the onlining for you. SAVE / SAFE is designed for PC / IE 6.0 only.

theme & concept:

* The cultural container representing itself to society today and going to
reign the 21st century ... is characterized by substitutional relations
based on the central involvement with information technology, pursued from
a position of pseudo-autism ... With the decay of inter-personal culture
and the expansion of IT-controlled substitutes of inter-relation only one
mass container is left for and generally accepted by a borderlining
majority: the unavoidable search for the ego and for techniques allowing
the construction of identity. *

* J. Erik Mertz, in: Borderline - weder tot noch lebendig, 2000

In January 2003, SAVE / SAFE started from a research of human
states-of-being related to the impact of New Technologies on the perception
and self-consciousness of individual existence. Using the atmosphaeric
background of a journey to Oceania - a context of highly social municipal
communities still existing on many of the geographically isolated
Polynesian islands and a westernized New Zealand having integrated all
attitudes of 'modern' life - SAVE / SAFE compares Anna's individual
experience to results of the scientific research of philosophy, psychology,
ethics, sociology and new media theory.

Since then, a contemporary variety of aspects on the theme have been added
by artists / authors from different countries, thus turning the SAVE / SAFE
automat more and more into what it intends to be - a mirror - through a
spectrum of different views the structure of the reading machine SAVE /
SAFE turns into a mirror of contemporary conditioning, thus provoking the
user to consciously read without reading, understand without analyzing,
experience without touching.
