Image Radio festival 2007
Categories: Curating

The first edition of Imageradio was organised in the city center of Eindhoven. The event was curated by George Fifield, Olga Mink, and Rene Pare.  Image Radio features current developments in art that display interactive images in public space. The show will include video, animation, interactive art, new media art, and more. The festival is also an experiment, critical reflection, and preview of how animated visuals in public space impact our cultural, social and physical surroundings. The increase of large and small display devices, particularly in urban centers, provides a new medium. Public space becomes a medium in which dynamic and manipulative content influences our perception. Potential applications of this new medium have hardly been explored. Image Radio 2007 (november 2, 3 and 4) presents a selection of international artists who demonstrate that research and reflection on the new medium, “moving images in public space”, can lead to unexpected and meaningful results. Accordingly, the emphasis lies on interactive approaches and experimentation with new media technology.

Image Radio gives space to current developments in art that focus on moving images in public space. Interactivity with the public and the surroundings plays an important role. Image Radio is experiments, critical reflection, and a preview of how animated visuals in public space impact our cultural, social and physical surroundings.

Image Radio is presented in the center of Eindhoven, in locations from the Stationsplein to the Victoriakwartier. The festival opens with a symposium featuring various prominent speakers. Image Radio 2007 consisted of twelve (interactive) installations on different locations in Eindhoven.
