"Challenge, and not desire, lies at the heart of seduction."
-Jean Baudrillard
The Ecstasy of Communication

Technology is seductive. It begs us to touch it, to see it, to hear it, to experience all that it is. This is the foundation of the Electric Garden:

  • The challenge of invention.
  • The excitement of creation.
  • The seduction of technology.

The Electric Garden challenges the global community to present the most exciting emerging computer technologies created and developed by the world's foremost experts.

Researchers, artists, and developers from industry, education, and entertainment will come together to create a diverse interactive environment that will showcase the most exciting, most seductive interactive computer applications and interface designs.

Art and design will mix with advanced computer technology to introduce new ways of communicating, thinking, and living while providing a complete sensory experience for all SIGGRAPH 97 attendees.

The deadline for submitting proposals to the Electric Garden was 29 January 1997.
