In Feb 2006, we created the first ambient.lounge as part of our VBI (Voluptuously Blinking Eye) lab at this year's Rotterdam Film Festival. There's a 10min documentation video for download online here...

about the exhibition

'As the first exhibition since the reopening of ICC, this show raises—from the horizons of art and programming—practical alternative possibilities of various phases of communication that we currently see around us. This exhibition features artwork and projects that take a unique step into contemporary networks, politics, economies, physiology, or urban environments by manipulating sound, games, the Internet, or other media as well as foreseeing artwork created in the past.' Yukiko Shikata, curator 

Connecting Worlds opens at the NTT InterCommunication Center on 15th of Sept until 26th of Nov 2006.
