The Biennale of Electronic Arts, Perth actively embraces the opening of new technological frontiers.
BEAP is an international event which includes a conference,symposiums, forum and exhibition presenting the theoretical, cultural and philosophical basis of Electronic Arts practice. The inaugural thematic focus for BEAP is LOCUS, the place where we believe consciousness exists. The idea of place is being renegotiated through the developing biological relationships, effecting consciousness. These effects are further confronted through the external input of computer generated and augmented virtual realities. We find ourselves as the centre of this point of convergence, our senses become the portals, our skin becomes the screen between these immersive realties. This portal, this relocated screen, should now be at the forefront of minds, when the skin no longer defines the boundaries of our sense of self.
