Cinesthesia – which organizes the international digital art festival Eye’s Walk Digital Festival – in collaboration with CulturePolis, explore the time of global eclipse due to the pandemic, the role of digital art, digital culture, combined with the cultural heritage of Greek islands Syros and Corfu. The project aims to connect people internationally and to highlight the physical space, as a fixed point that brings people together and can create their new stories.
Social Cooperative Enterprise “Cinesthesia” since 2014, runs Eye’s Walk Digital Festival, on the island of Syros, in Greece and internationally. The festival connects to the unique architectural legacy of a city by creating a layer of digital work (projections, installations, performative) to interface the public space with the local community. Storytelling and narratives are key to the work as is the Greek word «Eros».
“I perceive my curatorial work as an act of “Eros”, that infuses the city with different emotional and physical states, transfiguring it, into a transformative –creative experience with a potentially tremendous impact on neighbourhoods’ life, street stories, closed windows’ agony and they are the essence of a living and loved space”.
