ELEKTRA 2016 - JUNE 01 TO 05

The 17th edition of the International Digital Art Festival.

Under the theme AUTOMATA : Art Made By Machines For Machine, the festival questions the implications that the development of artificial intelligence have in art and culture, presenting robotic, immersive, sculptural and digital videos artworks, as well as virtual reality and augmented reality.
