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

outsiders; and processes of taking flight from the gravity of digital
capitalism, digital privilege, and stratification.
