Ars Electronica’s 25th anniversary means 25 years of innovative projects, state-of-the-art technology, creative works of cyberart and astounding future-oriented concepts.

In a multi-year study entitled “25 Years of Ars Electronica – An Overview as Memory Theater,” Gerhard Dirmoser has created a thematic cartography of all aspects that seem relevant to Ars Electronica. The approximately 8,000 entries include all contributions, artists, texts and projects represented at Ars Electronica.

This study is the basis of a large-format wall diagram that simultaneously serves as a portal Ars Electronica’s digital project archive. Visitors can query the virtual information linked to this Datawall by using a modified personal digital assistant (PDA) that opens up access to additional, related information in the form of texts, images and videos. The technological basis of this interface consists of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags that are built into the diagram and can be read with the PDA.
