Seven on Seven 5th Anniversary
May 3, 2014

Presented by Rhizome, the Seven on Seven conference pairs seven leading artists with seven influential technologists in teams of two, and challenges them to develop something new–whatever they choose to imagine—over the course of a single day.

Aza Raskin is an interface designer and the Vice President of Jawbone, a San Francisco-based company that creates and sells wearable technology and portable devices. Originally from California, Raskin gave his first talk on user interfaces at the age of 10. He is founder of the music streaming community Songza, and has developed various projects for the Mozilla Corporation. He holds a double degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Chicago. His other projects include Massive Health, Algorithm Ink and Bloxes, a cardboard furniture startup that was acquired by Amazon.

Kari Altmann is an artist focused on cultural technology, aggregation, and mistranslation as they relate to all mediums, from images to social networks to sculptures and back again. Her output often exists as new genres and microcultures, which she calls "startups" and "teams", and tracks through her own content management system as they move faster than art product or identity can keep up with. She is one of the most influential artists in the currently titled 'post-internet' canon. Recent features include a solo online exhibition, Soft Mobility Abstracts, for the New Museum, the Art Post Internet survey at Ullens Center in Beijing, and Brands: Concept, Affect, Modularity at Salts Center in Basel, for which her work was a starting point. She has done projects for and with Art Dubai, The Goethe Institute, The New Museum, Fade2Mind, Rhizome, The Hirshhorn Museum, Mixpak, Gentili Apri, Dis Magazine, Nero Magazine, and many more.
