Focus & Vision


Education will be the main focus of Cellsbutton#01. In our view, (digital) technologies offer a lot of creative possibilities, in daily life as well as in art and cultural practices. So far, extensive investigations of this potential of technology within Indonesia – and the Yogya context- have been few.
Therefore, the objective of the Education Focus Program (EFP) is to establish connections and interactions between communities, creators and artist with interest in new media.
A second innovative aim is to make a connection between universities with expertise in technology and media artists/theorists who are interested in new media art and technology. Herewith, we try to reinforce the interest in and analysis of technology; for the development of artistic production and theory.
Over the years, we have already built up valuable experience in this field in former programs and activities, organized by the house of natural fiber. The Education Focus Program (EFP) contains a brief explanation about the aims we have already reached and want to reach in the near future.


The connection between art, technology and community is one of our main responsibilities. We try to build a bridge between new media artists and their communities; the people around them. The festival will involve local communities, artists, international and local issues. All of this will become an unlimited exploration. A strong responsibility will be the basis for a successful relation between Education Focus Program (EFP), the dynamics of local communities and environment around it.

Cellsbutton#01 intends to bring together (inter)national artists, theorists, students, local communities, individuals and professionals with interest in technology and new media art.

For Cellsbutton#01, we want to build a bridge between universities and local communities interested in new media. One important reason is that there are no media courses or media faculties here. But in our perspective, technology can offer many possibilities for artistic development. Hence we want to make new networking possibilities: between universities with expertise and art schools that can offer the aesthetic context for media art.
