Seven on Seven pairs seven leading artists with seven game-changing technologists in teams of two, and challenges them to develop something new --be it an application, social media, artwork, product, or whatever they imagine-- over the course of a single day.
Kristin Lucas creates video, installation, interventions, digital images, sculpture, and projects for the web. Positioning herself at the center of her projects, Lucas’ work addresses the effects of rapid-spread technology on the human condition. Reversing a popular concept of infusing humanity into machines she instead applies familiar strategies of electronic media to her own life. Transformations, mutations, and portraiture are the focus of works set to the backdrop of empty and meaningful exchanges with automated tellers, healing arts therapists, celebrity impersonators, police officers, and a judge.
