Martine Syms and Gina Trapani will collaborate at Seven on Seven 2015
The response for Rhizome's Seven on Seven has been overwhelming: tickets sold out in a record-breaking 72 hours. For its 7th edition, themed "Empathy & Disgust," participants include artists Ai Weiwei, Camille Henrot, and Trevor Paglen, with Jacob Appelbaum (security researcher), Nate Silver (Fivethirtyeight), Gina Trapani (Lifehacker/ThinkUp), and others. Over the course of a single day, each artist-technologist pair is given the challenge to make something new together—be it an application, artwork, provocation, or whatever else they imagine. They'll unveil their creations, and discuss their processes, on May 2.
Though event tickets are sold-out, there are still plenty of ways to participate:
- A livestream event will be hosted by NEW INC, directly adjacent to the New Museum—tickets are available on the Seven on Seven site.
- Also available there: tickets to the afterparty drinks, hosted by Tumblr.
- And for those who want to host their own watching parties or join in at home, we will be livestreaming with our friends at Fusion.

We've also added some new partners to the event. Thank you to all those who make Seven on Seven happen.
