Node is a festival dedicated to the meeting of the visual arts with music, cinema and new technologies, which brings in Italy the most interesting projects of the world scene, turning Modena in a reference point on the international scene exactly when the city needs to experiment with other forms of expression, filling spaces with new sounds and images.
Over the last four years Node, thanks to its unique character, has become an event of great importance among the city's initiatives: it is able to appeal the attention of thousands of people, from Italy and abroad, and bring them into the prestigious venues of Galleria Civica, in Modena, in order to attend national premieres.
During the festival the city becomes a space for interactive installations, creations of sound and video makers, works carefully selected among the production of famous international artists, exponents of digital sensibility.
With a program full of events, performances and workshops, Node wants to be a regular appointment for Modena, a festival to draw young people closer to digital arts, combining live media performances, audiovisual projects and workshops.
The union between music and the arts is, in fact, the goal that Node intends to realize; a bond that is difficult to establish but, once created, it will be impossible to break up. This is the second year that VIE and Node work together, hopefully a basis for future projects.
