Pictoplasma Festival: Symposium Sunday
Panels, talks, Kids’ Workshop, Performance
15th PICTOPLASMA International Festival of Character Design and Art
In its final hours, the festival culminates with an open day here at silent green, featuring talks, panels, performances, and a workshop for kids.
To resume the festival, a symposium investigates this year’s theme Inter__Faces, with lectures by academics from the fields of media theory, cultural studies, and psychology. They discuss what makes an object an interface and the role of emotions in our interaction with technology. Panel discussions will include artists from the exhibition.
Kids’ Workshop with Tartaruga Feliz
Deborah Rodrigues aka Tartaruga Feliz, founder of Glück Workshops, invites children aged 6–12 to create simple robotic figures using different materials and motors. The workshop begins on the hour, every hour, and admits groups of up to fifteen children. Prior registration is not possible.
Performance: Aïsha Devi ft. Emile Barret
Aïsha Devi’s live performance combines thumping beats and rave stabs, seraphic and guttural throat singing, mystical linguistics and corporeal sonics. She is accompanied by Emile Barret’s visuals that integrate video footage into virtual environments full of alchemical symbols: a real-time simulation in Unity.
Start: 7:00 p.m.
Admission: 10 Euro
