WIRED ICONS: A Conversation with David Byrne

(0)
POSTED BY: Lauren Cerand | Thu Aug 21st, 2003 3:49 p.m.

In conversation with Wired magazine editors, speakers in this special series on technology and a world in transformation discuss how their work is shaping the future. David Byrne's most recent project is Envisioning Epistemological Information, a book of artwork done with the presentation software PowerPoint. Byrne explains how to take subjective, even emotional, information and present it in a familiar audio/video form using a medium in a way that is different and, possibly better, than what was intended. Best known as one of the Talking Heads, Byrne has been making visual art for more than 25 years and is represented by Pace/MacGill Gallery, NYC. This event takes place at the 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue (at 92nd Street) in New York City on Monday, September 15, at 8pm, and tickets are $25. Future guests in this series include Barry Diller (10/28) and Lawrence Lessig of Stanford University's Center of Internet and Society (3/23). More info is available at www.92y.org.
