So what exactly is the Boston Cyberarts Festival?

"Cyberart can be anything from an examination of complex ideas about the nature of reality to sheer unadulterated fun – and if you're lucky, both at the same time."
- BBC, 2005 

"The convergence of the old and the new turns out to be the most fascinating dimension of the Boston Cyberarts Festival. While I was expecting to see lots of newfangled electronic novelties, what surprised and intrigued me was how much of what I saw revolved around some of the oldest and most traditional ideas and aspirations in the history of art."
- Boston Globe, 2007

"The presence of so much experimental work in and around Boston might surprise those who view the city as a bastion of cultural conservatism, but it reflects a long local history blending art and science. …"
- New York Times, 1999

"Look closely at many of the projects and you'll see a start-up technology on a shakedown cruise." - Boston Globe, Business Intelligence column, 2003

"Even after eight years, the Festival can still delight and inspire …"
- Big Red & Shiny, 2007

"Young and cool, middle-aged and hip, plugged-in, free-spirited, garbed in the many varieties of geek chic and la mode Bohemian, the demographic was the sort many conventional music organizations would kill for."
- Boston Globe, 2001

"The biannual Boston Cyberarts Festival …. has a vibrancy that the [New York Digital] salon sorely lacks."
- New York Times, 2003

"The art in cyberart is finding its own footing, giving viewers and participants opportunities not only for the ‘oooh-aah' of the unexpected but for the entire array of experiences we derive from art."
- Boston Phoenix, 2001

"The vision required to yank something out of its traditional context and turn it on its head."
- ArtByte Magazine, 2001

"The most thrilling dance work this reviewer has seen in recent memory."
- Boston Globe, 2006

"Creepy and awesome."
- The New York Times, 2005

"The hot ticket for techies!"
- Where Magazine, 2005

"It's the festival at which to nourish your inner geek."
- Six New Things, 2007
