Expanded City

Expanded cinema - Gene Youngblood's term from 1970 - was coined as a  
name for new forms of artistic experimentation with the language of  
film. But the term's underlying concept of synesthetic cinema  
combining esthetic sensitivity with technological innovation is also  
relevant to transformations in art arising from the infusion of new  
tools and the exploration of new views of perception.

According to Youngblood, the new cinema medium - expanding beyond the  
limitations of the genre and foreshadowing the technological and  
esthetic diversification of contemporary art - became the most  
appropriate language for the post-industrial, post-literate, post- 
mass environment with its multi-dimensional simulsensory network of  
information sources.

The Expanded city extends the concept of expanded media: The city  
becomes a metaphor for shared space for exchange and communication,  
expanding and diversifying through new technologies.

What does new media art contribute to this shared communication  
space? Is it mere commentary or does it offer new solutions? How does  
it define that space by exploring its dimensions? How is the city  
shaped by the appearance of new programmed and programmable agoras?  
How does contemporary art influence the concept, the substance and  
the image of a city?
