Twilight Zone – Between Analogue and Digital Media
Malta is a place where the tradition of fireworks lives on. We read this as a way of drawing pleasure from communing with the energy and vigour of light.
Fire is a visual representation of warmth and the sun, and moving light images are exceptionally pleasing. A viewer of a fireworks show experiences an optical ecstasy of spectacular burning. Light is a carrier of art which serves to immerse the viewer in an artificial luminous environment which can be used to examine their perception. Adopting digital reproduction techniques for the purposes of artistic creation, this event aims to create a project about light which presents fire not from a thermal stance, but from a visual perspective. This project will also consist of a two-day international symposium with the participation of foremost academics and artists specialising in digital media and other related forms.
