Electropixel 12 – Nature and Cities


For the Harvestworks Art and Technology Program on Governor’s Island Electropixel 12 proposes an evening of sound art and live cinema centered around the idea of Nature and Cities with performances that includes the sounds of nature (water, insects, stratosphere, trees…) and listening in different cities around the globe.

Live outdoor performances with Ben Owen, Solar Return, Jenny Pickett, Julien Ottavi and the Horspiel Machine.

A 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.
