of the most modern visions of perceiving and recording the cultural
realities in contemporary art. It presents the current processes
and the way in which technology and society give rise to new forms
of artistic expression by using the new media.
Based on a different theme every year, the festival presents video

Past Continuous. Future Perfect.

It's 2010 and the world is filled with all the media players
.Time is on everyone's mind so nobody really has time to understand
it .The demand for media content seems to increase as all things
accumulate and the time of theire unfolding becomes shorter .The
less time we have the more media is available for us to invest our
time in .Watching a film is like an escape and it all comes down
to comparing every new moment in it to what we already know ,wondering
if we've learned anything new .A cursor always moves ahead and is
constantly promising satisfaction from yet another turning point
in the plot .Moving towards a perfect future yet continously living
in the past ,as every new experience gets rated only according to
what is in our memory ,yet how can any new experience be possible
without instantly questioning everything that ever came before it
.Speeches on such questions can be found in countless audiobooks
and before you get to play one ask yourself wheather what you are
about to learn comes from the words or from more time spent by a
working mind .All in all the question is this-do media players nowadays
still run on media or has our human lifetime already become the
thing that fuels them....
