This article describes the 80's roots of the new economy and how the whiz kids are now starting to write their own history. We wrote this article while preparing the [d]vision 2001 festival electronic kindergarten which celebrated the computer technology from the 80ies and reflected the subcultures of computer users.

Reality Rulez! Die Bedeutung des Dokumentarischen in der visuellen Mediengestaltung im Kontext der Digitalisierung.

With my master thesis or "Diplomarbeit" I tried to explore how our understanding of the term documentary is changing in the context of an increasing diffusion of digital images and computer technology. I wanted to find out where we are going to locate the document, the evidence and the proof of "truth" in digital age.

I graduated with this master thesis from the University of Vienna in October 2002.
The thesis is written in german, but at least there is an english abstract available.
