NOW 2006

An Internet of Cultures

Artur Serra and Dae Young Kim


NOW seeks to offer a synthesis of today's principal debates about the latest generation technologies, accepting that we are already in a cybersphere undergoing a phase of expansion, in which the speed of change is the only constant, together with the ignorance, fascination or confusion of many citizens.


This time round we are organizing a dialogue with two specialists in the so-called Internet of Cultures and a talk with Roy Ascott, a pioneer in telematic art.

Projects such as Òpera Oberta, DancingQ, Buda on the net, Open Forum and the new visual on-line Library of Anthropology are some examples of a new Internet of the arts and humanities. Voice and word, sounds, and real and virtual images all converge in a new worldwide, experimental Internet. Artists and technologies can work in real time in remote studios with access to totally new distribution channels. Artur Serra and Dae Young Kim dialogue in a videoconference about this new Internet of the arts and humanities, an Internet of cultures.

Participants: Artur Serra, Dae Young Kim
