ARTFUTURA 2019 – PROCESSING THE FUTURE – LIVE AV + TALKS + AV SCREENINGS
(Festival of Digital Culture & Creativity)
Sunday 1 December | doors 3.30pm | £5 concessions / £7.5 adv / £10 otd | BUY TICKETS
Today we live in the present future more than ever. We are right in the middle of two great crossroads that will determine the future. We talk about the Anthropocene and a new phase in human evolution, augmented and reconnected by technology.
Convinced that transformative technology must be centred on the human being, the future collective intelligence augmented by technology will become in a few years a deep global mind already announced by Terence McKenna at ArtFutura 92.
Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Internet (IoT) will converge to create Collective Artificial Intelligence, whose language will be virtual reality and neurodigital telepathy. The collective immersion allows the fusion of people and the world into a whole. This will be the future, a world of expanded reality.

– Kimatica Studio – Artist Talk
Maria Almena is a Spanish London-based creative director and a multimedia artist, co-founder of the creative studio, Kimatica Studio, and art curator of Flux events. Maria’s practice research is exploring concepts of human consciousness and perception, making those transcendental ideas accessible to a modern audience, to inspire a reconnection with magical thinking. She is fascinated by the juxtaposition of the physical and spiritual, the virtual and real worlds, playing with perceptions aiming to transport the viewer into new worlds, using experimental technologies that help to dramatize the transition between different states of being and highlighting the importance of the journey in itself.
– Richard Evans SENTINEL – Q&A

spectacular audiovisual show inspired by the planet’s most urgent issue – climate change. An original soundtrack of analogue synths, electro-rhythms & live vocals accompanies data visualisations from award-winning artist Valentina D’Efilippo, video content and laser lighting for this captivating event. SENTINEL is developed with support from Arts Council England, Manchester Science Festival and Waterside Arts. A SENTINEL album will be released for download from Autumn 2019. His projects take inspiration from real-world science to explore biotechnology, machine intelligence and the environment.
