Media Arts issues. The NFF environment encourages new forms of Media Art

Vancouver, BC, from =A0October 14 to 28, 2004. The theme is TECHNOGRAPHY:
the inscription of culture in technology.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY is a forum to explore and embody these inscriptions
in the form of artistic expression and discourse.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY looks at the ways in which cultures inhabit and
transform media spaces and technologies.

NFF04:TECHNOGRAPHY will bring together practitioners and theorists from
across grassroots, gallery academy and academic contexts and provide a
platform for conversations among the diverse voices of contemporary
digital regionalism.
