> Since the abundant proliferation of digital communication  
> technology, our
> (living) space has been expanded, transformed, reshaped. In our  
> everyday
> lives we increasingly connect to mediated interfaces, be it  
> consciously or
> without knowing.
> Digital media is increasingly integrated seamlessly into all areas of
> everyday life and work. The so-called ‘virtual worlds’ created in  
> this way
> are merging ever more dynamically with our physical environment  
> generating
> new hybrid spaces, becoming a fixed part of our reality themselves.
>
> Our cities are increasingly pervaded by data networks, watched over by
> cameras, skinned by media facades, populated by users of mobile
> communication devices carried around with every step. ‘City’ itself  
> has
> become a media space, a complex fabric, in which an immaterial layer  
> of data
> is augmenting the urban landscape, both merging ever more seamlessly.
>
> Radiator continues its investigation into the way that artists  
> engage with
> locality and site, real and virtual urban space. The ‘Wireless City’  
> brings
> deep cultural changes and our traditional spatial coordinates are  
> gradually
> being superseded by an enhanced network.
>
> Sharing their inferences and conclusions, artists are invited to  
> reflect
> upon the challenges facing our freedom, the poetry of resistance and  
> also
> the opportunities the ‘Expanded City’ has to offer.
>
>
> Radiator welcomes all forms of artistic expression aligned with the  
> theme.
> The programme will provide multiple exhibition and display  
> opportunities
