Betwixt: Art & Bytes – Inaugural festival
As our social landscape swiftly becomes more and more digitalised, new mediums of expression emerge entwined in technology. Coding and physical computing have become tools for artists to create art that has an interactive nature to it, art that requires stimulation and participation to be art – in summary, digital, interactive art.
Betwixt Festival attends to this form of art, a form that becomes art in the presence of the human element through interaction, thereby humanising digital technology. It aims to demystify the art form and strengthen the community of digital, interactive art makers through its three-day exhibition, an academic symposium, lectures and masterclasses, performances and screenings.
