We are honored and pleased to be present at the 43rd Ars Electronica multimedia festival! We will have our “garden” there, Ars Electronica Garden Nova Gorica, which highlights the audiovisual, intermedia and theoretical-research works of our colleagues, students and alumni. They are organized in four parts and under the common title GREETINGS FROM THE FUTURE IV – A TOUCH OF NEW REALITIES. We want to acknowledge the fact that the current reality will have a longer duration in time then we maybe thought before, and that we will get to know its consequences only in the future. Through pre-existing impressions of sensitivity, our garden’s programme questions the transience, limitation, silence, closeness, voice, touch, pleasure, fears.
