The DEAF04 exhibition was part of the 2004 Dutch Electronic Art Festival, with the theme "Affective Turbulence".
Feelings form the basis of our actions. We are driven by emotions, and via our senses of taste, smell, hearing and sight we continuously interact with our environment. DEAF04's exhibition presents recent, mainly interactive works of art which, as open systems, seduce visitors to perform affective acts. The main issue is how open systems and global networks influence our localized behaviour.
