ARS ELECTRONICA 2004

HAPPENINGText: Simon Scheiber

The 25th anniversary of the Ars Electronica Festival was this year’s theme “Timeshift – The World in 25 years” and was held from 2nd to 7th September in Linz, Austria.

The Ars was hosting once again a series of symposium where scientists, artists and interested had the chance to exchange, debate and get inspired. For one week there is a certain digital-artistically veil over the whole city with installations, performances and panel discussions.

You had the chance to experience this year’s festivals over the internet, with “streams” from the panel discussions, in museums, exhibition areas and in the city – even the main square was turned into a time machine presented with sounds and visuals.

The Ars Electronica Center itself is always in progress and evolved completely new expositions in the last years like “Gulliver’s World“. A mixture between virtual and real worlds which go hand in hand with the user. You may take a look at the “virtual walk-around” with more information about projects like “Humphrey II” or “Sur la table“.
