The 10th CYFEST opened in Bogota October 27, 2016. Its “Digital Revolution” Media Program has been accompanied by the new artwork “No. 0” from CYLAND founder and CYFEST curator Anna Frants.

At SOFA, the structural framework of “No. 0” has been built on site at Corferias prior to the event’s opening. Throughout the first two days of SOFA, the many visual components of the artwork has been placed, moved, and connected to the structural framework in a collaboration between representatives of CYLAND and visitors to SOFA. At SOFA, “No. 0” is equal parts new media art installation and social practice “intervention”.
