OUR CONTACTS
TEAM

Медиа арт лаборатория CYLAND – это художественная лаборатория, созданная совместно с нью-йоркским фондом St. Petersburg Arts Project. Эта инициатива объединяет художников, критиков, кураторов, программистов, инженеров и медиа-активистов со всего мира. Существование высоких технологий, разумеется, оказывает влияние на искусство в целом, расширяя его территорию и возможности, а лаборатория CYLAND помогает художникам воплощать в жизнь их артистические высказывания.
