THIS IS OUR MOMENTO! WeMadeThis.es, Spanish Postdigital Creation Culture
During the selection of the artists these past few months, Héctor Ayuso, director of OFFF, a festival dedicated to digital cultures where a new generation of creators has emerged, affirmed the following: as Spaniards we carry in our DNA the “ability to survive”. We understand better than anyone that the way we relate to new technologies is changing. Today the real challenge for the Spanish artists is to look for new and unconventional ways to tell stories and focus every effort into becoming exactly what they have always wanted to be. WeMadeThis.Es celebrates this moment with more than 300 pages of visual imagery and its audiovisual equivalent by means of a webpage and an iPhone app.
