CONTEST THEMES
THEME 1 CONNECTIVITY
We live in an era of hyper-connectivity of the whole Earth population. Man always found the technology to transmit and share information in an updated way - often faster, more convenient, bigger than the previous ones. Books, sound recording, films, radio, internet, social networks. We invite artists to reflect upon the topic of connection between humans, information and space, use augmented reality as a tool to show the invisible layer around.
THEME 2
TRANSHUMANISM
Each time with the emergence of a new mass method of displaying/transmitting information, there isn’t a big chance to form a new formula of laws and ethical norms, in the upcoming era, this is the norm for the connection between technology and man. The emergence of forms of the metaverse and new access technologies in the form of AR tools herald the emergence of a new media, which can and should update rules connecting all participants in the system: users, platform giants and the state. Artists who choose this direction of the competition are invited to express their vision of a balanced connection between man and technology.
THEME 3 TERRAFORMING
Ground terraforming in the Anthropocene period leads to the need of increasing the production and consumption processes transparency. The placement architecture of digital works like any action is associated with the organizing inorganic, associated with the material, the carbon footprint and the dense relationship of man and the only organic habitable environment - the Earth. We invite artists to reflect upon the topic of connection between humans, information and space, use augmented reality as a tool to show the invisible layer around.
