Resonating Selves // Interface Cultures at Ars Electronica Festival 2023

Resonating Selves is part of the Ars Electronica Festival 2023
6th-10th of September 2023, at Postcity Linz

In an era where truth is increasingly elusive and subjective, the latest Interface Cultures student exhibition “Resonating Selves” presents a captivating exploration of how our identities resonate and interact with the world around us. The fusion of technology and artistic expression enables a deeper understanding of the interplay between the digital and physical realms. Through the lens of media art, these artists probe the complexities of truth ownership and its influence on our sense of self.

The convergence of technology, particularly Artificial Intelligence, plays a pivotal role in this context. AI, with its capacity to analyse and generate information, becomes a powerful tool for questioning truth and exposing the multifaceted layers of our identities. “Resonating Selves” within the context of the Ars Electronica Festival 2023 amplifies the festival’s overarching theme of “Who Owns the Truth?”

The exhibition acts as a catalyst for introspection, fostering dialogue on the intricacies of truth in our increasingly mediated and interconnected world. Each of the projects presented in this exhibition push the boundaries of our perception, inviting viewers to critically examine the dynamic relationship between human subjectivity and the objective reality we seek to comprehend. From interactive installations to immersive experiences, each artwork engages visitors in a profound exploration of personal truths and collective narratives.

As visitors engage with the artworks, they become active participants in an ongoing dialogue about truth ownership and the construction of selfhood. By navigating these immersive experiences, audiences are encouraged to question their own preconceptions, biases, and societal influences.

Join us on this captivating journey as we navigate the enigmatic territory of truth, technology, and the resonance of our multifaceted selves. Explore the boundless possibilities of media art and experience the profound impact of AI as it shapes our perceptions of truth, identity, and the complex narratives that intertwine them.
