Festival of emerging digital cultures and free electronic practices,
Electropixel is part of an international network of electronic arts festivals. The festival opens a singular space allowing the meeting of artists (audiovisual, musicians, visual artists, intermedia, performers, etc.), theorists, programmers, tinkerers, and inventors of all kinds and of the factories of the everyday.For this new edition of the Electropixel festival, we plan to deepen the relationship to the collective and to shared creation through a network of international exchanges. The festival continues to imagine and think about the new modalities of artistic creation during the pandemic and in particular the disintegration of the idea of commonality and sharing. We need to find links in creation, new ways to explore new writing together rather than being isolated, confined, separated. How to build creations that represent multiple and delocalized collectives.with the support of CNC-Dicream and the Cyprus University of technology

Our aim is the production of experimental artefacts/prototypes, theoretical critique/analysis, original exploratory artworks, bespoke software/hardware, and all sorts of hybrids thereof.
Promoting a playful interaction between theory, engineering, and situated practice, it comprises a multi-disciplinary team of artists, creative technologists, designers, theorists, and digital craftsmen pursuing situated research in a wide array of subareas, inter alia concerning: electronic arts, cybernetic culture, digital theatre/performance, embodiment, making/hacking methodologies, animism, media archaeology, ‘dark’ ecology, AI and bio-inspired algorithms, VR/AR, ‘alien’ phenomenology, ethnography, posthuman studies, and DIWO (Do-It-With-Others) approaches to art and education.
Drawing upon such traits, ongoing projects aim the production of experimental artefacts/prototypes, theoretical critique/analysis, original exploratory artworks, bespoke software/hardware, and all sorts of hybrids thereof.
MAD Research Lab is co-directed by Doros Polydorou and Marinos
Koutsomichalis since March 2019.
