PIKSEL17 festival for elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi

Art and technology in southamerica through 13 years of the asimtria festival

Marco Valdivia, Michele Fernandez La Rosa

The asimtria festival is a constant space for Exchange, discussion and collaboration, where stakeholders related with experimental music, sound and audio-visual art, electronic media and open source culture converge; to share ideas and experiences and convey their teachings to contemporary society.

This festival has been active for 13 years during which more than 300 artists from around the world and particularly from south-american have shown their work and shared their experiences working in the intersection between art and technology. Our intention is to revisit these projects and analyse their impact in the context of south-American electronic art where we are currently finding our own ways to appropriate technology and develop a language of our own.
