Description: In 2006 the "Art+Communication" festival, organised by RIXC in Riga, celebrated its 10th anniversary and the 8th edition. For the first time the festival was conceived as a large-scale “WAVES” exhibition that looked at electromagnetic waves as material and medium of art.
The WAVES exhibition brought together 40 international works of (media) art by 70 artists from 18 countries around the world, in which electromagnetic waves were seen not just as carriers of information, but as the material and/or theme of the artwork.
The exhibition was complemented by the festival programme, consisting of a conference, open presentations, workshops, a performance programme and film screenings of classic and contemporary experimental movies.
