::::::::::::_independent pavilion_ (housed digital art)::::::::

the _indie pavilion_ opens with the new media digital show 008 and 
illustrates the most risky side of the digital art market

the _indie pavilion_ exhibits works that are entirely digital, that 
is, those that use the new media in a no banal manner.

the _indie pavilion_ is opens only during the digital arts fair; from 
13th till 16th of november 2008.

the _indie pavilion_ tries to test the current digital arts state in 
its different representations. and aims to become the amplifier of 
what is being produced, in no way the selection of the artists should 
be seen as a contest. it tryes to show the latest production of 
digital arts but not its qualification. the present artists serve to 
confirm what is there but also to point the posible.

the architectural narrative of the _indie pavilion_ builds an 
archipelago of ducts of large dimensions on which the exhibition of 
the artistic pieces take place. it is at the *sea*, or interstitial 
spaces between the pipes, where the rest of activities happen.

as well as the digital art needs from a strong support of data 
cabling and electrical wires which feed and connect it, the visitor 
has another system of conduits, characterized in the pipes, on which 
he can circulate at different speeds and experience the visual and 
sound feelings that this art provokes. these channels, equal on the 
outer part, acquire complexity in their internal section, generating 
elfin spaces adapted to the needs of perception of every piece: 
acoustic sections, visual projections, objects exhibition, ...

_el ojo atómico de hércules_: workshop taught with oscar mora

_re:move final release_: francis naranjo + fernando casás + luigi 
pagliarini + dionisio cañas + ... 

dionisio cañas [http://www.dionisioc.com] intervention uses leds put 
together by francis naranjo [http://www.francisnaranjo.blogspot.com] 
in a mural outside expocoruña exhibition centre 

dioniso cañas carries on the series of leds which have been set by 
francis naranjo in a display unit outside expocoruña trade centre. 
his work _out of sight out of mind_ is a contribution to the 
collective works titled _re:move final release_

earlier we had the interventions of fernando casas's _despois de 
m/arte_ and luigi pagliarini's _connection_. now is dionisio caña's 
turn with _out of sight out of mind_

in his intervention he reflects on the relationship between see, feel 
and think translated into 15 languages. languages that offer distinct 
ways of being in the world and understand the consecuences of their 
approach. a reflection that starts from francis naranjo's mural and 
goes on to export his interpretation in 15 leds in 15 languages.

the intervention is part of the _re:move final release_ which shows 
that collective work is one of the fundamental components in new 
media art; without each artist's contribution a complete production 
would not be possible.
