Digital Art Festival Tokyo 2006 will be held mainly by a Japanese TV program for the new century NHK “Digital Stadium” (Digista) which seeks new talents of digital art. The digital artworks from CG, animation, film works, to interactive installation, which have been introduced in the Digista, will get together at Ariake and Shibuya in Tokyo from December 1st to 10th.

This event, which will be the 4th this year, is a festival of digital art from Japan, introducing both international and domestic digital art works, seeking and supporting young artists, offering exchange opportunities between artists and agencies. Admission free.
Also, reforming the stereotypical image of “artworks to be seen at a museum”, they focus more on the concept of letting people enjoy digital art by “Seeing”, “Hearing” and “Touching”.
