Onassis Foundation Brings 'Digital Revolution' to Athens

Digital-RevolutionAn exhibition that explores our digital past and the journey into our even more digital future will open its doors to the Athenian public on Tuesday, at the Onassis Cultural Centre (OCC) on Syngrou Avenue. From the early days of Pacman and “Super Mario” to the new realities of 3D printing and holography, “Digital Revolution” traces our first baby steps into the world of algorithms and pixels right up to its modern-day and future impact on the arts, design, music, fashion, film and gaming.
On the way, it stops at some digital industry milestones: from Tetris, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak to Augmented Reality, films like “Gravity” and “Inception,” or the music of Björk and the Black Eyed Peas’ It then moves on to our possible digital future and the rapidly changing digital revolutions this is likely to bring: the era of cyborgs, wearable technology, drones and “big data.”
Earlier hosted by the Barbican in London and the Tekniska Museet in Stockholm, “Digital Revolution” lives up to its name, with a highly interactive series of digital exhibits covering every area of human endeavor, especially in the arts. It occupies all three floors of the OCC, as well as the surrounding grounds, and is divided into several sections, each having a different theme.
The first is Digital Archaeology, which starts its journey in 1970 and each decade right up to 2010. Creative spaces looks at how our concepts of time, space and narrative have been revised by the use of digital tools. Sound and Vision and State of Play move on to the world of animation and the whole new vistas for visual effects now open to makers of films and games, before the last section entitled “Our Digital Futures.”
The exhibition will run until January 10, opening from noon until 9 pm on Sunday through Thursday and from noon until 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets can be purchased at a discount online in advance or at the door, while there are also discounts for large parties, families, young children and the unemployed.
