Unzipping Codes: video art and code art of Spain and Ibero-America, has been the result of the efforts of the Spanish Embassy in Seoul to develop a project connected to “media art”, as part of its cultural program. The result: a video art and net art exhibition, completed by two live performances, a net.jamm and a festival which brought together different digital art manifestations.

The festival, named “Positronic Party” was divided in two parts lasting one hour each. The first, containing a nostalgic and contemplative tone, was illustrated with imagery filmed in an actual mockup built especially for the concert in the W Hotel of Seoul. The mockup displays a small city and a natural space surrounding it. The discourse centers on the relationship between humankind and nature and especially criticizes the over-exploitation of the environment and its consequences. The second part was for dancing and was illustrated with both dynamic and cheerful visuals.
