Videotage’s “Foundation - a Web3 Media Art Festival” is a web-based media art festival, which aims to groom a new generation of media art culture from Hong Kong and for Hong Kong in the new era of the Internet.
Since 2020, humanity has embraced web technologies unprecedentedly in adapting to the harsh physical limitations caused by Covid-19 and the ensuing economic fluctuations. As a result, we find ourselves emerging from the pandemic with a slew of new technologies, platforms, and trends that offer new potential for media artists to expand the boundaries of their creativity. In fact, we are at the doorstep of Web3 - the next generation of the internet.
After 36 years dedicated to moving images and media art, Videotage presents Foundation - a Web3 Media Art Festival. It aims to discuss, exchange, and experiment with the diverse possibilities of Web3 from the vantage points of decentralization, humanized AI, and Extended realities (XR), in view of collectively expanding the future visions of Internet technology, from an artistic and technological points of view.
