This project consists of natural ecosystems isolated inside sealed containers that only allow the external influence of heat and light. The objective is to collaborate actively on raising awareness about the fragility of our planet and the importance and urgency of its care. With the concept that ¨the world is not for sale¨, the small biosphere adoption program was born; small worlds that represent our planet on an infinitesimal scale.

“Balance-Unbalance: The Future started Now” is the second encounter in a series of roundtables gathering scientists, artists, architects and curators to help us think about what we should do today to change course and to have a possible future, considering the serious risks we face given the growing environmental crisis.

Die diesjährige Themenkonferenz geht der Frage nach, wie das Internet unserer kollektiven Freiheit und der ökologischen Nachhaltigkeit dienen sollte. Branch Magazine, Gewinner des erstmals vergebenen Ars Electronica Award for Digital Humanity, bietet vier Panels zu den Themen Klimagerechtigkeit, „Solarpunk“, nachhaltige Digitalisierung, Solidarität sowie kohlenstoffarmes Design und Bildung.

Diese Podiumsdiskussion wird die Auswirkungen des Internets auf Bildungsmodelle zum Klimawandel untersuchen. Von offenen Ressourcen über Online-Schulungen bis hin zu über soziale Medien vermittelbaren Informationen – das Internet hat die Art und Weise, wie universelle und effektive Bildungsmodelle aussehen, völlig verändert.
Host: Christine Lariviere (CA) Climate Communications; Speakers: Luiza Prado (BR), artist, writer, and researcher, Sarah Friend (CA) artist and software developer, Jay Springett (UK) strategist and writer
Welche Art von Geschichten sollten wir im Zusammenhang mit einer durch den Klimawandel veränderten Welt erzählen, und welche Rolle spielen Technologie und Internet in dieser Erzählung?
The way we, as humans, participate in the vibrational fields and flows of energy of the Planet Earth is embodied practice, even if the process often remains somewhat mysterious, unnoticed or unacknowledged. This workshop will explore how a human vocalization, which is nothing else than amplified and conscious breathing, can become a practice of inquiry into the planetary water cycle.

The first workshop (facilitated by Michael Kneidl) of this series is dedicated to disruptive life prototyping. The participants will experiment with existing tools and new technologies, de-construct and redesign them to accomplish new tasks for them. In the second workshop of this series, “Mapping the (Im)possibility of Change”, Magdalena Haidacher and Margarita Köhl will explore the ways of thinking and practicing sustainable development beyond an all-pervading logic of growth together with the participants. Additionally, impactful projects created by InterMedia BA and MA students at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences will be featured in the frame of an online exhibition.

In dieser Inspiration Session für Lehrer*innen und Erzieher*innen können Sie an dem von Michaela Schober und L. Vanessa Gruber entwickelten Online-Workshop teilnehmen, der derzeit im Rahmen der create your world TOUR in Schulklassen durchgeführt wird. Warum fordert Social Media auf, die eigene Geschichte zu erzählen? Was hat es dabei mit Storytelling auf sich und wie funktioniert das überhaupt? Wie kann man sich Gehör verschaffen? Und: Wie hängt das mit Klimaschutz zusammen?

The contributions of the ecosphere shed light on the consequences of the digitalization of our ecosystem, knowledge generated by a shift in perspective away from humans and towards other life forms, and the opportunities for “peaceful co-existence” and cooperation between species.

Researchers and artists will collaborate to return open data in the form of music, images and words, through the use of AI algorithms, to offer a highly perceptive, visual and sound return of the effect that pollution and development, understood as pressure anthropogenic, have on wind, rain and the environment.
Since 2015, Joel Ong has been collecting sonic memories through interviews and casual conversations. As part of his Residency with UCLA this summer, Ong turned his attention to sonic memories in the environment, and is collecting these in order to draw attention to fluctuations in the climate observed and remembered through the inter-subjectivities of a diverse group of interviewees.

Klimawandel, Migration und digitale Transformation: Wir alle stehen vor großen Herausforderungen – und einfache Lösungen für die großen Probleme der Welt gibt es nicht. Der technologische Fortschritt in unserer Gesellschaft muss daher ganz im Interesse des Planeten und der Menschlichkeit stehen.

What is ‘green’? Are we ‘green’? And is it the vegetative world at all? With monumental biotechnical installations, olfactory portraits of trees and the chemical re-enactment of historical toxic pigments, this garden proposed by Muffathalle Munich, curated by Jens Hauser, fosters debates in climate politics in the field of tension between art, nature and science.
An Art & Science Symposium
What is ‘green’? Are we ‘green’? And is it the vegetative world at all? Are algae ‘superfoods’, environmental pests – or both? Is biodiesel green? Beyond the rampant ‘greenwashing’ of our times, artists and scientists in this symposium get to the bottom of the increasingly uncritically accepted symbolism of ‘green’ – as a RE-mix and RE-evaluation of contradictions and paradoxes.

The information and surveillance society, climate change, human rights issues… Artists are addressing social questions in an artistic way and asking us questions in the form of their artworks. It can be called artistic journalism. In this tour, we will take a look at some of the prize-winning works from the Prix Ars Electronica 2021 that address journalism from an artistic perspective and method, and talk to the artists about their work.

In September 2021, Linz is joining the Leonardo Art & Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) network. This international program brings together artists, scientists, scholars and the general public for inspiring presentations and conversations. The LEONARDO LASER LINZ, hosted by the Interface Cultures department at the University of Art and Design Linz, will be held during the Ars Electronica 2021 Festival.

Agriculture requires innovations to increase both quantity and quality in production, but also to increase efficiency in resource management. This year Ars Electronica in collaboration with LCM organizes a foresight technology Hackathon training which addresses challenges of the Agri-food industry to be faced by the world, global trends in specific sectors of the Agro industry, prospects for their development.

During the last years, the discourses around the loss of biodiversity and more sustainable production and consumption models have advanced widely in the fields of natural sciences, social sciences and new technologies. How can we change this and co-create a more sustainable future?

The Campus Cartographies are an exploration of plant diversity in and around the Kepler Gardens taking place during this year’s Ars Electronica Festival in the framework of Roots & Seeds XXI. Together with host Veronika Krenn, the participants dive into one aspect that has a critical impact on our plant life: the soil that is its basis for growth.
Claudia Schnugg (AT)
During the Roots & Seeds XXI workshops, participants from different fields (artists, scientists, philosophers, researchers, curators, cultural agents, and others), whose practices are linked to the plant world in different ways, will analyze the crisis of biodiversity with the intention of proposing sustainable ways of relating to nature. Through these workshops, Roots & Seeds XXI seeks to safeguard and promote botanical heritage, weaving scientific knowledge with storytelling and humanities.
Sustainable Futures & New Pathways to Innovation is an interactive online experience that explores three concrete challenges tackled by artists who have participated in S+T+ARTS across three thematic areas: Tangible Data, Sustainable Futures and Navigating the Digital Realm.
Can our conscious listening effect the world around us? That unseen vibrance. These are dense vibrations, larger than our bodies, larger than our eardrums. They work through us. They present as oceanic. I have a sense of being inside the sound, submerged in another medium, molten, or perhaps growing wings. Of enormous pressure depth yet vibrance shimmer. To dive into the oceanic with our own airborne sounds, feet on the ground, ears underwater. What animal could hear like this?

DNA is capable of storing digital data better than silicon in our computers. It fits millions of terabytes in a few grams suspension in the water, minimizing the ecological cost of the global network of digital databases. The binary code only needs to be decoded into the synthesized DNA strands.
