Started in 2003 at Galerie SAW Gallery by Jason St-Laurent and Tam-Ca Vo-Van as a spotlight on electro-acoustic and audio-visual performance and installation, the biennial event moved to SAW Video and evolved to focus on local, national and international music and media artists with a increasing technological engagement in their work.
In 2008, Artengine took over the project and produced a third edition, expanding the reach of the festivals programming, while fostering stronger networks between new media artists in and outside the capital region.
As a deeper engagement with technological expression winds through many forms of creative expression, so expands the collaborations at the heart of the festival. From the Canadian Film Institute to The Ottawa Art Gallery to local music promoters the festival weaves a thread through the creative fabric of the city and we pulls it together into a concentrated week of electric events.
