Thinking in Networks: Western/non-Western Interaction

Abstract (in English): 

This paper discusses artists' practices that in aesthetical-technical ways intervene into computer networked environments. The author is interested in Japanese media artists who, in interactive installations, rethink the use of technology that we encounter in the industrially-culturally compressed spaces of the metropoles, like Tokyo. These technologically saturated spaces have created super-density as a new cultural form of the present. The focus of the discussion is on artists' interventions in networks that in different ways make us aware of the possibilities for approaching and reflecting upon our behaviour in such media-cultural and ubiquitous mediascapes.
