Check out this opportunity to sit in on a web cast regarding the intersections of Arts, Science, Technology, and Society! I’m particularly excited Executive Director of ZERO1, Joel Slayton, will be participating on the panel, “Transcending Limitations: Two of the World’s Foremost Art/Science/Technology Curators Discuss Creativity at this Intersection and its Impact on our Future”. Details and links below!

Transcending Borders: The Intersections of Arts, Science, Technology, and Society on a Global Stage.

Join the live webcastfrom 5:00-7:00 PM EST at arts.gov and join in the conversation via Twitter at #neaartsci.

This international dialogue around the nexus of art, science, technology, and society in the 21st century is convened by the Salzburg Global Seminar, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Embassy of Austria in Washington, DC. Today’s artists and scientists improve our critical understanding of the world by provoking new ideas, experimentation, and creative strategies. This conversation will feature artists-scientists teams, along with policy makers and curators who champion their work, to examine the impact creativity and collaboration across these sectors can have to shape the world of today and tomorrow.

Wow…that’s sure to be one bombastic show.!

This is the kind of thing I strongly believe would interest Michelle and/or Barack Obama. They really should get some Twitters on that (emoticon).

Unfortunately, I missed this web cast. I was a bit bummed about that because it would have been such an awesome event to sit in on. Art and technology are near and dear to my heart and I’m really looking forward to the next two years of reading and writing up a storm about new media art, in particular. Thanks again for the comment. 🙂
