The Covid-19 crisis has highlighted a potential for art on digital platforms, and KP wants to support this - due to the extended reach an online exhibition platform enables, and to promote and disseminate digital art in Denmark.
The digital art offers an essential opportunity to reflect on our contemporary perhaps most significant paradigm shift - from an analog to a digital era - through art. It works on the media's own terms and is thus an important aspect in understanding the development of culture in the digital era.
This development of digital culture relies on works created for virtual platforms and the Internet. That means that the works are created with digital tools and presented on digital platforms, which is NOT to be confused with digitized art, such as photographs of analogue works of art that may be exhibited in galleries on the Internet.
Definition of digital art
In this context, we define digital art as artistic design that has digital and electronic media as a basis for an art practice. The works can be cross-aesthetic (visual media, music, performance, light, etc. in the same work), and/or contain interactive aspects.
General genres within digital art include: video art, sound art, web art, art games or apps, podcasts, software art, augmented reality and cross-media projects.
- The artistic idea must be grounded in the digital format. We do NOT want photographs of analogue works of art.
- The work must be created to be able to work on common digital platforms such as computer, tablet and smartphone - both Android and iOS (and possibly via links to separate software)
