BLOOMING FESTIVAL welcomes an external new media art project for one of its locations through the open call #bloomingyou. The selected project should match the concept of "blooming", meant as evolution or change.

We are looking for projects/works/processes at the intersection of nature and technology, which are inspired by, reproduce or rework suggestions, phenomena or natural elements of all kinds through technologies.

Projects can include installations, A/V performances, soundscapes, video, mapping, etc… either conceived for real life or for the Metaverse, virtual environments, URLs.

Projects will be reviewed by FEDERICA PATTI (Digital arts curator and lecturer at NABA Roma), FILIPPO LORENZIN (digital contemporary art curator and teacher at Paris College of Arts), and the festival art direction (QUIET ENSEMBLE).
