13th Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) #PostFuture Journey (Athens, Greece)

We are pleased that film “Athanasia” by Fred L’Epee in collaboration with Music Composer Rey Eisen is selected for the Digital Art Exhibition #PostFuture Journey at the 13th Athens Digital Arts Festival 2017 (Athens, Greece)


Flying beyond digital reaching the #PostFuture

Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) continues its collaboration with Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” and introduces the multimedia exhibition under the title #PostFuture Journey from 08/03 to 23/07 2017.

The airport, a place of shifting realities, where travelling and everyday life coexist, constitutes the ideal starting point to takeoff towards an interactive journey into the “post-future”. Visitors are prompted to experience a “post-digital” reality, where the digital merges with the analog and the physical.

The exhibition will be held in the exhibition hall Arts & Culture located at the Arrivals Level of the airport. It includes installations as well as video art and animation screenings of both Greek and foreign artists. For the purpose of the exhibition, Athens Digital Arts Festival chooses 41 video art and animation works, 25 of which will be screened for the first time in Greece, the impressive audiovisual installation “Light Catcher” of Giannis Kranidiotis, a dialogue between sound and light and the interactive installation “Emotional Mirror” from the company random quark (Theodoros Papatheodorou Phd, Tom Chambers) which enables the audience to interact with it, by analysing facial expression and reflecting them back as tweets.

The first launch of our journey to the fascinating “post-future” is waiting for you in Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”.
