Last month, you read Filipino artist Fatima Lasay's pre-cursor to 'Geo|centr|e|i|city - The Earth as Center' Simply click our image of the month

Here, we officially launch her exhibition, Lasay & fAf's endeavour to put the spotlight on Philippine digital artists, seismologists and scientists reiterating the inseparability and interdependence of technology and the arts.

The ideas, dialogues and messages of the process and works produced inevitably look into the understanding and direction of cultural exchange via the Internet.

The ever-diligent Lasay explains: "A lot of people don't understand or appreciate net art or even research-focused art or collaborative art that takes on sciences and other fields - even among the digital artists themselves."

Also in this issue, regular contributor Mez Breeze's feature: 'Non Compos Mentis: Zen-Tripping the Non-Conference Circuitry'. Ngee Ann Polytechnic's Tristan Chan offers insight into Singapore's censorship debate.

And Ni Kee Seah reviews 'ART>MUSIC: Rock, pop, techno' at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sally Draper looks at 'The Unknown City: Contesting Architecture and Social Space' and Felicity Carpenter focuses on Icepick.com.
