July would normally be the month that the biennial festival of Video Art Miden would take place in open public spaces in Kalamata, Greece. Due to the recent implications with the coronavirus measures globally, the festival in physical spaces has been postponed, but Video Art Miden team started, already since April, during the strict quarantine in Greece, to present curated video art programs online on a monthly basis on Miden's youtube channel, continuing at the same time its collaborations with other organizations in Greece and abroad.
The PhotoPhore confirms its long-lasting collaboration with ADAF – Athens Digital Art Festival, presenting the curated video-art selection “Digital Settlement: Light becomes Data“, included in the 2020 edition of the festival.

In the face of death, it is urgent to reaffirm life. Cinema is an incurable contagion, it transforms us forever and with each film once again. We are in the dark and we do not know where we are going. In this sick world, art has become a basic item, a daily necessity for the maintenance of life.
A guided virtual-walk along the route Daniel & Clara take daily around Mersea Island with reflections on the impact that place has on our creative practice and how this has changed during lockdown. This presentation will be part artist talk, part live performance in which the inner and outer experiences of landscape seamlessly blend.
