Vida, Art and Artificial Life Award Winners

The hybrid forms of the artistic proposals submitted to VIDA and the transformation of the discipline of A-Life itself have prompted the jury to consider new issues, such as the rising importance of simulation in both social life (for example, in the concept of virtual personality) and organic life (evident in the concept of "neo-organisms"). These phenomena are increasingly present and have therfore received special attention in our current approach to art and artificial life.

Mobile/Immobilzed: Art, Technologies & (Dis)abilities

At the intersection of contemporary media art projects, current scientific research and technological innovations, we encounter astounding new ways in which the limits of the able and disabled body and mind are enhanced or expanded. How do such practices alter conceptions of the body, of the mind? What are the implications of these emerging practices?

Curating Media/Net/Art

Expanding the curators' field of action - allowing them to incorporate more than the supervision, contextualisation and exhibition of artwork in museums, galleries or off spaces - is closely linked to the media-specific characteristics of art produced on the Internet. Internet Art does not necessarily have to be presented in a customary exhibition space, because as long as there is a computer with Internet access, it can be accessed anywhere any time.

Struttura “Organica” 2007

L'idea di Struttura-Organica nasce da una semplice constatazione: il mondo è un organismo vivente. In anni in cui la tecnologia avanza imponendosi sul quotidiano, gli individui cercano rifugio nella natura e riscoprono il corpo. Ma non è necessario negare la tecnologia per scoprire la natura. Al contrario sono molte e sempre più interessanti le esplorazioni delle interconnessioni tra le due sfere.

It also offers greater possibilities for recording, storage and archiving of media content. This provides not just the potential for greater choice and flexibility in re-working content (tv progr...

Goodbye Privacy – Ars Electronica 2007

A new culture of everyday life is now upon us, bracketed by the angst-inducing scenarios of seamless surveillance and the zest we bring to staging our public personas via digital media. One in which everything seems to be public and nothing's private anymore. Panopticon or consummate individual liberty? At symposia, exhibitions, performances and interventions, the 2007 Ars Electronica Festival will delve into what the public and private spheres have come to mean and the interrelationship that no...

Cities from Below

Quale ruolo può giocare l'artista nella formazione di una società in transizione? E' possibile pensare la città come 'luogo di lavoro collettivo' in cui l'arte svolga una funzione necessaria nell'intercettare desideri, bisogni e conflitti emergenti? Come partecipano le pratiche artistiche ad una azione collettiva quando vengono a mancare - come oggi - tutti i legami classici dell'appartenenza sociale?

Dalla Land Art alla Bioarte
