Cyfest14: Ferment Festival

Cyfest-14: Fer­ment exam­ines the theme of fer­men­ta­tion through the dual lens­es of art and ecology.

Through art installations, workshops and talks, we will be exploring the metamorphoses that fermentation represents.

Ferment is a collaboration with Cyfest, the biggest digital art festival in Eastern Europe, formed by Cyland, a Russian artists’ collective. The festival began in St Petersburg in 2007 and explores new forms of art and high technology interactions, exposing audiences to works in the field of robotics, video art, sound art and net art. We are thrilled to host this new edition in the beautiful Devon countryside, which offers itself as a stark contrast to the artworks.

There will be FREE experimental art installations dotted around the estate for the full ten days of the festival – a map will be available in the Welcome Centre to show where they are and offer some background on each piece. You will also be able to participate in fermentation talks and workshops, watch films and enjoy food, music and take part in lively discussions.
