In our everyday life we constantly have to cope more or
less successfully with interfaces. We use the mobile phone,
the mp3 player, and our laptop, in order to gain access to
the digital part of our life. In recent years this situation
has lead to the creation of new interdisciplinary subjects
like "Interaction Design" or "Physical Computing".

We live between two worlds, our physical environment and the
digital space. Technology and its digital space are our second
nature and the interfaces are our points of access to this

Since artists started working with technology they have been
developing interfaces and modes of interaction. The interface
itself became an artistic thematic.

The project INTERFACE and SOCIETY investigates how artists deal
with the transformation of our everyday life through technical
With the rapid technological development a thoroughly
critique of the interface towards society is necessary.

The role of the artist is thereby crucial. S/he has the freedom
to deal with technologies and interfaces beyond functionality
and usability. The project INTERFACE and SOCIETY is looking at
this development with a special focus on the artistic contribution.
