MAY 08 2008 | lisbon/portugal: offf lisbon´08

live: byetone, solo, performing_d.o.a.t. @ offf festival 08, lx factory, lisbon, portugal

OFFF is a cutting-edge festival exploring the latest in digital aesthetics and software language. OFFF festival brings together the artists that are breaking ground and shaping new standards in media and design, becoming the essential meeting point for the international scene of digital creation. OFFF is the only event of this kind.

but OFFF is more than an event about any of these disciplines. more than a design conference, a multimedia trade fair, or a digital animation festival. OFFF is an enthusiastic celebration of a new visual culture.

OFFF is spreading the work of a generation of creators that are breaking all kind of limits. those separating the commercial arena from the worlds of art and design; music from illustration, or ink and chalk from pixels. artists that have grown with the web and receive inspiration from digital tools, even when their canvas is not the screen.

OFFF dreams about the digital future, and then writes the code for it.

past participants in OFFF include legends of graphic design and visual communication like Neville Brody, Tomato, Kyle Cooper or Stefan Sagmeister; acknowledged software artists such as Jared Tarbell, Lia, Casey Reas & Ben Fry, or Daniel Brown; innovators of the moving image like We work for Them, Tronic Studio, D-Fuse or Renascent; explorers of advanced interaction like Soda, James Paterson, Amit Pitaru or Craig Swann; and the most important names that have defined the aesthetics of the experimental and creative side of the web: Joshua Davis, Yugo Nakamura, Hi-Res!, Josh Ulm, or Erik Natzke. the festival has also a special spot for the main names in the spanish scene (Area3, Vasava, Onionlab, Cocoe, Dani Granatta, La Mosca...) and for creators of surprising new kinds of sonic landscapes: Tujiko Noriko, Alva Noto, Frank Bretschneider, The Vegetable Orchestra, Sutekh, Taylor Deupree, System, Daedelus, Stephan Mathieu, Kenneth Kirschner...
