Educators Paper

The arts and technology are no longer strangers. They are forging a closer partnership, as the arts reveal what could previously exist only in our imaginations by utilizing ubiquitous technology, and technology, in turn, leaps over the modern era by adding a wing of artistic sensibility to science.

In light of this shift, isAT 2007 (International Symposium for Arts and Technology 2007) was held last year to explore the "Lightning Effects" from the encounter between the arts and technology. Under the theme of Shift to the Third Space, the upcoming event, isAT 2008, will seek the meaning of the union of the arts and technology and explore how ubiquitous computing technology shifts our lives into other dimensions.
