Ars Electronica Festival: New Concepts for a New World

"THE BIG PICTURE is the theme of the [August 30 to September 3] 2012 Ars Electronica Festival ... Occupying the focal point is the effort to identify all–encompassing images that capture the world that's coming to be, Big Pictures that do justice to the progressive globalization and interrelatedness of our world, ones that capture its contradictions and flaws as well as ways in which people are coming together. By showcasing inspiring best–practice examples from art and science, this year's festival is a call for a new, open–minded way of considering the development of a viable vision of our future – how such a Big Picture ought to be composed and how it might become reality."

(Ars Electronica Festival, 2012)

Stable Knowledge / Beständiges Wissen?

"Modernity replaced this metaphysical casting through the conception of a knowing subject as a stable medium. Information technology transformed the modern subject into an object of in–formation. But this process does not necessarily lead to the domination of information technology over humankind. It also enables the transformation of the modern subject into a project (Vilém Flusser). The medium of our projections is digital casting. Within it logos is not primarily oriented toward a stable object, but consists of unstable messages. Angelia displaces logos."
