14. April 2014, Seoul

Dear Lily & Honglei,

 

This is a formal invitation letter to attend the Digital Art Weeks festival in Seoul.

The ETH Zurich based festival Digital Art Weeks is a meeting point between art, science and technology. Over the last eight years, DAW has been fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange worldwide. Its program offers a unique insight into current research and innovations in arts, science and technology illustrating resulting synergies in a series  of interdisciplinary projects, making artist aware of impulses in technology and scientists aware of the possibilities of application of technology in the arts.


This year, the festival is organized in collaboration with Seoul National University, Sogang University, KAIST University,
National Chengchi University, Museum of Art on the SNU campus and Platoon Kunsthalle.

The festival will take place from the 2nd of October to 8th of December 2014 and includes the following events:

  1. Hybrid Highlights Exhibition in the Museum of Arts (MoA)

  2. The Conference on Convergence and Creativity Museum of Arts (MoA)

  3. OFF Label exhibition and performances in Platoon Kunsthalle Seoul

  4. Augmented Reality exhibition in the Changdeokgung Palace’s Secret Garden and Culture Station 281 Seoul

Your work regarding the themes of the Hybrid Highlights Exhibition as well as the OFF LABEL event represents an important contribution that will influence collaborative nature of the Festival. Due to funding guidelines and high cost of holding the festival, we have very limited possibilities of support. Therefore, we are providing this letter in hope that it will facilitate the access to other funding sources that are available to you. The festival in turn will provide a unique opportunity to present in diverse context with high level of visibility, which will inevitable further your career and offer future opportunities internationally.

 

Sincerely,

Arthur Clay

Director DAW International
