The future is inevitable. Information is everything and everything is information. Information spaces will expand and penetrate more and more our lives and our physical environments. As we have seen the electronic information displays inhabit our private and public spaces and ensure us that information’s place gets stronger than ever in our world. The exponential information growth is speeding up exponentially. By 2011, the digital universe will be 10 times the size it was in 2006.

Most of the information is unstructured leaving us with the growing necessity to look for ways how to cope with this new life form. As it grows through every aspect of human life our responsibility for our digital environments increases. Aim of the Public Web Based InfoArt Lab is to develop simple ways of displaying web based information to any kind of public spaces in order to generate critical awareness concerning the digital worlds.
