For a week every year Linz becomes the most futuristic city in the world as Ars Electronica provides a fascinating fusion of art and science, an open meeting place for artists and cyber enthusiasts. The festival is a strange affair - a trade show for technological companies, a forum for international debate and a chance to see the cleverest art around.
The festival's driving aim has been to facilitate an encounter with our future as a strategy for dealing with the present. Hence the bizarre mêlée of scientific symposia and artworks.
