BORDERLAND – The Entropy of Identities
Entry Deadline: Dec. 7
International ArtExpo is selecting all interesting video/short films to include in “BORDERLAND – The entropy of identities” international video art screening which will be held in Nottingham (UK), at Nottingham Playhouse, from the 13th to the 26th of January 2014.
Entropy is conceptually defined as the measure of the level of disorder in a changing system. Starting from this fascinating concept, each person can be considered as a changing system, as the same as for a specific culture, city or country, until the whole universe. All these systems are subjected to a process of continuous inner evolution which overcome their own boundaries to contaminate and crossbreed each others. Borders of this evolving systems get more and more fleeting, and their identities turn out fluid, multiple and changeable. These continue changes find in the inevitability of evolution their measure of order.
Nottingham Playhouse has been one of the United Kingdom’s leading producing theater since its foundation in 1948. Touring work nationally and internationally, the Playhouse remains firmly rooted in its vibrant home city, where its spacious modernist building – fronted by Anish Kapoor’s “Sky Mirror” – is one of the region’s most popular landmarks. Thanks to the program “Digital Stage” curated by The Cutting Room innovative digital artworks have been brought to Nottingham Playhouse, offering an alternative viewpoint to Nottingham Playhouse’s artistic program.
