PIXILERATIONS [v.8] is a new media festival in Providence, Rhode Island (USA) that investigates the state of new media arts through installations, performances and film/video screenings. It is part of the larger FirstWorks Festival (www.first-works.org), a multidimensional performing arts festival in Providence each fall. Pixilerations is produced by FirstWorks in collaboration with the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Brown University, and the City of Providence's Department of Art, Culture + Tourism. Now in its eighth year, Pixilerations is one of the foremost venues for new media artwork in New England.

In an era of Facebook/Twitter-inflamed revolutions, biotechnology ethics wars, and youtube-generated museum exhibitions, this year's festival seeks to examine the question "Where – and what – is New Media Art today?" New Media art traditionally held a role at the intersections of art, science, technology, ansd social realms, yet artists who do not identify as New Media artists now make free use of the same tools as video game programmers, robotics engineers, and DJs. Pixilerations [v.8] seeks work that broadly explores these identity questions of art/not art, new/old.
We invite artists, musicians, performers, film/video makers, and new media practitioners to submit work.
