The production and presentation of media art takes place in a hybrid economy involving diverse technical and social platforms as well as a variety of institutional contexts – art museums, film festivals, science & technology centres, universities and media art organisations. It can be said that media art's potential for both digital innovations and critical interventions arises from a practice which cuts across established categories of culture and technology. However this activity can also result in a precarious position for the artist, who may feel trapped between the worlds. In this conference we hope to share expertise on how to develop projects, reach audiences and sustain practices across the many media art worlds.
