Immerse yourself in the parallel digital worlds.

REALITIES. Patchlab 2019 Digital Art Festival

The theme of the 8th edition is REALITIES. Parallel to the increasingly polarized and climate hazard reality, man creates digital worlds. What they are and what functions they perform will be explored by the creators and artists of the festival, seeking answers to a number of questions. How digital narratives are based on reality and how much they are an extension of the creations of human dreams? How is personality being transformed in the digital world? And finally, do parallel spaces isolate from the physical world or rather broaden human perception and functioning in reality?
You will be able to look into parallel digital worlds, immersing yourself in virtual and augmented reality, in interactive films and immersion audiovisual shows in 360 ° format. There will also be a unique opportunity to create and see your own avatar. The festival program includes exhibitions of interactive works, VR and AR, performances and audiovisual concerts, DJ sets, workshops and meetings.
Below we announce the first part of this year's program.
