Mediation/Medialization Congress

[WRO2000@kultura] [Meridian 17] [Mediation/Medialization] [List of Participants]

Mediation/Medialization Congress
Dimensions of the Media Revolution
29th November - 3th December 2000

Mediation is an aspect of technology that is extending the universe of perception. Mediation is leading us into new areas, introducing new worlds, extending our horizons by taking us into prior inaccessible spaces. Mediation broadens our environment, opens communication and enhances our habitat. Medialization is the functional and conceptual reinterpretation of the reality through the use of technology in areas which used to be experienced directly, without technology. Technology does change the world that we know; it affects structures already established through our historic experience, it transforms the existing biological, physical, cultural and economic parameters of human existence. Medialization interferes with our established value systems, forces their reinterpretation, creates anxiety, and makes the environment creative, dynamic and unstable.
