This ISEA organized exhibition presents a state-of-the-art
survey in the area of electronic arts in the Netherlands.
The exhibition rooms in theLantaren/Venster theater are
partly shared with WDS. WDS is responsible for varied "interactive
consumer media". On the ISEA exhibition especially academies
and institutions will present themselves here but also some
autonomous artists. Several artists have made or compiled
pieces especially for the Artificial Nature theme. With
this exhibition, ISEA tries not only to give a survey of
the Dutch situation vis-a-vis electronic art but also to
effect a meeting between artists andinstitutions that are
active in this area. Some of the programs running on the
WDS part, like the "Doors of Perception" CD-ROM are part
of the ISEA program.
The exhibition is located in the
foyer of the Lantaren 2 theater, in several "secret" rooms
behind that and in the Venster 2 theater.
2 theater contains a labyrinth which leads back to the foyer.
It will contain prints of 2D and 3D computer graphics, interactive
installations, video tapes and some mixed media installations.
WDS gives with the exhibitions in Lantaren/Venster an idea
of the state of the art on the multimedia field in relation
to the theme "digital nature". On several systems (... CD-ROM,
CD-i, Sega game-consoles) programs will be shown, that have
a direct link with this theme, such as virtual reality and
simulation games. The public can get involved with realtime
simulations of reality. With this exhibition WDS doesn"t
want to give an overview of the technical possibilities,
but emphasises on the contents of multimedia. Multimedia
is something you have to do yourself. This exhibition gives
the public that chance.
The exhibition rooms in theatre
Lantaren/Venster are shared with ISEA. ISEA places, next
to stills, several "interactive art installations". The
exhibition takes place in the Foyer of Lantaren 2, in different
"secret spaces" behind and in Venster 2.
