The Artistic Residency Program - PRA (2023 -2024) of the TRANSGRESSION art + technology PR 2 2023/2024 Project has the interest and need to make the transition from analogue art to digital art, to give the possibility of being able to digitize analogue material and to provide new possibilities for creation in reconciling two worlds to merge into a new one. Thus, the program encourages and motivates the creation of audiovisual works that present different transgressions, from the form of visualization in the digital sphere, always seeking in their development the formal connection between art and technology, but interacting with “analog” entities linked to cultural heritage intangible material from the Autonomous Region of Madeira. ​
