Currents: The Santa Fe International New Media Festival

El Museo Cultural (Main Site, events take place throughout Santa Fe, NM)

June 14 – 30, 2013


CURRENTS has grown from its local, New Mexico roots in 2002 into an annual, international, citywide festival committed to a free-access celebration of 21st Century New Media Arts. 303 artists, from the United States and thirteen countries, submitted work to the 2013 open call.

A sampling of this year’s CURRENTS includes:

• an interactive EEG controlled video installation;
• a touch modulated imagery and sound sculpture;
• spaces that experiment with audio and tune the audiences responses to image;
• performances integrated into video installations;
• web-art;
• art-games;
• apps used as art making tools;
• and single channel programs – narrative, abstract, personal and documentary.

CURRENTS:THE SANTA FE INTERNATIONAL NEW MEDIA FESTIVAL is presented by Parallel Studios, a 501(c)3 organization committed to reinvigorating creativity in the arts with an emphasis on community participation and free, public access.
