Eye’s Walk Digital Festival 2018
celebrates the Year of European Cultural Heritage.
We create an expanded cultural experience highlighting European culture through its mixtures and contradictions in two different geographic areas of Greece, in two magical places: Ano Syros: 27th, 28th, 29th of July, Castle of Mytilene: Full Moon 26th of August. Virtual Realiy Installation, Workshops, Video Installation Art & performances are connecting 24 artists from all over the world with the two communities and the visitors in the public space. Eye’s Walk Festival turns the projectors on and illuminates the face of Europe Now, with all the intense social and political problematics that feed our culture. The water, the inhabitant, the moving person, the refugee, the immigrant, together will forge our artistic narrative, a choreography of life and creation.

“We chose the archeological site of Casltle of Mytilene as the ideal place where the negotiation of the individual with the modern world , its forces and weaknesses can happen safely.” The artworks are bringing up issues for the individual’s position in the modern, worldwide community.
The archeological site, place of memory, insight and thought becomes a place where the past meets the present through the most modern art and digital technology.
