Device art as a project was initiated independently and serendipitously
in Japan and Croatia in 2004, sharing the name but differing in concept.
The audience will have the chance to compare these two approaches at the
exhibition in Tokyo Miraikan Museum, during the performances in
SuperDeluxe and by participating in the round table discussion with the
artists and the curators of both projects about the relationship between
art, technology and culture, regarding art practice and experience in each
cultural context.

Croatian Device_art is a triennial international exhibition initiated by
the curatorial team KONTEJNER from Zagreb, and organized
in collaboration with Slovenian curator Sandra Sajovic. The first
Device_art in 2004 (http://www.kontejner.org/device-art-2004-english)
sought to explore projects at the intersection of art, technology
and science in Croatia and Slovenia. The exhibition sought
to position the work not so much as a high-tech artform
but rather the result of those creative tendencies that by their very
nature were located on the borders of art-design, gadget-hack, etc.
>From conceptual provocations and innovative
interfaces to utilitarian products and toy-hacking, the wide range
of projects seemed to help explain our relationship to technology and
technology’s relationship to art. The next exhibition in 2006
(http://www.kontejner.org/device-art-2006-english)
continued with presenting the regional scene (now with the addition
of Serbian production), however this time juxtaposed with
the vigorous Californian machine/robotic and maker-art scene.
The festival took place in Zagreb, Ljubljana, Belgrade and San Francisco.
Device_art 3 in 2009 (http://www.kontejner.org/device-art-3009-english)
contrasted that of Croatian and Slovenian works with the Japanese
Device Art scene along with projects by young artists studying at IAMAS.

This new version, Device_art 3.010 includes a selection of
projects by artists practicing in Croatia, Slovenia and Japan, including
many presented in previous Device_art exhibitions. The projects included
often emphasize a more conceptual approach, rather than machine- or
design-oriented. The tendency of hacking and re-using technology is
emphasized as well as the humorous, ironic and even absurd
characteristics of the works on display.
