The 13th international festival for computer based art CYNETART is going to provide a collective atmospheric picture for the reflection on digital culture from 26 November until 06 December 2009 at the festival theatre Hellerau. This will be done by a variety of event formats, such as Automatic Clubbing, a presentation of the output of the European Tele-Plateaus project and the first VIPA-Congress.
Another thematic focus of the festival will be the testing and exploration of new telematic media applications resulting from a continuing mediatisation. This subject is the context of the European co-operation project European Tele-Plateaus – Trans-national Sites of Encounter and Co-Production. This project was started by Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau together with partners from Norrköping, Madrid and Prague in 2008. It aims at creating virtual sound-image-spaces for the public to walk-in and inter-act in a sensate-bodily condition. This will be across long distances and within networked virtual environments in real-time. CYNETART 2009 will show the recent output of this project within “ETP_body-spaces09 – Exploration of Nearness & Distance” an experimental performance from 03 until 06 December. This performance will involve four dancers, interacting simultaneously in the partner cities, connected via internet and networked in a virtual sound-image space.
