This catalogue is published on the occasion of the thematic exhibition and symposium entitled 'Code: Blue: Confluence of Currents' as part of 'The Millennium Dialogue 2006: 3rd Beijing International New Media Art Exhibition and Symposium'. 'Code: Blue' is an international exhibition, which comprises works by established and emerging media artists, each giving his/her own insightful approach to the broad thematic structure, rendering a diversity of interpretations and raising issues imminent and critical to the fluctuating social, cultural and economic circumstances across the world. A subset of the 'Code: Blue' is programmed as "Container Culture", in which a body of projects are created by Chinese new media artists using shipping container as a metaphor as well as transporting vehicle. Inspired by "blue" as transparency, emergence, openness and transcendence, the symposium examines the increasingly interconnected global flux of information in social and technological networks, reflects on the remapping and reconfiguration of cultural landscapes under the new geopolitical and geo-economical constellation of the 21st century. Images of works are accompanied by descriptive passages. With artist biographies.
