    Whether the internet, the networked homeland of our culture and digital place for exchange and memory, will help us bridge the gaps between us all – resulting from the flow of money, advantages in information and human vanities – remains to be seen. In the digital realms parasitic relations seem to be expanding even further; we have to take this into account and influence the ongoing changes in a reasonable manner.

    As the openness of the internet provokes new ways of participation, the resulting mixture of existing forms, in which we record and describe our common reality, represents an ever increasing challenge. Where technological progress and spare time breed a mass of data, the organization of this quantity, its classification and hierarchisation, is the next step.

    As energies are progressively set free, the fact that we are all part of a large stream is entering our collective consciousness. As describing and changing a present situation through an act of creativity, is mostly based on reprocessing and constantly re-sorting former ideas, the need for access to these views becomes evident. Presently these ideas, in science and art, economy and politics just like in any other field, are undergoing a systematic unification, which will help future generations to better investigate and understand our world.

    In all ranges of human interaction, the internet multiplies the ways of perceiving and describing our world, undermining former barriers. Within the scope of an artistic form of communication for instance, the internet may erase the division of the entertainment industry and the art world. – Alec Crichton
