Computer Space
27.10 - 29.10.2011

Who hasn’t been enraptured by the fascinating visual effects and computer animation in Terminator, Jurassic Park, Ice Age or Toy Story? How many are those among us who can resist the power of attraction of computer games, the indulgence in the virtual reality of 3D simulators, the gaming in a network and becoming a part of a virtual community or the building up of an interesting strategy? Who hasn’t been impressed by the magical sounds of electronic music- in the Jean Michel Jarre’s concerts, in Vangelis’s music or in the more modern VJ shows? Isn’t it fantastic to see your friend on the Skype and to talk to him for free and as much time as you wish while in the same time he/she is at the other side of the world? Or isn’t it fantastic to “fly up” in the sky and then “land” in a town with Google Earth? All this is due to the computer arts and modern communications....
