us back to a new Stone Age?
Will it be a moment of sudden and unmanageable development, or the breaking point with an unsustainable way to be human?
Would we need to take a break after the Tech Break?
Through Art we can suggest a new scenario, beyond the one we live today.
New world, new ways of living, new relationships between men, and between men and the technology.
We ask artists to present us their visions on the Tech Break; to show us the unexpected futures that await us after the Tech Break, and the premonitions about the world that will follow the one we live today: technology development, science evolution, human relationships.
