Art and Artificial Life: Vida 1999-2012
etoy is part of the retrospective "Art and Artifical Life: Vida 1999-2012". The exhibition is looking back at the 13 editions of the International Contest that Fundación Telefónica has been organizing. 23 works from over 50 countries and over 1500 proposals will be shown on the 3rd floor of the new Espacio Fundación Telefónica. That space has been created to accommodate the new culture of the 21st century in the heart of Madrid.
And we like this:
"Users of Espacio Fundación Telefónica are active agents, who research, discuss and take part in the generation and transfer of knowledge through the successive activities scheduled."
Here is part of the Press Text about the Space:
Creativity, innovation and technology in a space open to everyone
This new Espacio is born as an exponent of culture in the 21st Century, a culture that proposes a participative way of seeing things and developing knowledge, art, and technology, contributing to its creation and bringing it closer to society. In fact, the techno-artistic change which marked the beginning of modernity also defines the spirit and genesis of Espacio Fundación Telefónica, which proposes a thrilling vision from the vanguards of the 20th century, the authentic melting pot for technological progress and new ways of communicating, to the emergence of the Internet and the smartphone, and the social network revolution that they entail, plus a reflexive and interactive journey through the history of this unstoppable process.
