The eighth edition of Clujotronic explored further ways of merging art and technology into the museum’s space. Thus, a digital sculpture has been for the first time presented in Cluj during the festival, while into another museum’s hall a live paint-mapping has brought together two graffiti artists and a mapping expert. Electronic music performances, live sets and fascinating sound and light installations enhanced the dimensions and the acoustics of the space. The public had also the chance to discover the museum’s vast network of cellars transformed into the Digital Cave exhibiting innovative and interactive artworks from local talents. The festival’s annual game jam saw a record number of participants with over 40 young developers facing the challenge.
