Original event text:
#Cyberspace2017 was proposed by Libat (FR/CZ) and PragueCollege (CZ). It was combining contemporary Arts and technologies with experimental and new electronic artistic forms of expression. The Exhibition was based on a 10 days workshop inviting artists, students and lecturers to work in an Omni-directional research Laboratory. The “Cyberspace Exhibition” aimed to propose different stimulating aesthetic experiences in what the public is performing as a set of disturbing agents who can introduce chaos into sensitive digital creations, involving alternatively emotions, behaviours, critical or alternative thinking, and capacity to act when surrounded by multimedia messages and representations. By using interactive and sensitive principles, the different artworks presented aimed to modify the traditional relation viewer-representation and to open artistic visions to improbable changes initiated by others, when our society claims that changes are impossible. Different types of contemporary media, techniques and languages were explored during the workshop like performance, installation, video and sounds-cape creation, interactive 3D environments and immersion in cyberspace using Oculus rift or HTC Vives Virtual Reality systems, augmenting bodies, instruments and objects by using different types of sensors and motors, MIDI/OSC controllers, Arduino boards, video tracking and motion capture techniques, visual programming and 3D game principles, etc; to develop inter-media prototypes based on dynamic approaches and to finalized interactive installations or performances for the Exhibition.
