“IDEODROME” was conceived as an experiment on how video inter-crosses with the various forms of art and with the work of individual artists who use this platform as a tool of artistic expression.
The focus of the project is on the creation of short videos on a common subject, by artists who come from various backgrounds and disciplines and their presentation in various public spaces.
“IDEODROME” is particularly focusing on how video and the digital technology of image and sound is explored through narrative and non-narrative forms, on its power to express and communicate complex meanings and on the effects of the democratisation of the recording media technology through its widespread and multifunctional uses in our contemporary era.
“IDEODROME” is also interested on how video as a recording art interacts with the performance and representational arts, as well as with the public. It is a highly inter-disciplinary project in which artists from various disciplines such as film-making, visual arts, animation, poetry, dance and theatre, co-operate to explore the potentials of the medium within the framework of a given theme.
