Pixelspaces is the series of symposia staged annually by the Ars Electronica Futurelab. They take up the latest trends and scrutinize them from the perspective of a media laboratory. At this year’s installment entitled Goblin City, participants will present projects and approaches at the nexus of media, art and public space.

The urban realm is being equipped to function as a multimedia environment. Digitization is making a physical impact on the cityscape itself. Architecture is being endowed with the qualities of media as infrastructure ranging from built-in telematic furnishings to location-based services form interfaces linking up virtual and material spheres of communication. Creative encounters beyond the realm of advertising and high-tech décor deliver real proof of the growing awareness of the mediatization of modern society. The results of these confluences integrate themselves into their physical settings as subtle interventions in addition to ones charged with accomplishing often-mundane tasks. The manifestations of media art beyond the confines of the exhibition context—as an architectural component or in the form of the telematic configuration of an environment—has meant the emergence of a new quality on the part of installations.
