 The World is a Hologram

Dating back to antiquity, theories which want us living in a hologram, apart from science fiction can also be endorsed by scientific data. Those who believe in the holographic theory of the universe, support that everything we know in our world are three dimensional depictions of data, stored in a two-dimensional form somewhere at the edge of our universe. This automatically means that we are all closely bonded with everything around us, as part of one large unity where the present, past, and future coexist simultaneously.

Anything that ever existed, anything that exists, and all that will exist, merged in one unity…

The hologram is often described as a three-dimensional depiction, consisted of two light rays (e.g.laser) while in order to properly work it must be also lighted by a third one. A fundamental feature of holograms is that all data are circulated through the whole, meaning that even if cut in two, still each piece will maintain all information intact. In this case, we will get two identical but complete smaller holograms, proving that this segregation is only fictive.

The scientific community, have found itself in front of a predicament while discovering that whatever gets pass the event horizon of a black hole, as it can never leave, gets lost forever when the hole gets disembodied by Hawking Radiation. As a solution, mathematics was able to prove that when data gets pass an event horizon, they also get imprinted on its very surface, allowing them to escape and thus be maintained. This theory was named holographic principle and was considered eligible to be deducted on a universal level, arguing that the whole universe is the hologram reflection of two-dimensional data stored in its very borders.

Later experiments, have proven that some subatomic particles under specific circumstances have the ability to communicate with each other instantaneously despite their distance, thus have given to the universe another credence of a hologram. Extending this research, scientists extracted that even the brain works in similar mechanics as memory is not stored in a sole neuron but through the schemes and patterns that the neural stimuli follow while extending throughout the whole brain.

Within the neurons of cosmic memory time does not exist, only ideas…

This kind of theories about the world can be traced back to antiquity. In Plato for example, and his “theory of forms” he tried to institute that ideas and forms exist somewhere independently out of the visible world, and we are only able to know and perceive their reflections. Additionally, Socrates speaks of the “allegory of the cave”, describes the reality we understand, as the shadows of the real things, which are projected in front of us like a movie because of a fire that burns between them and us. Chained in the cave, and being able only to look in front of us, we have no perception of what takes places behind us, thinking that the whole world is only what we can understand with our senses. Hence is up to this one person who is letting himself free from the chains, the philosopher by Socrates, or in our case the artistic work to awake the rest of the world and lead them out of the cave, in the light and real knowledge.

Using this stimulus, the International Festival of Digital Arts in Greece, Athens Digital Arts Festival is addressing an open call for its 15th and anniversary edition towards all artistic and scientific community. Artworks from the past, present, and future coming from the worlds of art science and technology are asked to co-exist in a festivity of digital culture, showing how everything is connected to each other like pieces of one undivided whole, while anything we perceive through our senses is nothing more than depictions of our ideas.

Anything one can imagine can become reality, hence options are infinite…

Extended Deadline 30.1.2019

In Progress Feedback Festival 2019

Artistic field:




The In Progress Feedback Festival (IPFF), the festival that has become a tradition and institution at Kinitiras, is celebrating its 10 years of existence this year and will take place between the 29/03/2019 and 01/04/2019 in Athens.
We are celebrating the anniversary edition of the first festival in Greece that focuses on the creative process and the relationship between the creator and her/his audience instead of being product focused.

In 2016 the In progress Feedback Festival was included amongst the best festivals in Europe by the EFFE International Jury (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe,

The main aim of the In Progress Feedback Festival is research, experimentation and the ways through which the in progress pieces are affected. The uniqueness of the IPFF is located in its two very crucial functions:
the development of the work and feedback on it. Functions that demand special sensitivity, courage and update of our knowledge.

For the anniversary of the 10 years of the IPFF, apart from the contesting groups-who are selected following application-we will invite artists that passed by the festival the past years to present part of their creative process, conduct a residency, offer workshops and mentoring to the contesting artists as well as be part of the jury.
Reknown artists but also recently established groups from the area of the performing arts will share outlines from their work and will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with other creators (mentoring). Trying out various approaches without the pressure of the production of a final outcome and getting in direct touch with the spectators through interactive discussions, questionnaires and other imaginative ways of idea-exhanging, the participants receive the feedback that will lead them to a complete performance in the future.

This year’s thematic umbrella for all of Kinitiras’ activities is THE JOURNEY. The notion of a journey both litterally and metaphorically. The journey in life, in space, in time, in the body, in the mind, in dreams, in litterature, in the streets, in civilisations.The suggested works will somehow be connected to this particular topic and their approach will express the journey that they choose to explore.

The piece that will win the jury’s award will receive a symbolic amount as a support for the upcoming production, while the group that will receice the audience’s award will receive a month’s residency for the completion of its research.

The existence of a festival such as the In Progress Feedback Festival (IPFF) provides the opportunity to the society, its creators and the people that support it to coexist, to influence each other and develop with freedom and respect towards difference. It is also an important breeding ground for expression, mutual support and inspiration through research and the performing arts.

Theatre and dance groups can participate in this competitive festival with projects of 10′-20′ that are still in progress. The on stage artists should be from one to four and props cannot be bigger than 1m x 1m.

Kinitiras will offer to the selected groups*:
– Promotion / Advertising
– Technical assistance
– Two indoor rehearsals in each group
– Mentoring during rehearsals if requested.

Applications’ deadline: 28/12/2018
You can fill in the application here.

*Travel expenses and accommodation are covered by the artists.
