Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome Italy, Rome, Italy
The exhibition and the congress Artecnologie, that took place in Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome and to which Shockart was invited to take part, embodies how strong and inevitable today has become the need of investigating the relationship between art and new media.
Taking, always more as a consolitated assertion, the fact that this conjunction, by giving several ways of mixing languages (video, photography, sound, drawing, etc.), conferes to the expression a natural development of possibilities, of paths and an unlimitated expansion of the message.
We already knew it, but maybe even somebody else is going to get conviced about how quickly the global approach to reality and to visual art change, how real is the need of finding new codes to unzip, of spending time to indagate and discover the differences among thousand of similar voices, or simply how natural is to communicate by short and synthetized deeds.
