Digital Creatures

At the beginning of this 21st century we’re all progressively mutating into “digital creatures”. Our jobs, our friendships, our emotions, our art… everything takes place, and more and more so, in the digital realm.

However the most fascinating element about digital technology is precisely that it’s full impact hasn’t arrived… yet. As the capacity of our processors increase at an exponential rate, as human beings, we increase our capacity as much as to create…. as to destroy. To achieve and to fail. Heaven and smoke.

And in this digital realm our creations will be different. Our art will be different. Our museums and the way we use our imagination to visualize our dreams will be different.

Because what is crucial in the global technological discontinuity is our humanity. Without it, everything else lacks meaning.

After “Digital Creatures”, the exhibition on show for four months in Rome, arrives the festival that opens on October 20 in more than 20 cities, with special activities in London, Ibiza, Madrid, Alicante and Granada.
