Conflux Festival

Conflux Festival

O festival Conflux de arte e tecnologia explora novas dimensões da psicogeografia em NY, “for creative exploration of urban public space”. As submissões de propostas podem ser feitas aqui: Conflux Festival | Submissions

Interesse em processos psicogeográficos tem voltado com o surgimento de projetos em mídias locativas, tomando a deriva e a flânerie como formas de apropriação do espaço urbano, tendo a cidade como “espaço de jogo”.

Vejam a chamada abaixo:

“Participants in Conflux share an interest in psychogeography. Projects range from interpretations of the classical approach developed by the Situationists to emerging artistic, conceptual, and technology-based practices.

At Conflux, participants, along with attendees and the public, put these investigations into action on the city streets. The city becomes a playground, a laboratory and a space for the development of new networks and communities.

Here are examples of events we feature:

* exploratory drifts/dérives on foot or by bike, subway, bus or other transport
* walks with experimental mapping or navigation techniques
* social/environmental/urban research and fieldwork
* workshops and classes
* temporary outdoor installations/interventions
* interactive performance projects
* street games
* mobile-tech/locative media projects
* micro-radio, podcasting, vlogging and other broadcast proposals
* alternative use/re-use of public space
* projects proposing alternative/experimental/DIY cultures, economies, communities, and artistic initiatives
* lectures, multimedia presentations and panel discussions
* short film/video works
* live audio/video projects and musical performances for night events
