Upgrade Vancouver//with David Jhave Johnston

Get springy!

Jhave will talk about his digital poetry and curatorial projects. This will include a swift glance at Year01 public art projects Teletaxi and Transmedia 29:59 in the context of an evolution from installation-based in-situ works. Then he will give a rapid overview of his 2005 work as artist–in-residence at Le Chambre Blanche, project creator of Etay, and curator of Code; and presentation of two future projects that are in process: Amputation Box and Macroscope.
