Pixel-Spaces,” the latest installment in the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s annual conference series, presents selected international R&D facilities and labs that are teaching and/or working at the interface of artistic-creative media production and technological research.
The hypothesis is that these institutions and labs have one special feature in common: in the communities that form around media artists, around other media producers in the creative sector, and around the facilities in which they work and provide/partake of training, the diametrically opposed elements of the conceptual pair nomadic:settled are interlinked into a success strategy designed to facilitate innovative penetration into market segments and niche markets.
Pixelspaces 2008 has been conceived as the kickoff of a series of events that will be carried on between May and September 2009. Workshops in cooperation with numerous R&D facilities and media labs will deal with the strategies, methods and practices of “Pixel-Spaces.”
