A Parliament of Parliaments

The dynamics of science cannot be conceived without politics nor the dynamics of politics without science. The social, the scientific, the technological, the theoretical and the practical blend together. We want to make an exhibition where politics, science and technology explore a new future based on a diagnosis of present practices illuminated through the perspective of material history.

Don’t Call it Art: Ars Electronica 2003

What I wanted to critique was not the extremely dynamic and important field of "software art" but the way it was represented by Ars Electronica 2003 festival. Its paradigm can only be described as cultural isolationism. This is a dangerous position to take. Today, when pretty much every artist and cultural producer is widely using computers while also typically being motivated by many other themes and discourses, is it in fact possible that "digital art" happens everywhere else but not within th...

Ars Electronica 2003

Ars Electronica is one of the, if not the oldest and biggest festivals for electronic art worldwide. It was launched in 1979 and led a relatively marginal existence until the late nineteen eighties. With the introduction of the Prix Ars Electronica (since 1987), organised by the local branch of the ORF and the building of the Ars Electronica Center, it was given a permanent home and organisational base, and gained international influence and reputation through the relatively well endowed 'Prix'.

Read_Me 2.3 software art festival results

The idea of Read_Me 2.3 is to test an alternative festival model, especially since the subject of the festival is software art, a realm where people with artists' self-identities coexist with programmers whose views on the process of creation, distribution and even the very meaning of their work can be dramatically different from those of the artists.

Plug / Inventory

This project was inspired by Web-based art that depends on two, three, or more, technological add-ons that many computer users don't have. If more is better, PLUG / INVENTORY must be the best, because it demands that users have ALL plugins to experience it correctly. If you're like me, you probably don't have more than one or two plugins configured correctly. Each time I upgrade my browser or operating system, there are more things to fix. Sadly we'll never fully experience this. But hopefull...
