were and are always inextricably intertwined. There is no Art without Science,
but there is no scientific endeavour without the art of science. It is necessary to develop both sides of the
the rational and the emotional. Otherwise, if we develop only one side, the other will suffer from underusage, and finally 'run dry'.
Based on these premises, the Grid Vision Site Design Philosophy does on
purpose not follow the 'classical' web design principles. Our Vision is to promote the

It is our Vision that through the creative, and specifically
usage of the full possibilities of new media and new artistic expression the
full range of interest of the general public can be attained.
In this sense, the Grid Vision site, being a kind of 'Interactive Grid (Tele-)Vision' is not primarily visually intended for the Computor Scientists and Computor Enthusiasts, who are well versed in many of the areas herein explained, but for people who still, although using the World Wide Web, have a certain negative attitude towards Computers.
Based on these premises, the Mission of the Grid Vision is to be:
- A site for general public, to raise public awareness of e-Science, and its inherent possibilities.
- A site for specialists, as a reference collection of e-Science and Grid knowledge.
The backgrounds of the Grid Vision pages are extremely colourfull. This is on purpose, as it is known that colour has a direct influence on the human perception (ref. e.g.
The almost shocking first impression is actually opening the perception channels, and enables the person to perceive the given information in a new and fresh way.
This same applies to the Films presented on Grid Vision, where the more or less intensive 'un-commonness' of the directing and visual style enables a more open perception of the underlying message.
In this sense we hope that the Art and the Science on
