'end repeat' aims to reveal the boundary between the current status of
digital arts and the potential that awaits. The programme of events has
been selected to reveal the conditions necessary for terminating the
loop and progressing into new territories.

'end repeat's' main objective is to examine the loop. The uptake of
digital technology is pervasive across the many disciplines of both Arts
and Sciences. With uniformity in the hardware, operating systems and
software adopted, a common ground has emerged. This convergence presents =
ideal, although possibly temporary, opportunity for varied practitioners =
collaborate between disciplines. Behind this, an impetus to innovate is
motivating the need to exploit this potential to further benefit the
disciplines in and of themselves.

'end repeat' emphasises the state of over exploitation of visual sense (t=
screen) in digital arts. 'end repeat' is an invitation to investigate
interfaces other then the visual. Artists are invited to exploit the
'invisible' computer and produce work which uses communication innovative
