The rapid development of digital media is a challenge to the field of art. Yet, artistic working and representational forms have found a niche where virtual data space is inseparable from the real physical environment. "Live media art" integrates media art into the theatre environment, i.e., the live-art tradition. The First Play Berlin festival has invited internationally renowned media artists and pioneers of live media art to explore these artistic environments in five projects which depict the changes in our lives in the digital age.
