Artists, Technologies, Organisations and Competitions

There is a wide gap between artists that utilise technology as a medium for expression and technologists who use art as a medium for communication, and then there are the corporations that use art as a cool front..
Mind the gap - watch out for academic arscience, hidden agendas and the Emperors New Clothes..
