SURFING ON ELECTRONIC SURFACES
15 YEARS OF ARS ELECTRONICA


Station Rose, 1994

Station Rose, a multimedia artist group, displays Ars Electronica's activities of the past fifteen years on this CD-ROM. It is an interactive database with 600 mbites of information, a catalogue presented by multimedia tools. This wide range of activity is centered, as if in an encyclopedia, around the three themes of society, technology, and the arts, which again are divided into other subthemes, eg. multimedia, music, cyberspace, performance, television, installation, mind children, robotics, and techno-culture. The user does not have to go through all, of course, he is free to make his own choice from the various themes, genres, and artists. Surfaces are attractive, interesting, and easy to handle; images in an image (accompanied with music), that is, each surface is composed of windows of a graphic or photographic image, a video, a text, and the icons through which one moves back and forth. Video shows a bit of each artist's activity. We are also offered an overview of the contents of the annual catalogues published by Ars Electronica, what is more, we can read the most important texts.
