DESCRIPTION

The era of a real :: virtual global series… CYFEST comes to NYC (Feb 2016) where CYLAND and Pratt Institute connect those engaged in the borderless, multidisciplinary, progressive movement redefining the intersection between Art :: Tech.

Digital networks provide the traditional means of communicating within a new borderless set of parameters, creating a whole new structure of collective consciousness where dynamic, self-assembling tribes can unify instantaneously. Enabled by digital catalysts, society has gone from local to national and from national to transnational tribal behavior and congregation.

In this post-post-modern epoch, what defines one’s place in the virtual and the physical world is the ability to communicate convincingly reality or fantasy. Medium matters, but only up to a point, as a conduit for the message. 

CYFEST NYC: Patterns of the Mind enquires intothe primacy and power of a creator’s message, in which any medium is only the tool used to carry it across.
