Weird ! Humans playing with robots, machines that would like to be humans,
21st century mankind owns and makes use of tools that are eager to learn.
The real and the virtual never looked so similar. What if God was nothing but an equation ? Is the augmented man soon to become the usual standard ?

Nowadays, with different fields belonging to technology and sciences converging, Human evolution (both physical and societal) speeds up to the rhythm of innovations to bring about natural/artificial hybridation that blurs our frontiers and references.
The digital is everywhere, innovations rule our everydays lives, manage our schedules and transports...

However budgetary discipline comes out of an excel table error...In the neverending race to progress, the Gamerz Festival offers a pause and a moment dedicated to reflection : time to catch your breath !

Robots dancing all day long, a tri-dimensional landmark over the city of Aix-en-Provence, holographic architectures coming from other times, red fish coveted by a robot cat, bacteria juggling with toys.

More than fifty international artists present multimedia installations in four different places in town. Coming from wide European networks, artists and professionals of digital creation all join the festival to propose a free exhibition tour in town, both recreative and seriously questioning the deep changes at work in our society.
