Ars Electronica 2018 INTERVIEW
I reviewed about Ars Electronica 2018 and interviewed four artists.
The world's largest media art festival "Ars Electronica Festival" was held in Linz, Austria from September 6, 2018 (Thursday) on the 10th. More than 600 events are held this year on the theme of “ERROR – THE ART OF IMPERFECTION”and  approximately 105,000 visitors was recorded.
「At what point does an error become a mistake, a fail, and what makes it the celebrated source of unprecedented ideas and inventions?
When is an error an oversight and when is it intentional deception, a fake?
An error is a discrepancy from what we expect, a deviation from the norm … but what is the norm and who establishes it? An error doesn’t have to be a mistake; it can be an opportunity!」
Artistic director Gerfried Stocker (Gerfried Stocker) has made this statement for the 2018 theme "ERROR – THE ART OF IMPERFECTION".
This year, more than 1,300 pairs of artists, scientists, technologists, entrepreneurs and activists from 54 countries participated in exhibitions, workshops, performances and talk conferences. In this review, I introduce four artists from the whole.
