Short description: Lines of Flight addresses the following themes:
the lines between technological, scientific and artistic practices
from differing cultural perspectives; the negotiated status of the
(networked) artist as an agent interacting and transacting in a
global context; the flight from the self in collective creativity;
spatial mediation suggested by open, interactive, and real time
systems; mediation between inclusions and exclusions, insiders and
outsiders; and processes of taking flight from the gravity of digital
capitalism, digital privilege, and stratification.
