The project “Back to Now” was inspired by the book “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle.

The project investigates the relationship between culturality and ever growing technological development in an international discourse through interdisciplinary field of art, science and technology. The segments of the project, the exhibition, panel/discussion and presentation encompass multimedia artwork, from traditional media such as drawing to interactive artworks which connect art, science and technology or new media. The participants of the project are artists coming from Japan, China, Turkey, Spain and Serbia.
