Inventions of technology inspire many artists to generate their visions that reflects anxiety, pointing to critical thinking and concern of the dangers of global changes. Through the various collaborations with scientists and scientific institutions, art works that have been created are gaining ever greater public interest. It is therefore necessary to redefine the positions of the latest media art and to critically discuss the issues and impacts of new technologies for the future and the development of the society in general.

The program is devoted to new-media art with an emphasis on virtual and augmentative reality.
