Fortune Teller will be featured as part of the 2019 Christie's Art + Tech Summit in New York City from June 25-28. The 2019 Art+Tech Summit: The A.I. Revolution, held in conjunction with Christie’s Education and presented by Hyundai, will explore the ways in which artificial intelligence is making its impact in the art world, as well as addressing its potential implications for the future. Convening top tech minds and innovators from Google, M.I.T. Technology Review, the New Museum and more, the Summit will offer a comprehensive programme of lectures, talks and panel discussions on a topic transforming the global landscape.

Guest Presentation: MAKING MY WAY DOWNTOWN. Software for Artists Day 5, Pioneer Works Brooklyn

Software for Artists Day (S4AD) is a conference that aims to connect communities of artists, technologists, and activists through talks demonstrating expressive and often contentious relationships with emerging technologies. S4AD is a two-day gathering featuring presentations by Eva Papamargariti, ann haeyoung, LaTurbo Avedon, Francis Tseng, Lauren Huret, Dan Taeyoung and Janus Rose — individuals responding to technological assimilation and ubiquity in ways that underscore it’s duality as a tool for repression and as a space for self-realization. The program will end with sound performances by Sarah Viviana Valdez. A public soapbox session will allow attendees to ask questions or highlight ongoing projects in order to find collaborators and build community. Collectively, we will seek to co-opt, critique, and disassemble a burgeoning digital colonialism through language, sound, and creative projects.

All presentations and activities will take place on the ground floor of Pioneer Works, which is wheelchair accessible. Bathrooms on the ground floor are wheelchair accessible. Real-time captioning in English will be available throughout the scheduled presentations, not during workshops.

Guest Presentation: OUTSIDE. Fear and Wonder Part II - An Expedition through the Landscapes of Fiction at SCI Arc Los Angeles

On Friday, June 7th, the second installment of SCI-Arc’s Fear and Wonder Symposium will be held on campus in Keck Auditorium.

That our perception of the world is largely shaped through mediums of fiction is the conceit central to Fear and Wonder II: An Expedition through the Landscapes of Fiction. Organized by SCI-Arc EDGE Fiction and Entertainment Coordinator and Design Faculty Liam Young, the symposium will join an ensemble of directors, concept artists, video game designers, and storytellers for an expedition through an atlas of imaginary worlds, fictional cities, and speculative geographies.
