International Media Art Festival CYFEST 15: Vulnerability at Deering Estate.
The exhibition comprises three layers—media installation, sound, and performance—that invoke technologies developed to rediscover and affect space. The Deering Estate, a historical landmark with over 450 acres of natural landscape, including eight native ecosystems, will host a series of works expanding on the festival’s theme of Vulnerability. These pieces created with CYLAND Media Art Lab engineers will be in dialogue with the historical context of the place, irrevocably connected both to the past and future, the urban and natural.
This exhibition is an invitation, while following the route from one artwork to another, to take a closer look at the issue of how we are included in the world. At the Deering Estate, we featured the works of artists who closely collaborated with the CYLAND Media Art Lab. At the core of CYLAND is the creation of media art in close dialogue between artists and engineers.
CYFEST 15 at the Deering Estate is designed to be placed in spaces with characteristic sensibility and meaning, such as historic buildings or natural environments. It is envisaged as a cross-disciplinary and multi-sensory exhibition that stimulates the perception of the artwork’s idea via different senses and experiences.
A public presentation and performance program will take place on Sunday, December 10, 2023, in the Deering Estate’s Palm Grove and in the Visitor Center’s theater. Children are invited to participate in the media installation "Artists Union" by Anna Frants by interacting with the drawing machines at the Visitor Center foyer from 2 to 8 pm during opening day events.
The exhibition will run from December 1, 2023 – January 3, 2024, at the Deering Estate outdoor grounds and third floor of the Stone House.
