I spent a couple of days in Linz, Austria, visiting for the first time the Ars Electronica centre and the related festival which is happening these days. It's an impressive event, lots and lots of things to see, spanning from the latest technologies used in scientific research to the most visionary art installations. The city and people of Linz (and Austria, more generally) are definitely doing a wonderful job in keeping this up, and especially in making this so accessible also to non-experts!
The video summarizes a bit the things I've seen (but trust me, there's LOTS more!) including:
Hylozoic Grove [Philip Beesley], the homeless robot [Electric Circus], Porcelain recycling, the Windowfarms project, Telenoid [Hiroshi Ishiguro], Ocean of Light: Surface [Anthony Rowe, Gareth Bushell, Chris Bennewith, Liam Birtles, Ollie Bown], Earth [Finnbogi Petursson], Lighting Choreographer [Minoru Fujimoto], Fuckhead, Sonic Architecture: natural reverberation space, Cycloid-E [Michel Décosterd, André Décosterd], My husband and me, me and my wife [Nico Ferrando], Braun Tube Jazz Band [Ei Wada], Dies Irae - Remembering EB 180
You can find many more pictures on the Ars Electronica flickr page.
