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.
David Kravitz is a software engineer and one of the first developers behind the photo-messaging app Snapchat. He almost has a degree in computer science from Stanford University (just 3 credits left). When he's not working on Snapchat, you can find him playing jazz piano and writing comedy. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
Frances Stark is a Los Angeles-based artist working in multiple media – from works on paper to performance – examining "the conditions of creative labor," and highlighting the aspects of artistic production that are less frequently acknowledged. Stark's work has been exhibited extensively, including in solo shows at MoMA PS1 and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindoven, as well as notable group exhibitions such as the 2008 Whitney Biennial and the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. In 2011, she was also commissioned to create a new work for Performa 11. She received her M.F.A. in 1993 from Art Center College of Design.
