[FISEA’93] Introduction: Roman Verostko — FISEA’93 “The Art Factor”, One More ISEA Success!

Introductory Statement

The Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), host for the Fourth International Symposium on Electronic Art (FISEA’93) provided a well orchestrated program which helped define more clearly the significance of this forum along with its strengths and weaknesses. Assessments show clearly that this annual forum is alive and well – and its promise for the future is assured! The theme of this year’s symposium, “the art factor”, provided a cohesive thread connecting eight exhibition and performance venues and a wide range of presentations in the form of papers, panels, projects and applications. But it was the interaction with presenters, exhibits, and each other that spelled important experiences for individual attendees. Roman Verostko, Program Director, notes that he and his program committee continue to receive messages from delegates around the world with warm thanks and congratulations to MCAD for the ambience and rewards of the symposium experience.

SCOPE. Representing 20 countries and 31 states a total of more than 400 delegates and exhibitors contributed to the success of FISEA 93 held in Minneapolis from November 3 to 71 1993.
