Such Digital Art is no longer an avantgarde field, but has become an integral part of our present-day Digital Culture, and re-new 2009 focus on the actual, practical, and artistic usages that people make of the latest technological novelties and scientific ponderings.

The re-new digital arts forum sees media technologies as socio-cultural techniques and embrace them in order to comprehend, comment, and contribute to the shaping of contemporary society.

Works in all genres and categories in multimedia related art forms where digital technologies are an unseparable part are inside the scope of re-new: those works that challenge or expand the current vocabulary and practice of digital creation, performance, and consumption.
