The purpose of the inter-media forum is to facilitate the cross-border exchange between interactive media, digital art and generative design. The focus of this year’s event will be the investigation of cultural consequences of a post-industrial technological society. The exhibition "abstract abstract - the systematized world" will serve, within this context, to deepen the discourse on technology and society.
The selected works of art exhibited under the heading ‘abstract Abstract’ aim to decipher the systems of abstractions enmeshed in our Lebenswelt, such as, for instance, the use of digital image creation within the full creative scope of software technology.
In lectures followed by symposia, international artists, cultural workers and technologists will grapple with current and fundamental tensions between art, technology and society - and with the related issues. The vvvv group provides a comprehensive program of professional and elementary level workshops for a wide range of users. In the workshops, specific hardware and software solutions, as well as new ideas and concepts for media installations, will be presented and discussed.
The declared intention of NODE e.V. i.G. is to foster digital culture in art, society, science and research. The association includes members of the vvvv developer and user community. VVVV is a software project that employs graphical programming language to media installations as serves the purposes of a variety of designers, artists and agencies. The vvvv group is responsible for the vvvv development.
Curators of the exhibition: Eno Henze, Marius Watz
