Meanwhile in Shanghai….

This month Shanghai is hosting a huge eArts (read digital arts) Festival. The organizers teamed up with Fabrica, the Centre Pompidou, MIT, Ars Electronica and ZKM.

Andy Cameron, director of Fabrica Interactive, just informed me that Fabrica is keeping a video diary of the event.

There’s already some good content such as an interview of Andy with Gerfried Stocker of ars electronica about the background to the Shanghai interest in media arts, the meeting of communism culture with Creative Commons, some trends in digital arts in China, etc. There’s also a peak inside the ars electronica pavilion which i recommend if you haven’t been to ars this year, they seem to have selected (mostly) the pieces i didn’t like and won’t therefore blog about.

The festival runs until November 11th.
