The artists and art projects that are presented during this year´s festival, has in common that they explore man´s relations to our own nature and towards nature in general as a physical phenomena and place for enlightenment. They are genuinely occupied by the idea of man as a participant within a complex organic structure we don´t know the origin or the expansion of.Man has created new realities we can access through new technologies. How do we relate to a new nature we can see the contures of, but yet not can´t see the fully consequenses of?
