MindSpaces Ars Electronica 2020 Presence


MindSpaces in Ars Electronica 2020

MindSpaces was part of the Ars Electronica Festival 2020, one of the biggest new media arts festivals in the world. As a remote and hybrid event this year, Ars Electronica consisted of various events, talks and symposiums around the world. MindSpaces consortium presented the project and its technologies during Garden Thessaloniki. MindSpaces consortium partners and artists also participated in talks and events during the festival.



Garden Thessaloniki

MindSpaces Garden hosted the MindSpaces project, funded by the European HORIZON2020-STARTS program. To encourage collaboration between research projects and artists, STARTS funded residencies for artists at technology institutions and for scientists and technologists at artists’ studios.

Ars Electronica Garden Thessaloniki hosted pre-recorded interviews of the six artists selected from the Open Calls, a pre-recorded demonstration of the MindSpaces platform, and a live demonstration of the DïaloG project held by the consortium’s digital artists Maurice Benayoun and Refik Anadol.
