Candela Rodríguez presents her TFM at Sónar+D 2024

Sónar is back for another year, the festival that best reflects the evolution of music and digital and electronic culture. Year after year, it transforms Barcelona into the epicenter of music and avant-garde art and brings together artists and professionals from all over the world attracted by innovation in content and formats.

Within the same festival is Sónar+D, a platform for collaboration, experimentation and exploration of the latest digital trends. With a program of installations, workshops and exhibitions, ESDI presents a project in the Sonar+D Project Area led by Candela Rodríguez, alumni of the Master’s Degree in Digital Art Curation.

The project, “My digital body: creation and extension of identities through digital art”, is the result of his Master’s Final Project. It shows an analysis, creation and artistic exploration of the capabilities of digital identities, reflecting on one’s own identities and those of others, and generating a digital archive as an artistic proposal for experimentation.

In the study of digital identities, the process of construction and presentation of oneself in digital environments is examined, considering aspects such as privacy, authenticity and online self-representation. In addition, the interaction with other entities is analyzed, highlighting the importance of empathy and respect in the exploration of the digital experiences of third parties.

The creation of artistic pieces constitutes an integral part of the project, exploring how our own manifestations can capture and express the complexity of digital identities. These artworks are stored in a digital archive, providing a record of exploration and reflections on identities in the digital environment.

The festival will be held on June 13, 14 and 15, 2024, with three days and two nights of music, creativity and technology at Fira Montjuïc and Fira Gran Via.
