The Made in NY Media Center by IFP is proud to once again partner with Cyfest for our December 2017 exhibition.
Cloudy with a Chance of Pixels is a collaborative work made specifically for the 27-screen video wall by Blake Marques Carrington's Interactive Studio I class at Pratt Institute's Department of Digital Arts. Taking inspiration from the festival theme of Digital Cloudiness, a team of 9 digital arts students explore ideas around pixelated nature, universal simulation, & the data cloud as a new form of environment. These young artists investigate possibilities for tearing open analog reality, finding consciousness & meditation in a torrent of data.
One of the largest international media art festivals, CYFEST was founded in St. Petersburg in 2007 by independent artists & curators. The festival promotes the emergence of new forms of art & high technology interactions, developing professional connections between artists, curators, engineers & programmers around the world & exposing wide audiences to the works in the field of robotics, video art, sound art & net art. Over the years, the festival has invited artists from Russia, USA, Germany, Japan, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Finland, Italy, the Philippines & other countries.
