From Moogfest to the Mutek and Sónar, electronic music festivals are playing host to a variety of electronic and new media art. For the last three years in Paris the Transient Festival has been doing this by blending French electronic musicians, VJs, and installation artists.
The latest edition, which wrapped in early November, featured a number of digital arts exhibitions, ranging from disorienting audiovisual installations to conceptual photo series.
“For each new edition we want to show the diversity in forms and shapes of creation that can become digital art installations, whether by video, projection mapping, net art, glitch art or even webjaying,” says Déborah Nogaredes, who co-curated the installation exhibitions with Marie Koch. “This year we have followed this direction, offering videos, photographs, and many interactive installations that gives an approach of virtual reality and the relationship between man and machine.”
