5-29 Novembro November 2011

Caros amigos, artistas, colaboradores e entusiastas da arte digital. O Festival FONLAD apresenta a galeria on line dos artistas seleccionados. 46 artistas de 16 países apresentaram propostas nas áreas da fotografia / pintura digital (16), video e animação (18) e web arte (13) tendo como tema de referência a viagem e o pensamento.

Contrariamente àquele que, sentado frente ao televisor, bebe toda a informação inútil com que é bombardeado e, numa inútil tentativa de defesa, salta de canal em canal, de inutilidade em inutilidade, o utilizador da internet, ao saltar de página em página, vai construindo uma imagem do mundo. Um pensamento do mundo. Para este, o mundo parece subitamente reduzir-se a uns milhares de páginas que amalgamante se empilharam na sua memória. Contrariamente à televisão, cuja acção do espectador é passiva, o utilizador da internet, age por vontade própria, salta de página em página procurando algo. Mesmo que não encontre nada do que pretendia, construiu mentalmente um caminho, uma viagem pelo mundo virtual. Desta viagem, desprendem-se da sua memória, imagens soltas, sons, palavras, pequenas frases, como que pequenos postais esquecidos no fundo de uma gaveta e à espera de serem redescobertos. São estas memórias destas viagens virtuais esquecidas que o Festival Fonlad pretende recuperar da memória dos artistas, desafiando-os a apresentar projectos artísticos baseados nestas experiências.

Dear friends, artists, developers and enthusiasts of digital art. Fonlad Festival presents the on line gallery of the 2011 selected artists. 46 artists from 16 countries show proposals on photography / digital painting (16), video and animation (18) and web art (13) having as reference the voyage ant the thought.

Unlike television, which is a passive spectator of the action, the user of the Internet, acts at will, jumping from page to page looking for something. Even if he doesn’t find anything, he built a mental journey, a journey through the virtual world. This trip, that has been shaded in the corners of your memory, loosing images, sounds, words, short phrases, like small cards forgotten in a drawer are waiting to be re-discovered.

These are the forgotten memories of those virtual trips that FONLAD Festival seeks to recover from the memory of artists, challenging them to produce art projects based on these experiences.
