Seven on Seven pairs seven leading artists with seven luminary technologists, and challenges them to develop something new—be it an application, social media, artwork, product, or whatever they imagine—over the course of a single day. They unveil these ideas for the first time at this event.
Loosely inspired by what was to become Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T)’s 1966 event 9 Evenings, Seven on Seven examines the current nature of collaboration in art and technology — and the role of each in contemporary culture — by generating deep conversation between two leading figures.
The Barbican event, organized by Rhizome, marks the first London version of a four time sold-out conference. Past Seven on Seven teams have included David Karp (Tumblr) with Ryan Trecartin, Aaron Swartz (DemandProgress) with Taryn Simon, Dennis Crowley (Foursquare) with Jill Magid and more.
