Digital Art Festival, Songshan Cultural & Creative Park
Taipei, Taiwan - 2012
Beesley presented 'Protocell Cloud' for the 7th Digital Art Festival Taipei. Curated under the theme "Artificial Nature," this year's exhibition investigated works of digital media technology that extend our conception of the living world and blur the border between the natural and the unnatural.
The festival was hosted by the Digital Art Centre at the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park in Taipei. The Digital Art Centre is recognized as a hub of the emerging digital content industry and culture in Asia. Beesley was present for opening weekend and media events at the festival, and also participated in a documentary about the work of artists presenting at the festival.
