Nextcity: The Art of the Possible

This month's program for Rhizome's New Silent Series at the New Museum, entitled "Nextcity: The Art of the Possible", explores the rapidly changing urban experience and environment in light of emergent digital technologies, whether invoked in the production of architectural form, the representation of urban space, or the locative interface and other newly available services. Within this set of circumstances, dynamic maps update in real time, garments and spaces deform in response to environmental, biological and even psychological conditions, and emotions are made visible, public, and persistently retrievable. Notions of public space, participation, and the definition of "urban" undergo profound change as a result of technological developments. The panel, moderated and introduced by Everyware author Adam Greenfield, will feature presentations by Stamen Design, J. Meejin Yoon, and Christian Nold, whose work blurs the boundaries between art, design and technological development. Tickets available here.
