A proverb tells us that ”the grass is always greener on the other side”, reminding
us that distant locations always appear greater than they are when seen from afar.
But where is this other side in the 21st century?

When traveling physically, one often cannot escape the feeling that places are
becoming more similar, more commodified, more corporate-ruled. The omnipresent
digital medium video travels via internet around the globe and stimulates
international dialogue across borders like no other visual medium at the moment. A
new generation of video artists speaks up:
