Respondent: Elizabeth Sultzer (Student) and Susan Bee (SVA Faculty)
Through artists and writers such as Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Micha Cárdenas and Noam Chomsky, as well as panelists’ own work, this discussion will explore the mediation of various realities and its impact on concrete experience. The limina of digital and real, center and margin, and public and private are central currents that run through the individual projects, and will be the focus of discourse.
