The exhibition is part of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival  =91DEAF03 Data
Knitting=92, organized by V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media (25 Februar=
- 9 March 2003 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands).

DEAF03=92s exhibition presents recent, mostly interactive art that addresse=
the role and meaning of information in our knowledge based society in an
inventive, confronting, but at the same time witty manner. DEAF03=92s runni=
theme is the use of archives and databases, where information is viewed in
its wider sense as a building block for our knowledge and view of the
world. As individuals we are being bombarded with streams of information
that should provide us with knowledge but which are often so =91out of
control=92 that they tend to confuse rather than enlighten us.
Visitors to the exhibition can interact with these artworks at several
levels by changing and manipulating them. In this way they can use the
databases and archives these artworks deploy, to generate experiences and
images of a world that is forcing itself upon us as increasingly complex
and global, but which at the same time is more and more local.
