The second edition of the South Asian Digital Arts Festival has kicked off and will go on till 30th November 2021. This year’s theme is Art at the intersection of science, technology and media. The online exhibit, which is freely accessible on www.deconfine.org, features the works of more than 20 international artists from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, France, Afghanistan and Nepal. Launched in collaboration with Alliances Françaises, the festival “hopes to draw attention to the rich and dynamic digital art” landscape of the subcontinent.

The art work ranges from video and sound art to generative art (made with artificial intelligence). The exhibit features numerous interesting projects. There’s the audio interview compilation Queer Brown Feelings to an evolving tapestry Waters of Change – a collaborative work- that centres around the role of water in our lives. There’s also the fascinating Women’s Worlds, a feminist exploration by visual artist Reya Ahmad and Rashid Rana’s Anthology: wall size digital photographs made out of thousands of smaller ‘pixelated’ images.

The ‘Online Exhibition’ section focuses on 7 digital artworks by South Asian artists, exploring the theme “Technology as an Institution.”
