SCREEN AND INTERACTIVE MEDIA SECTION
Co-curated by *Karina Karaeva,* Head of Cinema and Video Art Department at
National Centre for Contemporary Arts (Russia)
Media art draws its participants into an active interaction with an object
of art, using various audiovisual means including video, technical vision
technologies, telecommunications, sensory feedback devices, acoustic
characteristics, performance basis, site-specific and theatre experiments.
Preference is given to projects where the interactivity principle is not
something additional, but a central element of meaning and where
distinctiveness and relevancy of the concept is completed with a
high-quality technical rendering.
Interactive media are expanding onto territories of performance, cinema and
media. They include use of both inner and outer intercation element. The
interactive component now permeates a work of art simulteneously expanding
and concentrating the meaning of the work. Thus under conditions of
interactive intervention the traditional narrativity is interrupted and a
work of art is transformed into a collage. The technical execution here is
undoubtedly fundamental but it doesn’t define the quality of a work, only
adding to its meaning and the knowledge of its interactive structures. The
structure of interactive media is a definition of context for various forms
of communication, a use of artificial forms, or rather a distortion of a
traditional meaning of an image. Here a disruption and deformation of an
image and its integration in an other interactive form is in highest demand.
