FIBER 2021

28 — 30 October

FIBER is an Amsterdam based festival that showcases contemporary digital culture, audiovisual art, speculative design and forward thinking music culture to enhance other worldviews. We provide a meeting place for fans and creators of groundbreaking digital art and performances.

Through the lens of the arts, our events reflect upon the ever shifting impact of technology on society and the environment. We explore these topics collectively through lectures, installation art, performances and by learning from pioneering creative making-processes.

FIBER 2021 preludes a regular festival edition in May 2022.

With the new multi-year theme ‘Mutation’, the programme will explore the (in)ability to shapeshift into new ways of being. Mutation can be seen as an unwanted development but might also present opportunities to change habits and minds. 

The once-established social binaries to categorise the world must give way to new fusions. Mutation could provide us with both speculative and actionable manners of moving towards a new existence. We do not start from a trans-human approach but we look at ways to open up to more-than-human futures, rooted in an ecological reality.

For the past four years, the duo have been working on an innovative sound art installation. Raumklang is a sound sculpture that is exclusively observable through hearing, as sensors detect the visitor’s physical movement through the piece.
