NEW YORK ELECTRONIC ART FESTIVAL 2015:

NYEAF aims to provide a discursive public context for the appreciation of cutting-edge electronic artwork, a showcase of exciting interdisciplinary work and technological virtuosity. Attendees get an overview of how technology is being used in various artistic disciplines, and will have the opportunity to take part in a discussion about how these  technologies will continue to shape contemporary art practice.

LOCATIONS:

Harvestworks
The American Museum of the Moving Image
Governor’s Island
Alwan Center for the Arts

Made in NY Media Center by IFP

Two years have passed since the last New York Electronic Arts Festival, and we find ourselves in a world that is at once familiar and foreign. As we embrace the ethos of the 21st century, we see in technology that which is ubiquitous, indispensable, fun, terrifying, perplexing, astounding, frustrating and mysterious. Its rapid progress inspires, in each generation, a renewed desire to understand, use and develop technology in all its forms.

NYEAF 2015 was programmed with this in mind. Technology can play a role that is both daunting and exhilarating, and art is the most vital tool we have for realizing the potential of our technologies. We have organized this year’s festival around the theme of Plausible Worlds, a challenge to artists to define his/her/their relationship to art and technology and, through this, explore the limits of human agency and imagination.

Take a pair of virtual reality goggles for a spin and see what creates musical legends for an evening. Make music with apples and view another reality with nothing but cardboard and a phone.
