Today we live in the present future more than ever. We are right in the middle of two great crossroads that will determine the future. We talk about the Anthropocene and a new phase in human evolution, augmented and reconnected by technology.


Convinced that transformative technology must be centred on the
human being, the future collective intelligence augmented by technology will become in a few years a deep global mind already announced by Terence McKenna at ArtFutura 92.

Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Internet (IoT) will converge to create Collective Artificial Intelligence, whose language will be virtual reality and neurodigital telepathy. The collective immersion allows the fusion of people and the world into a whole. This will be the future, a world of expanded reality.

- Premiere ArtFutura

The Premiere of ArtFutura is usually presented on the opening night of the festival and includes selections of the best and most impressive works of the programs: 3D Futura Show, Futura Graphics, Artworks, Behind the Scenes and Schools.

- They Said They Saw & Lia Mice - Live AV set

These frequent collaborators will be displaying "Space Invaders - X-Wing Series". The main central alien-like figures move in a way that defies our conception of organic movement due to their unique and distinctive behaviour, with monochrome tones and patterns. The visuals will be reacting to Lia Mice’s live experimental industrial-infused dance music. The live set-up will feature a large-scale gesturally performed instrument she created inspired by research in instrument design technology. Releasing on Optimo Music, the artist has performed and exhibited worldwide at venues including Tate Modern London, Museum of Arts and Design New York and WOMB Tokyo.

- Richard Evans - SENTINEL – Live AV Performance

Electronic music composer Richard Evans presents SENTINEL, a
spectacular audiovisual show inspired by the planet’s most urgent
issue - climate change. An original soundtrack of analogue synths,
electro-rhythms & live vocals accompanies data visualisations from award-winning artist Valentina D’efilippo, video content and laser lighting for this captivating event. SENTINEL is developed with support from Arts Council England, Manchester Science Festival and Waterside Arts. A SENTINEL album will be released for download from Autumn 2019. His projects take inspiration from real-world science to explore biotechnology, machine intelligence and the environment.

- Live Coding: Rumblesan + Heavy Lifting – Live AV Performance

Rumblesan is interested in the cross over of code with art and music, and has created and been involved with a number of projects along these lines. He is one half of LiveCodeLab, a duo doing live coded audiovisual performances at venues ranging from boats and warehouses parties to the London ScienceMuseum. Lucy Cheesman aka Heavy Lifting makes sound installations as part of creative collective SONA and performs solo live coded music using open source software and in collaboration as TYPE. She also runs a record label called Pickled Discs which is dedicated to promoting experimental electronic sounds.
