There is a need for artists, who are at the head of new media culture, processes and technologies; who have the skills and abilities to flexibly and creatively react to sudden changes; who participate in creating and researching new products and processes. New media art is multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary, within which creation of art works involves new technologies, and new art environments are created for communication and interaction.
