Virtual Balance

Virtual Balance


Digital media make it possible to use virtual technology to reconstruct buildings that have long since disappeared, design and explore digital knowledge spaces using innovative interfaces, integrate remote or digital rooms in museums and exhibitions and develop new play-based, interactive communication strategies., the Internet platform for digital art and culture, is planning to show examples of these different
approaches. The aim is to provide an overview of the
different strategies, from purely digital spaces (Internet, VR, CD-ROM, DVD) through to AR and mixed-reality scenarios and media concepts that are based in or take a subordinate role to physical space.

This overview should show:
- how digital media are used to communicate cultural
- what new possibilities are being developed with digital media in order to present cultural artefacts in a
media-based way
- how digital technologies complement the work of the
curator. is an online archive for digital art and
culture that presents current media-art, media-design and IT-research projects. is being developed at MARS-Exploratory Media Lab of the Fraunhofer Institute for Media Communication under the direction of Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss.
