The Future is Now: Media Arts, Performance and Identity after Nam June Paik
In an era of reality television and the continual rise of the web, The Future is Now examines the legacy of Paik’s thinking and practice with a focus on performance and identity, situated within current debates around new technologies, ubiquity and human experience. Through innovative web adventures and conversations chaired by Dr. Sarah Cook, speakers and performers including collaborators of Paik, contemporary artists and theorists, consider how artists are constrained or liberated by a constant re-imagining of the future. Participants include Roy Ascott, Jeremy Bailey, Ruth Catlow, John Hanhardt, Kristin Lucas and Marisa Olson.
