Artists push boundaries, seek new experiences at the International Festival For The Post Digital Creation Culture
Monday 21 June 2010
A mishmash of culture, art and digital creation will be performed, showcased, dissected and recreated during the International Festival For The Post Digital Creation Culture (OFFF).
For its 10th anniversary the OFFF festival is once again departing from its hometown of Barcelona and relocating to Paris.
The festival - which has previously ventured to venues like New York, Lisbon and Oeiras - will focus on the theme of "Nostalgia For A Past Future" in 2010. Artists, developers and those hungry to consume digital media crafted by avant-garde conceptualists will look back to the past to move forward with their creative ideas.
The festival's eventful three-day calendar includes a design conference, a multimedia trade fair, a digital animation program, performances, talks and workshops for artists. Above all it aims to celebrate all kinds of visual culture.
Visitors to the now-sold-out event will indulge in a healthy feast of creativity put together by digital artists, web, print and interactive designers, motion graphics studios, and "adventurous" musicians.
"OFFF is spreading the work of a generation of creators that are breaking all kind of limits," say the event's organizers. "Those separating the commercial arena from the worlds of art and design; music from illustration, or ink and chalk from pixels. Artists that have grown with the web and receive inspiration from digital tools, even when their canvas is not the screen."
OFFF International Festival for the Post Digital Creation Culture will be held from June 24 to 26 at La Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris, France.
