22C3: Technological art off the trodden tracks 0

Quite fine talk. Régine Débatty (Weblog, read it!) and Jussi Ängeslevä are currently talking about »Technological art off the trodden tracks«. They’re focusing on the use of »bad« techniques, e.g. RFID-tags, CCTVs and so on, for funny and artistic issues. There thesis are to combine hacking and artistical work.
A good idea, as I think (nevertheless I want to abolish arts) to combine different kinds of »hacking«. Use hacking as a term for creative work on and with different techniques. Constructing a gap between hacking and arts is quite synthetic or do you really argue that all the thing the hackers are doing makes sense?
