CYFEST is proud to once again partner with The Made in NY Media Center by IFP.

Video Curator Victoia Ilyushkina will present CYFEST’S DIGITAL VIDEO ART PROGRAM:


The annual Cyfest Digital Video Art Program is a selection of 20 art works which are chosen from international submissions via an open call.

The series explores the role of art in our current forecast — bringing into focus how artists absorb modern technologies as tools to create mirrors of our current selves; uncovering how we, the population at large, currently rely on augmentation through vast digital means.

Donato Piccolo

Walking on the cloud


shoes, electronic systems, motors, plexiglass, steel, distilled water, nebulizers, dim. 100×100x100cm

Donato Piccolo works on the imaginary line between art and science, sculpture and machine; he plays on new technologies with a keen sense of irony.
Natural, dynamics, physics, and electronic phenomena are turned into kinetic installations, emotional states, bachelor machines, pure abstraction of the human spirit. For 11th Cyfest in New York, Donato Piccolo is going to show a part of the project “Thinking the unthinkable”, curated by Isabella Indolfi and premiered in the Hermitage State Museum in St Petersburg on November 2017 and developed thank Cyland Media Art Lab and Galerie Mazzoli.
“Thinking the unthinkable” is a metaphor, an experiment on human limits and possibilities, on the relationship between nature and artifice.

Donato Piccolo (1976 Rome, Italy) participated in the 52 and 54th Venice Biennale and exhibited in important museums around the world: Himalayas Art Center, Shanghai (China) / Centro de Desarollo de las Artes Visuales de Havana (Cuba) / MAXXI e MACRO, Roma (Italia) / Cini Foundation, Venezia (Italia) / Fondation Francès, Senlis (France) / Galleria Civica, Modena (Italia) / Boghossian Foundation, Brussels (Belgium) / Beyond Museum, Seoul (South Korea) / George Kolbe Museum, Berlin (Germany) / StadtGalerie Museum, Kiel (Germany) / ISCP, New York (USA)

Cloudy with a Chance of Pixels is a collaborative work made specifically for the 27-screen video wall by Blake Marques Carrington’s Interactive Studio I class at Pratt Institute’s Department of Digital Arts.
Taking inspiration from the festival theme of “Digital Cloudiness”, a team of 9 digital arts students explore ideas around pixelated nature, universal simulation, and the data cloud as a new form of environment. These young artists investigate possibilities for tearing open analog reality, finding consciousness and meditation in a torrent of data.
