>  A group of internationally renowned media artists brings surreal, 
> poetic and thought-provoking installation environments to Manchester, 
> that invite you to explore the ways we now communicate with each other 
> and with technology.
> Yet the technical nature of the art works becomes invisible and 
> instead they challenge the audience to take part in interactive 
> scenarios, unexpected stories and impromptu visual dialogues. The 
> projects examine our life in media culture and a digitised society: by 
> linking the physical installation to the digital space and vice versa 
> - within extraordinary models of art and networking that encourage the 
> viewers' very own creative input.
