Dates estimated. Translated via Google Translate

Since its first edition in 2012, the SP_Urban Digital Festival aims to expand the concept of art to establish digital technology channels as integral parts of the city; merging architecture, art and media. The festival is formed as a living organism through the São Paulo urban setting in which artists propose reflections intrinsic to the metropolis and its inhabitants, with new interactive technologies.

The exhibition invites the viewers to experience the blend of electronic art with contemporary art. To immerse in the withdrawal of the lanes of design, game, animation and art categories. In addition, in this immersion, to check out artistic productions that are tricking some aesthetic boundaries. The image distortion. The color and tone saturation. The fusion of things. The combination of real space with virtual space. The outlining and blurring of vision. The synchrony of image and sound. The combination of old and new. The exploration of mathematical formulas. The extrapolation of media limits. The membrane that builds on itself. The disturbance of software order. The integration of exterior and interior.

It is, above all, an invitation to unlock the door of the senses. To enjoy. To perceive and discover the nuances that exist between one thing and another. However, not to recognize them as a geometric line that reinforces the limits that are barriers, but to recognize the intimacy of the in between the potential of transformation. The interaction and the contemplation, the grope and the hearing which allow to amplify our mind because it is in this process of groping that the imagination experiments the sensation of going beyond its limit.
