Origin and History:

Struttura is a three days event born in Tuscany with the aim of giving new stimulus and creative inputs to the research, experimentation and creation ofnew art forms linked to digital means and to the web. Stuttura’s talks are held by artist and critics and are accompanied by projections of videos and of the speakers’ works. The exhibition hosts video-installations and digital works and is born from the engagement of different professionals: artists, art critics, researchers and new technologies experts. They debate around topics concerning communication and digital art, with the awareness that, videoart and other forms of electronic art characterize what can be defined "ultra-contemporary art". The main purpose consists in questioning their possible future developments. The projects that have been presented, besides stimulating emotions, sensations and perceptions, contain several issues that the authors want to bring to the attention of the public. First of all the fact that the advent of the web is changing the way of producing art and that the digital frame doesn’t apply to only one medium, but is a transversal concept which introduces a new alphabet. [2] For this reason Giacomo Verde teknoartist [5], during the presentation of some of his video, stated « ...I was born as a storyteller and the need to use digital technologies was a step to become a storyteller of nowadays, not the presumption of being innovative... » [3]
