LifeScience, ein Begriff, der fur weite Wissenschaftsbereiche der Bio- und Gentechnologie verwendet wird, druckt in seiner Ubersetzung "Wissenschaft vom Leben" sehr deutlich fundamentale Verbindungen zu kulturellen und philosophischen Fragestellungen aus. LifeScience - Ars Electronica 99 lenkt den Blick auf das aktuelle Szenario der Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft rund um die Gene. Kunstler und Wissenschaftler diskutieren neue Konfliktpotentiale, die im Bereich der Life Sciences an der Schnittstelle von Technologie und Gesellschaft entstehen. Speziell die Gentechnologie ist heute grobter Hoffnungstrager - und gleichzeitig einer der kontroversesten Forschungsbereiche. Auf den Errungenschaften der digitalen Informationstechnologie aufbauend, steuern Bio- und Gentechnologie auf eine Neudefinition unserer Zukunft zu. An der Schwelle zum Jahr 2000 fokussiert Ars Electronica die Zukunftstechnologien der kommenden Dekaden. The very term life science, applied nowadays to wide areas of research in the fields of biotechnology and genetic engineering, clearly expresses its fundamental link with questions of a cultural and philosophic nature.

LifeScience - Ars Electronica 99 draws attention to the scientific and economic effects of genetic engineering. Artists and scientists discuss the potential conflicts within the life sciences arising at the point where technology and society converge. Great hopes are being pinned on genetic engineering, but it is, at the same time, one of the most controversial branches of research. Based on the achievements of digital information technology, biotechnology and genetic engineering are pointing towards a new definition of the future. On the threshold of a new century, Ars Electronica focuses attention on the new technologies of the coming decades.
