I have a confession to make...for someone (moi) who is a neophyte when it comes to computers, I secretly have a fascination (addiction) to new media arts! And when speaking of media arts, Germany is the gladitorial arena that sets the cult of technology up against the fierce lions of artistic expressions. The Knowbotic Research is a group that definately gets a thumbs up from this bigheaded caesar. They are a group that has been pushing the boundaries of interactive art for the last 15 years. The interface between user and information dissemanation has been a regular theme in their work as they continue to be at the forefront of this ever emerging art form. For more of what is happening in the world of new media go to the ZKM museum (Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe). They showcase the lastest and greatest in this Interactive Revolution that will supplant the old gods with A.I. robots and universal global tracking! Also, check oot the annual festival in Berlin, Trasmediale.
