In 2004 Ars Electronica created Ars Electronica Export, a program dedicated to the production of exhibitions, workshops and education programs for and together with partners from all over the world. The partners are institutions involved in art and culture, science, and education as well as private sector companies. Since then, several dozen of such projects have been realized, and each one has been specially configured together with the hosting partner with the aim to involve local as well as international artists. The activities of Ars Electronica Export play an important role in maintaining and extending the range of our vital network of artists and creative collaborators.

Digital artists are creators as well as engineers of experiences; by employing the new means of digital technologies, they give us a look behind the backdrop of our modern information society, they provide new and alternative ideas that are not only based on the rational and economical approach of technology but on the demands and desires of humans.
The projects of this Ars Electronica Exhibition are eye- and mind opening prototypes; they show us surprising ways how we can use all senses of our bodies to interface with the virtual and digital world.
Ars Electronica’s 300-m2 exhibition space showcased leading-edge digital art and interactive videos, and gave visitors a glimpse of the fantastic world of virtual reality.
