DIGITAL BEING by Taezoo Park is a series of the media installations created from detritus of broken and discarded electronic devices and based on the hypothetical existence of an invisible and formless creature born within the circuits of technological garbage. This creature evolves and responds to its environment through an atypical movement or specific interaction according to the machinery that it dominates. “TV Being 009” , a member of the digital being family, brings up philosophical questions, such as who am I and where do I come from, by displaying text, basic geometry, and a planet.

DADA .nyc is the only visual conversation platform where people from all over the world talk to each other through drawings. It hosts a vibrant community of artists who have created about 100K collaborative drawings in its digital drawing platform. Using blockchain technology, DADA is channeling this collaborative art into a decentralized art gallery run by smart contracts in which artists have IP protection and collectors get proof of ownership. DADA will project some of its visual conversations as well as its art collection on blockchain. People will also be able to draw and participate in a dedicated visual conversation created for this event.

COMPUTER 1.0 by Victoria Manganiello and Julian Goldman is an interactive installation in the form of large-scale woven textiles constructed with traditional yarns and clear polymer tubing. The tubing serves as a conduit for colored solutions that act as pixels in a display producing patterns and images. Contextualized within a public setting, this installation suggests that viewers more closely examine their relationships with technology by way of their relationship with cloth, a coded manifestation of original computer control. Computer 1.0 hopes to raise these questions through a historical lens going all the way back to the Jaquard loom of 1804 - the first computer.
