Ars Electronica 2007 - The panoramas

The panoramas from the 2007 event are now online.

One of the festival's main themes concentrated on "Second Life" and presented an interference of virtuality with reality. Unintentionally, the exhibitions in the "Mariengasse" and "Pfarrplatz" exposed some scurrility by taking place in a street struggling with abandonment and forsake - something you may be familiar with in Second Live...

Sound is still missing, unfortunately. No time to edit and add the snippets to the panoramas. I hope to catch up soon.
