P.Art.y is 3 days' festival gathering, exchange and inspiration for the people in media arts, electronic music and other cross-disciplinary fields emerged in digital era. All the creative energies at the intersection between arts and technology will gather and explore new landscape of arts in technological times. Responding to a changing data flow and the real-time transmission of information, works of our time are often dynamically open-ended. This open structure of arts foregrounds the live, here and now, and improvisational aesthetics, which harks back to the early network art, 'Global Groove' by Nam June Paik in 1973. Highlighting the live multi-modal experience in arts making and its reception, P.Art.y will present various media performances by Korean and internationally-renowned sound, visual, and performing artists. P.Art.y thus focuses on cutting-edge live performances experimenting with old & new media, sound-visual creation, alternative musical instrument, and participatory as well as interactive experience. P.Art.y will also showcase the commissioned projects through open call for 'Network Performance' that explores wireless network and mobile technologies as a new platform for interactive and participatory performance.
