Harvestworks’ New York Electronic Art Festival presents innovative work made with the most advanced technology that is rapidly altering the conditions of our lives. The festival will focus on the way that technology can alter, expand and exhilarate our perceptions through the creative energies of the artist. We spotlight new artworks from the Harvestworks TEAM (Technology, Engineering, Art and Music) lab and new works created in our local, national and international community.“New York is a major hub of experimental artistic exploration of art and technology worldwide, so it is essential that the New York Electronic Art Festival bring together innovative practitioners to share their work with the public through immersive sound and color, responsive environments, interactive strategies and experimental instruments, ” – Carol Parkinson, Harvestworks Executive Director.
