'I am not a digital artist, I am a' is the open-ended theme of the fourth edition of OFFF, a meeting, melting of, 'experimental audio and unusual video'. Over the first three days of July in Valencia, Spain an international mix will meet to fill in the blank of the theme, or more likely, to realize there can be no one definition in the digi-world. Conference presentations extend from urban art trends to CSS-XHTML standards. The Mercadilo marketplace offers a swapmeet of ideas and products, while the Open Room presents work that utilize, as medium for production or inspiration, digital technology. In the Machina works from the Film Festival can be seen in the format they were meant to be. The melange includes the UK's luv2.tv questioning the responsibilities of today's digital artists, Manila's Inksurge and a retrospective of 'Once upon a forest', the work of Joshua Davis, winner of the 2001 Prix Ars Electronica. If you can't get to the Mediterranean, just the website can take you on a trip. - Bronwyn Mahoney
