We Dream in Database

We Dream in Database (2010)
Rhizome Curated Exhibition by Will Felker

‘We Dream in Database’ is ordered under the aegis of Lev Manovich’s opinion (as outlined in his text, “Database as Symbolic Form”) that databases present what would ordinarily be imagined. The works contain many subjects, representative gestures — mediated through the artists’ visions, accessible to the public by means of the database. If databases are understood as a constant, these works comment on the empirically shared perceptions of (and experiences with) space, across cultures and locations, and reflect on individual experience. I feature these works use of ‘traditional’ database (an archive), but also how the database is displaced to draw out expressive effects.

FILE PRIX LUX has the intent of rewarding, motivating and stimulating the emergence of new talents in the area of electronic and digital languages. Since 2000, FILE – Electronic Language International Festival constitutes an international interdisciplinary platform for the development of innovative and creative projects in the area of arts and technologies. FILE is a cultural, nonprofit organization that promotes a reflection on the main themes of the global contemporary electronic-digital context, always in a transdisciplinary vision in the political complexity of our time’s cultural universe. For ten years now, FILE has collaborated, through exhibitions and symposiums, with the aesthetic-technological development that the new electronic-digital languages offer to contemporary cultures, as well as it has positioned Brazil in the world context of those new trends. In 2010, FILE will accomplish a long-awaited objective: to award to some of the projects an international prize in money.
