Sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch. Through these five senses we interact with the world - and with other human peoples. They are our interface. F.I.V.E. is the new international video art project created by Magmart.


After the international success of 100x100=900, and waiting for IX edition of Magmart Festival, this new project explores the five senses. Like the previous project, the goal is always the same: look into the gaze of video artists on the mankind. While 100x100=900 took the history of the 1900s as its subject, F.I.V.E. focuses on our senses - on how we relate with others. Senses are the medium between the world and us and are the instruments of feeling. They channel information to all of us from the universe; they supply - even literally - the food for our body and for our mind.
