Why We Need Images To Live?
With Japan acknowledged as the world center for the digital image (be it static or streaming video), it seems appropriate that the International Festival for Arts and Media Yokohama 2009 addressed the crossover of art and graphic design. A combination of exhibition, symposium and competition, the festival was a platform for the CREAM Competition Awards for a new phase of visual expression. The book documents this journey through new and old thinking about the role of the image in our global community, encouraging the reader to think of today’s wealth of easily distributed, digital images as a deep sea of history and memory. Embracing a variety of genres including contemporary art, media art, graphic design, animation, film and photography, the festival’s aim was to encourage discussion of new forms of expression and new directions for the future, for making and viewing artworks of all kinds.
