Digital Fringe is an open access public arts festival that places contemporary screen
based media in public locations. It provides artists with access to an extensive network
of hundreds of public screens and non-traditional audiences throughout Australia and the
world. Screening venues receive a playlist curated from the diverse visual works of
animation, abstract, video art, short film, machinima, motion graphics, photography and
stills submitted to the Digital Fringe festival via our website - digitalfringe.net
and upload your works.
In keeping with the Fringe Festival charter, Digital Fringe is open access and accessible
to emerging and established artists, particularly those working in screen based and new
media. Submissions are received from all around the world: from professional artists to
bedroom doodlers and everybody in between. Artists maintain control of their own
Screening venues range from busy bars and cafes, bustling shopping centres, walls of TV’s
in electrical stores, State and regional libraries, art galleries, and cultural
institutions, suburban shop fronts and on massive urban screens in public plazas like
Melbourne's Federation Square. Digital Fringe screens are also appearing in outback
Australia, and across the Americas's, Africa, the UK and Europe. All submissions also
play on the Digital Fringe website.
Digital Fringe is seeking more screens to participate in an open access digital art
festival in September/October 2010
We are seeking screens, anywhere! No screen is too large or small - it may be on the
ceiling of a dentist surgery, the back corner of a library, on a computer monitor, part of
a shop's window display, a wall of TV's in an electrical goods shop, a projector
in a foyer, or a huge public screen. We simply want to get submitted artistic content into
as many nooks and crannies of public space as possible.
If you have a public screen, a projector, TV or spare computer monitor that you would like
to light up then sign up and become part of an extended network of public art - a global
network spanning from the USA to the UK, Romania to Egypt, Outback Australia to Federation
Square in Melbourne.
Help us to bring cutting edge digital artworks by local and international artists to the
public. It is an eclectic mix of quality screen based digital art including animations,
video, short film and stills. All artworks are public friendly and do not require audio.
