Five works accessioned to The Achive of Digital Art (Database of Virtual Art) documents the rapidly evolving field of digital installation art. This complex, research-oriented overview of immersive, interactive, telematic and genetic art has been developed in cooperation with established media artists, researchers and institutions. The web-based, cost-free instrument – appropriate to the needs of process art – allows individuals to post material themselves. Compiling video documentation, technical data, interfaces, displays, and literature offers a unique answer to the needs of the field. All works can be linked with exhibiting institutions, events and bibliographical references. Over time the richly interlinked data will also serve as a predecessor for the crucial systematic preservation of this art of our time.
Digital encounters is a lecture program with the curator and the artists of the exhibition to make an introduction in digital art and an approximation into the “Extimacy” speech. On this occasion, the guest is the artist Martin John Callanan

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.
