Eyemyth over the years

EyeMyth was created in the Indian digital sub-culture scene in 2011, where it started as a celebration of ‘Visual Music’ at the UnBox Festival in Delhi. Today, it is a media arts festival, unique in its juxtaposition of Indian and global artists and progressive media. 

The last edition of EyeMyth saw a host of performances, installations and screenings under the theme of 'Medium as Somatic Impulse'. In partnership with the Japan Media Arts Festival, it investigated definitions of new media at both a national and global level.


Unbox Festival

Established in 2011, UnBox celebrates interdisciplinary collaborations. With the festival being the central manifest for inspiration, dialogue and hands-on action, it brings together creative, academic, and development professionals keen on pushing the boundaries of their practice.
