Media art long time has been understood as video and interactive art. Over the last 20 years, media art has expanded by various digital technologies. Digital coding as a process has taken over important segments of contemporary art. In recent years, even more: artificial intelligence programs, machine learning, computer games, virtual and augmented reality have become an expressive tool of many artists and art collectives. At a time when the whole world is ‘shining’ from extreme problems such as viruses, environmental disasters, wars and earthquakes of dystopian anxiety and various forms of alienation are also visible in art.

For the third year in a row, the Glowing Globe event is entitled Artificial Art Alienated, and aims to present to the public different perspectives on media and digital art. The state of alienation in the digital world as a topic has been approached by various domestic and international artists, art collectives and theorists. With an exhibition at the Kortil Gallery, symposium at the University of Rijeka and performance and screenings at the Astronomy Centre, participants will transdisciplinary present topics at the intersection of digital technologies and the humanities, artificial intelligence, ethics and ecology.
