Conflux.Infinity-Collaboration Now & Forever -- The 12th Digital Art Festival Taipei 2017

As an important urban art festival in Asia, the Digital Art Festival Taipei employs the city as a base and invites artists, all citizens and art enthusiasts to participate in digital art. Together, we shall create an ever happening collaborative relationship that brings together different fields, embraces all identities, includes all diverse interests and unifies the body and mind. Upholding the concept of ConfluxInfinity as the theme of the Digital Art Festival Taipei 2017, we use Taipei as a geographical center and encourage all participants to be more than just viewers and actively engage in the art festival through digital art and artworks.

ConfluxInfinity denotes multiple meanings: it refers to the convergence of energies from different parts of the world and conveys regional significance; it points to the tolerance of differences and demonstrates positive significance; it symbolizes the ensemble of multifaceted knowledge and manifests dynamic significance; and it also represents the accumulation of past and future, and therefore, has temporal significance. The conflux beckons at infinite possibilities that enable collaborations between artists and different professions and disciplines. Digital tools can form an online network that serves as a platform for displaying urban experiences within and without this island. Art enthusiasts or general citizens can enjoy a new aspect of equality, boundarylessness and free participation by applying the concept of identity as a vehicle without limiting themselves to a dichotomy defined by the roles of artists and viewers.

Atlas Series by WANG Po-YenThe artworks and activities featured in ConfluxInfinity - Collaboration Now & Forever are all conceived through the ideas of convergence, collaboration, and ever-going development. The creative approaches and artwork forms of digital art should not be fixed; neither should digital art be defined by how artworks are displayed. Meanwhile, all fields should enjoy the possibility of collaborating with digital art. Therefore, setting itself apart from the past eleven Digital Art Festivals, ConfluxInfinity - Collaboration Now & Forever hopes to offer a viewing experience that genuinely belongs to the city, provides participatory diversity, presents surprises in collaboration, and shatters barriers and limits.
