The Re-Design of Experience . 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.

Culture/Technology: Histories/Oppositions . 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.

ELECTRONIC ART IN UNIVERSITIES . Pedagogical Policies of Electronic Media .  
University of Art and Design  Helsinki UIAH . August 21

Electronic media serves as an interface to different cultural realities -
art & the humanities, science and technology, the public and the private
sphere. This multi-dimensionality often leads to an uneasy coexistence with
the traditions of the Art Academy / University / Institute of Technology.
Hosted by the newly formed Media Lab UIAH, at the University of Art and
Design Helsinki, Electronic Art in Universities is an international meeting
of institutes that offer university-level education in the field of
electronic art. The meeting aims at fostering discussion on the choices
being made in curriculum design and the formation of a network of media art
universities. For a list of presenters, see Conference.
