06.2016The Internet Bedroom, Print Screen Festival, Holon, Israel + online

Let's have a sleepover on the Internet! I'm curating the brilliant IDPW into this year's #relaxationmachine exhibit at Print Screen. The internet is like a roaring noon 24 hours a day. Why don’t we change a chatroom into a bedroom for our sleep?

I will be giving an artist talk in this stream held in collaboration with Ars Electronica, the biggest art and technology festival in the world. Hosted by Michael Badics and Kathrin Meyer.


06.2016 | #relaxationmachine, Print Screen, Holon, Israel

I am curating a special exhibition for Print Screen festival this year, asking: what is the relationship between technology and relaxation -- between technology and sleep, even? How do our dreams relate to the divinations and future-looking inclinations of the technological landscape? How does technology create new sources of pleasure and relaxation, while at the same time denying these in the name of productivity? 

This exhibition is made possible with a grant from Asylum Arts Foundation, and through partnerships with NewHive and the Yamaguchi Center for Arts + Media.

06.2016 | I'd Swipe Right On Yr Metadata, Transart Triennale

I have a new essay out in conversation with the Transart Triennale on metadata and post-sovereign identity. When you get close to another, where is it that you end and someone else begins?

I guest-host episode 18 of Lea Devon Sorrentino's podcast, Lea + The Internet. We dissect the impact of virtual reality and immersive media on our minds, hearts and bodies. The world is shifting from people performing in front of devices to people performing for devices. We discuss the concept of this proposed new medium and the unpredictability of VR combined with the limitations of current reality.
