Tuesday August 23 The recent technological developments bring about new configurations of space and experience. Meanwhile, both sciencs and cultural theory have worked to dissolve the opposition of nature and culture. The rusulting cultural hybridization has an immense impact on our lives, ranging from philosophy to everyday routines. This web of connected cultural/technological concepts is discussed in the Spacescapes sessions.

Wednesday August 24 In spite of this 'wholistic' networking tendency a fragmentation of experience is evident, while the cultural metaphors and oppositions, considered obsolete, still seem to persist. ISEA'94 makes an inquiry into these historical oppositions. Starting from technology and culture, through questions of gender and power, to the collapsed distinction of Capitalist West and Communist East, the High&Low Sessions aim at an updated version of the cultural map coordinates.
