Betwixt Festival — Experience interactive digital art in the new art festival

The Conversation by Samantha Chua is a site-specific installation that features kinetic sculptures that activate in the presence of people passing through the space.

As Singapore's push to become a Smart Nation gained steam last year, two artists found themselves wondering where their ilk and art fit in this sweeping move to use technology to improve lives.

Serena Pang and Ng Wen Lei, both in their 30s and partners of art collective Spang & Lei, are launching the inaugural Betwixt Festival, which looks at how digital technology can foster human interaction and build community through art.

The festival, funded with help from the National Arts Council, includes an exhibition, art performances and masterclasses. There will also be panel discussions and lectures on topics that explore, for example, the gaps in culture and education which influence the development of art and technology.
