Migrating Reality


Electronic and digital systems generate completely new forms of migration. In the creative arts, new phenomena related to migration and the synergies of disparate systems are emerging. Artistic products evolve from traditional forms into hybrid digital forms. Analog products are being digitized; data spaces are trans-located from one data storage system to another; existing sounds, images, and texts are remixed and fused into new datasets.

By fusing analog physical local spaces and global communication networks, hybrid spaces are created that participate to both the local and the global condition. The lecture introduces the potential of hybrid (combined analog/digital) spaces as creative environments enabling the communication, the migration of ideas and the development of a “hybrid” (both local and global) culture of experimentation.
