Creative and technological practices including visual and software art, science and design projects, moving image, experimental music and performance are featured in various scales and stages of development ranging from documentation of prototypes and exploratory installations to fully operational systems.
In 2003 there were 128 submissions featured in Machinista plus offline events in Moscow and Perm in the Urals.
Submissions for the following three themes are welcomed in all media.
1. "Art from the Machine: gleams of the inhuman"
Works created completely or mostly by a machine or an artificial intelligence system.
2. "Artists Against Machinic Standards"
Breaking, destroying, hacking, unexpected (non-utilitarian?) usage of customary programs as an art experiment.
3. "Full-Screen Robovision"
