An International Media Art Exhibition in Manchester
October 11, 2005 - January 15, 2006
Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester
A group of internationally renowned media artists brings surreal, poetic and thought-provoking installation environments to Manchester, that invite you to explore the ways we now communicate with each other and with technology.
Yet the technical nature of the art works becomes invisible and instead they challenge the audience to take part in interactive scenarios, unexpected stories and impromptu visual dialogues. The projects examine our life in media culture and a digitised society: by linking the physical installation to the digital space and vice versa - within extraordinary models of art and networking that encourage the viewers' very own creative input.
