Simplicity panel at Ars Electronica

On September 2 and 3, I was at the 2006 Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria. I took part in a symposium along with Olga Goriunova and Jason Kottke on simplicity organized by John Maeda. John asked us to bring images that make us think seriously (or lightly) about simplicity / complexity? We mixed them up and looked them together with the audience.

We had the simplicity panel in St.Florian, very old christian complex, it was a kind of a visit to past – Jeevan Kalanithi‘s one of the laws of simplicity. I saw priests contemplating here, singing those heavenly songs to some Ars Electronica audience. I don’t know what this has to do with simplicity.
