Digital Choc 2013

BY SAMSON SYLVAIN
@ VOL 99 ON JAN 23, 2013

In 2012, the French Institute in Tokyo organized the first edition of Digital Month, a festival designed to highlight French creativity in the fields of digital cultures and new images. This event reached a wide and diverse audience by presenting all aspects of digital creation, from contemporary art to moving images, architecture to video games, and also digital publishing, contemporary music and performing arts. After the success of this first 2012 edition, the French Institute of Japan reiterates the digital experience by organizing Digital Choc, the second edition of this festival, in February 2013.

Through the theme of "digital territories," the 2013 edition would like to explore areas that digital technologies has disrupted, influenced or revolutionized. Artworks proposed in this digital arts festival are to be presented in several cities in the French cultural network in Japan (5 institutes IFJ, 4 French Alliances), and partners (concert halls, shops, cinemas, galleries, etc.)
