The Digital Decade 5, London

  • Arsene Vesnín
  • Antony Kitson
DesignCollector Network presents an innovative exhibition exploring the intersections digital and physical forms (“phygital”) in art as part of the annual event Digital Decade 5, featuring emerging artists working in the field of digital art. This year’s theme of “Cyberia” encourages artists to reflect on the concept of the newborn digital-native that is changing our common value systems.
The Digital Decade collaboration and exhibition now in its fourth year, has run successfully each year since 2013. Curated by Arseny Vesnin, the first round of Digital Decade consists of online Open Calls where selected artists are featured in the exhibition in London.
For 2017, the 5th Edition of “Digital Decade”, DCN teamed up with the leading creative platforms Ello Network and Curioos to bring 35 digital artists together engaged in creating print artworks to take a part in a London exhibition. One third of these artists made a cut from a huge shortlist selected by the prominent Jury during “Ello x Digital Decade” Open Call. Another addition to upcoming event is a new challenge made together with Sedition Art Platform that will feature the work of selected video artists. Also a dozen of interactive and phygital artists joined the exhibition in London to create an immersive atmosphere.

The concept of Cyberia is “the Unknown Territories Shaped by the Digital Ethnos”. This, “Ethnos” refers to the generation of digital people that are changing our world, and continuing to influence our culture. As our world becomes increasingly digital, it ultimately transforms to become a ‘Cyberia’.
