Continuing in the tradition of free online distribution of netart in the 90s, Arcs21 offers the user the possibilities of research, playing and co-creation: browserspace is translated into a realtime artwork which is freely available over the internet, without restrictions and without any imposed newsletters.

The works of LIA are generally of abstract nature. Structures are offered to the user, where she is able to involve herself in their emergence and decline. The basis for these structures is a certain idea about a specific principle which is offered to the user in a quasi-encrypted form. The user can decrypt and carry forward this structure individually into his/her own world of ideas, and maybe even recognize it in completely different contexts.

The idea behind the work is offered to the user in a poetic and playful way, as an avenue for personal research, enabling further thought in his/her own way. Emotions, memories, questions and flashes of inspiration are welcome results.
