Concept: Unlike television, which is a passive spectator of the action, the user of the Internet, acts at will, jumping from page to page looking for something. Even if he doesn’t find anything, he built a mental journey, a journey through the virtual world. This trip, that has been sheded in the corners of your memory, loosing images, sounds, words, short phrases, like small cards forgotten in a drawer are waiting to be re-discovered.
These are the forgotten memories of those virtual trips that FONLAD Festival seeks to recover from the memory of artists, challenging them to produce art projects based on these experiences. Thoughts galloping fickle virtualities.
