The International Digital Art Festival – Pixxelpoint is one of the most successful and renowned festivals of digital art in Slovenia and also abroad. Its purpose is firstly, to bring the information technology and digital art closer to the general public, and secondly, to raise awareness about a different potential to use computer among the young. In previous editions the festival had a big media response and over 3000 visitors visited it every year, so this is a challenge for the organizers to further expand it and trespass the boundaries of the gallery space which has become too small for all the projects which are to be carried out. The exhibition of digital projects, as the central event of the festival will be mounted at City Gallery Nova Gorica but will include also other locations (SNG Nova Gorica, KGŠ), besides we will also include a symposium on the given topic, as well as workshops run by guest-lecturers. Accompanying activities will include numerous concerts by well-known music performers.
Conceptually, this year's festival will build on the changes that were introduced last year. The works of art that were selected for the exhibition had not been chosen solely through the international call for submissions, but also include works by other acclaimed artists working in digital and researching art. Pixxelpoint 2004 will deal with a special subject, therefore the participating artists were asked to follow the festival’s basic theme of »Location 0 = ∞«, which was chosen by its curators Dunja Kukovec and Nataša Petrešin.
