A series of works is dedicated to the relationship between humans and technological systems like the ones from software and net artist Lia who has recently developed the iPhone application 'PhiLia 02' where users can experiment with art.

Festival for Digital Art and Cultures
9 Sept - 10 Oct 2010
"How is the net set up?"
...is one of the questions which are discussed at a symposium and 'materialised' with examples from contemporary net art at the exhibition 'Mind and Matter' during the festival for digital arts and culture 'Paraflows' from 9 Sept to 10 Oct 2010 in Vienna, Austria.
This year, the festival is dedicated to the interdependencies between soft- and hardware and questions if the program (software) can be divided from the object (hardware) when it comes to the diagnosis of contemporary culture.
This years' festival stands under the motto 'Mind and Matter'. It reflects - beneath many other subjects, on how historian consciousness is built in the technological environment of the net and asks: "But how does time affect technology-based works, their conditions of production and their archives?"
