"For me Digital Graffiti has become a mainstay of the experimental film scene in the Southeast, a place to screen time-based work that often has a more challenging visual or narrative aspect. My award has gone toward travel to the Taranaki region of New Zealand to attend SCANZ 2013: 3rd Nature, an event that focuses on hybrid practices at the intersection of art, science, culture, technology and indigenous knowledge, as an artist in residence," says David Montgomery “Florida Homegrown” winner from DG 2012.
During the festival, Alys Beach opens its doors, courtyards, and pedestrian paths to groundbreaking international artists who literally transform the entire resort town into a living work of art. The annual festival allows digital artists to explore how their fluid forms intersect with technology and wrap the architecture of Alys Beach to create entirely new art forms.
