FIBER Weekends 2018 is a new, decentralized art event about emerging developments in audiovisual art, electronic music, performances, creative coding and advanced technologies. The programme is divided over three days and presents immersive performances, a conference, a club night and works from upcoming and established artists.
FIBER Weekends is an offspring of the (now) biennial FIBER Festival. Focused on the theme ‘Sensing Beyond | Beyond Sensing’, it explores complex technological systems and ungraspable natural phenomena through sensory experiences, and questions our understanding of them in today’s and tomorrow’s society. From the hyperreality of advanced computer graphics, our radically changing experience of time and space by algorithms and AI, to the existential question: what does ‘life’ mean on other planets? Through the lense of the arts FIBER explores new and weird ways of understanding the world.
