ad: INTERFACE and SOCIETY exhibition



In our everyday life we constantly have to cope more or less successfully
with interfaces. We use the mobile phone, the mp3 player, and our laptop,
in order to gain access to the digital part of our life. In recent years
this situation has lead to the creation of new interdisciplinary subjects
like "Interaction Design" or "Physical Computing".

We live between two worlds, our physical environment and the digital
space. Technology and its digital space are our second nature and the
interfaces are our points of access to this technosphere.

Since artists started working with technology they have been developing
interfaces and modes of interaction. The interface itself became an
artistic thematic.

The project INTERFACE and SOCIETY investigates how artists deal with
the transformation of our everyday life through technical interfaces.
With the rapid technological development a thoroughly critique of the
interface towards society is necessary.

The role of the artist is thereby crucial. S/he has the freedom to
deal with technologies and interfaces beyond functionality and usability.
The project INTERFACE and SOCIETY is looking at this development
with a special focus on the artistic contribution.


INTERFACE and SOCIETY is an umbrella for a range of activities
throughout 2006 at Atelier Nord in Oslo. Read more at:
