In the framework of Traces of Commerce and following its tenth anniversary, Athens Digital Arts Festival presents the new project “AddNoise”, a creative and cultural meeting point between artists and audience.
Through a programme of talks, workshops and screenings, AddNoise raises questions about the reconfiguration of public space in the light of recent technological developments. The public will have the opportunity to participate in workshops using digital and analogue technologies in order to create participatory creative activities related to the city, the arcade and the neighbourhood. At the same time, there will be access to an analogue and digital library through the Athens Digital Arts Festival archive and through books related to New Media and Digital Arts.
These events will act as a stimulus for a continuous debate with members of the community aiming to explore issues related to public space and familiarise with artistic activities that utilise technological means.
During the assigned time period, Athens Digital Arts will organise creative workshops with digital and analogue technologies (mapping projection, prototypes, sound technologies, etc.), video art, animation and documentary screenings and talks.
