Toolkit returns to Venice with a second installment of the festival,
exploring the theme of interactivity in new media art. REACTIVE SYSTEMS,
2012’s chosen title, explores the processes that run parallel to a
tangible, final product. The intent is to showcase the developmental
processes that an artist produces during the creation of a work of art.

The scientific committee made up of Domenica Quaranta, Valentina Tanni
and Debora Ferrari communicate the results of the call for the 2012
edition of the Toolkit Festival, REACTIVE SYSTEMS.

The selected artist are:

The organizing committee of the Toolkit Festival also wants to thank all
the artists who participated in the call. More than 80 requests have
been sent, and this confirms the interest of the international artistic
community towards this kind of festivals, which is one of the rare
occasion to display such appraoches due to the fact that most of the
exhibition spaces are inadequate for it.

This year in particular many requests came from abroad, giving an
example of the variety of the artistic scene in which the occasions for
meeting and exhibitions are considered an important moment for the
artists to meet an audience that grows year after year.




Festival Programme:

Day #1 | May 3 >
Venice’s A plus A will inaugurate an exhibition of interactive
installation that will be on display throughout the entire event. The
selected works will create an opportunity for the public to interact
directly with the works.

Day #2 | May 4 >
The Ca’ Dolfin Palace will host a day dedicated to interactive
performance. An artist collective shifts between contemporary dance and
AV installation.

Day #3 | May 5 >
Atelier Eve Ar: V Forte Marghera hosts the collective Apparati Effimeri,
who will put on a stereoscopic video mapping installation on a wall
mural designed by grafitti artist, Peeta. A selection of video maps
curated by Claudio Sinatti will be on display throughout the evening.


Unlike the 2011 edition, REACTIVE SYSTEMS will be a traveling festival,
moving to different locations that will host daily events. This choice
has allowed us to identify the appropriate contexts for varied artistic
expressions. Immersive environments, interactive installations,
performances, dance and electronic music will be accompanied by learning
opportunities, such as a workshop designed by Claudio Sinatti on
contemporary techniques of video mapping, merging the study of
architecture with the latest digital design techniques. The workshop
will be held from May 3 - 4 at A plus A, and will conclude with an
evening presentation of the works created, May 5 at Forte Marghera.

TOOLKIT FESTIVAL was founded with the goal of exploring the expressive
horizons that existed only in a virtual sense up until a few years ago.
Now, thanks to technology, artists are able to enrich the reality of
bodies, places and architecture by displacing traditional concepts of
the “art exhibition”. The 3-day event is an attempt to involve a whole
city in a unique experience, and prove that interactivity is not just a
response to stimuli but a complex system made up of ideas, people,
places and a mutual exchange of energy.

The initiative was realized with the contribution of senato degli
studenti Iuav e Ca’ Foscari and with the collaboration of the AplusA |
Slovenian Exhibition Centre, Eventi-Arte-Venezia, TargetDue and Comune
di Venezia – Assessorato alle Politiche Giovanili e Pace.
