transmediale celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2012, and as always it's a fascinating look at the weird and wonderful world of digital art.

Dare I say I'm looking forward to February? Berlin does its best to cheer everybody up in that short dark month, perhaps as a reward for getting through January.
