Serafio - Public Building & Digital Art



Description of the strand:

Call for the creation of a modern artistic project – in situ installation – at Serafio of the City of Athens, which, through technological applications and city’s data, creates a unique experience to the people that visit it.

This strand aims at the promotion and development of interventions related to art and technology as an essential part of urban development.

At the same time, it reinforces and acts as a catalyst in creating an open and creative identity of Serafio as a public building, as well as promoting innovation in the identity of Athens.

The artistic proposal uses new technologies as well as new technological applications, is interactive and utilises city’s data.

Serafio is a unique Sports, Culture, and Innovation Centre in Athens, where some the most innovative programs of the municipality of Athens are hosted. It is a modern multi-purpose building located at Piraeus & Petrou Ralli Street, open all days of the week and accessible to all residents of Athens.

With this action, we focus on Athens, exploring the city-related data, looking for its modern history. Its sites, its residents, its values and its culture are just some of the characteristics that form its identity.

What do the residents of Athens think about their city?

Can new data be produced in the city?

Which form can city data take beyond their digital dimension and what can be their alternative use?

 

Let’s discover it together!
