1. transmediale.02 - Media Lounge

 The Media Lounge of transmediale.02 presents a choice of international art
works in the lobby of Haus der Kulturen der Welt. Designed as a lounge the
location serves as a meeting point where every project can be looked at
convienently. Largely projected ambient video and ambient music create an
appealing environment inviting it's guests to stay until midnight.

 The exhibited projects include software art, web movies, non-linear
images, interactive sound-machines und web projects illustrating the
festival's motto 'go public!'. The festival's video works are available on
demand. Also every shortlisted piece for the transmediale award in the
category "Image" is accessible on video terminals.

Opening February 5th 19.00 h,
open daily (February 6-10th) 10.00 - 24.00 h,
admission free.

2. Lifetime For Sale

 "Shop Mandiberg" is an ecommerce-website selling Michael Mandiberg's (US)
entire personal property: the artist's underwear, his credit card, even
part of his lifetime. Even more aggressively, Tatjana Doroshenko's (AU)
"Shot" reveals the underside of internet commerce. The cinematic narration
of a drug-addict prostitute trading her daily dose for a night in front of
the camera's eye uses website-like images.

 "Korsakow Syndrom" by Florian Thalhofer (DE) focusses on the cultural
history of alcoholism. The non-linear documentary consists of 150 short
takes that can be correlated in multiple, non-linear ways. Meet your
challenge in finding a path through time and space with
"leben.gebrauchsanweisung" by Schelberg/Gathmann/Coers (DE) which consists
of 99 rooms in a virtual tenement in Paris within a lapse of 100 years.

3. Design Your Environment

 Mark Napier's (US) website "net.flag" uses the large pool of international
flag designs as a base for the creation of your own fantasy ensign exposing
nationalism as outdated. "Vectorama.org" by Lehni/Lehni/Koch (CH) is a
graphical playground suppling up to ten users simultaneously with designing
tools for a visual chat.

 A red drop, "Roter Tropfen", is deforming itself permanently but can be
transformed into it's primary condition by mouse click. Simon Schliessls
(CH) minimalistic work seduces the user to meditate in front of the screen.
Janoschek/Schloemer (DE) present "Actionist Response": a flash animated
sound generator serves as a tool for deconstructing an electronic
composition by Mouse on Mars.
